GTT Online / The Ringbearer and Moving Toward Wholeness: Transformation in the Lord of the Rings Film Trilogy

14 Mar 2024 / , Online US and Europe United States, / GTT Virtual Module / 20 spots left


A GTT Virtual Module with Diana Medina


This workshop uses Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of The Lord of the Rings and experiential practices to create a deep personal experience of being a Ringbearer in the twenty-first century. The popularity of this movie trilogy demonstrates planetary culture’s striving toward a new world myth, as well as our yearning to discover the deeper dimensions of what it means to be human. Interwoven through our experience of the films, we will explore: The Fellowship characters as mythic dimensions of ourselves; Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey; Carl Jung and the realm of the archetypes; the reemergence of the epic soul; film as catharsis and spiritual path; death/rebirth in modern popular culture; Holotropic practitioner as Ringbearer; art, ritual, dance, meditation, and role playing. Seeing the films beforehand is not required.

In 2020 GTT began offering real-time virtual events that are as close to a GTT module experience as we can make them in an online format.

This “Virtual Module” is open to anyone interested. There will be group interaction, teaching, and experiential sessions; everything except actual Holotropic Breathwork® sessions, since HB cannot be done virtually.

Although you may attend this Virtual Module as a stand-alone event, there is also an option for those who wish to get full module credit. In that case, you will be able to make up the Holotropic Breathwork® component in HB-only workshops that are GTT-approved. Up to two of these combined Virtual Modules + HB component can be counted toward the seven modules required for certification.
