Holotropic Breathwork

In this (our first) episode Cat and Rebecca talk about their experience trying Holotropic Breathing a practice in which you breathe weird until your carbon-dioxide deprived brain produces visions. We dance, writhe around on the floor and wave our spirit fingers at the other hippies in a sharing circle.

The conversation veers from how we know what is really real to prehistoric bog bodies and the potential dangers of alternative health practices.

Exploring esoteric, paranormal and spiritual topics from two completely different perspectives it’s The Seeker and The Skeptic.
