Kyle Buller’s interest in exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness began at the age of 16 when he suffered a traumatic snowboarding accident. After this near-death experience, Kyle’s life changed dramatically. Kyle subsequently earned his B.A. in Transpersonal Psychology from Burlington College, where he focused on studying the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness by exploring shamanism, Reiki, local medicinal plants and plant medicine, Holotropic Breathwork, and psychedelic psychotherapy. Kyle has been studying breathwork with Lenny and Elizabeth since October 2010.
Breathwork is a powerful technique that fosters healing, transformation, and self-exploration and discovery. Breathwork holds the potential of producing a cathartic experience that can help shed the mind and body of accumulated stress and trauma, by potentially re-experiencing particular life experiences. This technique should not be substitute for any traditional forms of therapy. Breathwork can though, help deepen your own personal inner-work and hold the possibility of gaining new insights about one’s self.
