My guest today is the wild and wonderful Kyle Buller. He is Co-Founder of Psychedelics Today, an education website that offers a weekly podcast and online courses. At the age of sixteen, Kyle suffered a near-death experience which almost took his life. After this traumatic accident, Kyle’s life changed and he began seeing the world through a new lens. The world and his life did not make sense anymore, nor did the world look the same. This loss of self-pushed Kyle to seek a path of self-discovery and healing. 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. Kyle has been studying breathwork since October 2010 with Lenny and Elizabeth Gibson of Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork. Kyle earned his M.S. in clinical mental health counseling with an emphasis in somatic psychology. Kyle’s clinical background in mental health consists of working with at-risk teenagers in crisis and with individuals experiencing an early-episode of psychosis and providing counseling to undergraduate/graduate students in a university setting. Kyle also facilitates Transpersonal Breathwork workshops. We discuss these things as well as psychedelics and Nature Connection. See show notes for discount code. Enjoy the show!
