Interview with Carolyn Green PhD, Holotropic Facilitator - How the Power of Breath Can Heal You

Updated: Oct 19, 2022

Carolyn Green, BSc(PT), PhD, has facilitated over a thousand non ordinary sessions using holotropic breathwork in workshops and individual sessions in BC and Alberta and co-founded

Carolyn’s research includes areas of pharmaceutical safety and policy. She is a non-practicing physical therapist with decades of experience and has worked in volunteer capacities in China, Africa, the Caribbean and Nepal training the first Nepalese physical rehabilitation workers.

For Carolyn the holotropic paradigm is powerful and valuable because it blends the best of the western scientific scholarly traditions with the practical wisdom of long standing world spiritual traditions to provide rapid access to the power within.

This episode also pays tribute to Remembrance Day traditions old and new, as we continue our way through this pandemic, and find ways to overcome what we have lost.

What is Holotropic Breathwork?

I heard something recently that I know rings true: The reason most people don't reach their goals in life is because they don't have a clear idea of what their goals are. And then for those who do have a clear vision, they don't stick with the daily process of working on reaching those goals until the job is done.

It means finding fulfillment in each day, and purpose in life, at any age.
