Awakening Healers: Your Guide To Understanding and Supporting Spiritual Emergence


In this time of transformation, many of us are being called into action through traumatic events such as near-death experiences or psychic openings, psychedelic/plant medicine experiences, and spontaneous or induced extraordinary states into Spiritual Emergence. We are the Healers Awakening, and all of us are needed!

In a time of spiritual crisis, it may be difficult to find appropriate supports or resources. Western psychology and psychiatry typically pathologize these experiences or states of consciousness and some people are afraid to seek traditional treatments. This is why we have put together an online course that incorporates a peer-support model to help guide those that have gone through or currently going through a manageable crisis. The Awakening Healers course includes psychoeducation, meditations, energy medicine, and Spiritual Emergence support circles. We have developed a template for conceptualizing, honoring, and holding sacred space for the transformative power of these non-ordinary or extreme states of consciousness.

Kyle'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 has been studying breathwork with Lenny and Elizabeth since October 2010. 

Kyle is currently finishing his M.S. in clinical mental health counseling with an emphasis in somatic psychology.
