Vicky Nicholson (teacher; advisor; director of GTT Australia) has a passion both for Holotropic Breathwork and education. She has worked on staff at GTT training modules since 2005 in Australia and the US and coordinates the Australian modules.She is particularly interested in working with her community and learning to live the Holotropic principles and paradigm of moving towards wholeness as a daily spiritual practice in every-day life.
She is an educator in Tasmania, Australia and works alongside Aboriginal people to support teachers and students to improve educational outcomes, particularly for Aboriginal children.
Teachers are encouraged to explore and live from an increasingly holistic worldview, as lived by Aboriginal people, to more fully realise their potential as educators for themselves, their students and school communities. Information about the work Vicky and others are doing this field, including videos, can be seen here.
Vicky completed her PhD dissertation which addresses ‘Questions of knowing and pedagogic relationship’ that examines the relationship between effective teaching and how we know ourselves.
She is particularly moved and filled with gratitude to be allowed to be a witness to people’s deep journey work as they venture into their soul through Holotropic Breathwork, as she herself has been witnessed and supported by others on her own journey.
Open to anyone interested. Previous experience with Holotropic Breathwork® is not necessary. Each participant will have two sessions of HB as an experiencer, or “breather,” and two sessions as a partner, or “sitter”. Besides the breathwork sessions and the topics covered (described below), there will be art, music, dancing, film, and integration during the module. In addition to Holotropic Breathwork® breathing and sitting, topics explored in these modules are especially relevant for anyone working with others in expanded states of any sort for transformation and personal healing.
