About Me

Since 2008, Jiri Hanus has been deeply engaged with Holotropic Breathwork, embarking on an enlightening journey into altered states of consciousness that began in the Czech Republic. His path to self-discovery has led him to integrate various practices and healing modalities beyond Holotropic Breathwork. Among these are OSHO tantric teachings, family constellations, and shamanistic rituals. His explorations have taken him around the world, from engaging with indigenous cultures in the Amazon and Siberia to settling in Aotearoa in 2011, where he has been passionately disseminating these practices.

Certified as a Holotropic Breathwork facilitator by Grof Transpersonal Training in 2022, Jiri is devoted to sharing the profound teachings and techniques of Stanislav Grof in Aotearoa. He believes deeply in the power of this work to transform and heal, and he is committed to facilitating these experiences for others.

Beyond Holotropic Breathwork, Jiri's practice encompasses the sacred use of Cacao medicine. As a Keith Cacao practitioner, he employs this powerful plant in conjunction with Trance Dance Ritual. This unique ecstatic dance technique, which involves the use of a blindfold, creates an immersive experience that allows participants to enter altered states of consciousness through the synergy of music and movement. Since 2016, Jiri has been leading frequent monthly circles across Aotearoa, inviting participants to explore and experience these profound states of being.

Jiri is also a trained facilitator of Kambo ceremonies, certified by the International Association of Kambo Practitioners (IAKP). He has been offering sessions with this potent cleansing medicine from the Amazon rainforest in New Zealand since 2017. Kambo is known for its powerful purgative effects, offering deep physical and spiritual cleansing. Jiri's practice with Kambo stands as a testament to his diverse expertise in traditional and contemporary healing modalities, reflecting his holistic approach to wellness and spiritual growth.

I am looking forward to meeting you in one of the events.
