Holotropic Breathwork and Shamanic Rituals

Dr. Ingo B. Jahrsetz and Magda Solé Psycho.


From August 12 to 20, 2019 at Lake Baikal in Siberia



General tour because for centuries a country of exile, Siberia brought together people of colorful cultures, followers of many religions and unique ethnic groups persecuted by the Czarist and the Stalinist regimes. Today, this country offers the diversity of cultures and nationalities, each with its own traditions and customs, but which nevertheless are united by respect for nature and Lake Baikal, considered sacred. This trip-seminar is designed for those interested in discovering the culture, people and lifestyle of Buryat shamanism. And those who in a spirit of adventure are equally tempted by the encounter with authentic shamanic work for the possibility of experiences of interior exploration that place us in our relationship with nature and our origins.

Siberia, in this part around Lake Baikal, is steeped in shamanic culture. On the northwest slope of the Baikal, shamanism met with the Orthodox Christian religion, while on the southeast slope, it is the very clear influence of Buddhism that had priority.


On the slopes of the picturesque valley of Barguzín and those around Lake Baikal, you reach the lost villages in the Siberian taiga, the wise local way of life. We will visit the nature reserve and we will get to know Barguzín, tranquil corners in exuberant nature, where nothing seems to interrupt the course of the tranquility of its inhabitants.

And we will have the opportunity to meet and work with many shamans, different in their approaches and of course, also, to experience the Holotropic Breathing.

A trip to the place where Shamanism was born, spiritual tradition and means of healing.
