The report about work in the field of Holotropic breathwork
The report about my work in the field of holotropic breathwork from 1989 until June 2017. The type of work and some changes as to the practical application of the method.
The vision of the meaning and the impact of the method which I have acquired during the years of its practical use. The interconnection of mental and physical processes and the importance of awareness in all the areas of mental and psychosomatic issues.

She worked for two years in the Psychiatric hospital of Kosmonosy. Between 1968 – 1991 she worked at Psychatric Clinic in Prague. From 1993 she has run a private mental health practice. After 1989, she studied the method Holotropic breathwork with professor Stanislav Grof. She has been organising intensive week-ends workshops together with her team for people interested in this method. In 2016 she was asked by the representatives of the organisation Grof Transpersonal Training to change the name of the method which she used so far since it does not respect all the rules required by the institution GTT. In June 2017 she passed the above mentioned therapeutic activity and its leading on PhDr. Otakar Chaloupka. During all this time she continues to work in the field of psychiatric consultation.
