Hi, I’m Ryan.
I’m a Breathwork teacher, digital storyteller, healing artist, and spiritual seeker.
I am the Director and Lead Teacher at PSYCHOS Breathwork.
After working in social media for Disney, Machinima, and many tech startups to help spread their stories, I now use my skills to further my mission: helping others heal. Whether it’s treatment from depression, anxiety, and trauma, C-PTSD, everyone can benefit from Breathwork and the healing arts.
I am certified as both a Breathwork teacher and meditation teacher.
I have participated in ceremonies with entheogens, spiritual medicines that date back thousands of years, attended emotional balance workshops created by the Dalai Lama, and lead hundred of Breathwork sessions.
On my journey, I regularly sat with the legendary Buddhist trained monk Jack Kornfield, learned Vipassana meditation with Mingyur Rinpoche, studied Pranayama breathwork meditation under David Elliott, and worked with sound healers who liberated my body with Tibetan singing bowls.
My previous career prepared me very well for this path. My first book, The Influencer Economy: How to Launch Your Idea, Share it With the World, and Thrive in the Digital Age, detailed the emerging economy of social media influencers that dominate our culture today. I have interviewed media personalities such as Larry King, Seth Godin, Jemele Hill, and Willie Geist.
I write articles, publish podcasts, and host workshops on healing, recovery, and the root causes of pain.
I’m fascinated by ancient solutions to modern problems.
During the pandemic, I have been teaching virtual group Breathwork classes over Zoom. You can sign-up for my next class. I give 10% of all my earnings that support mutual aid groups for Black, brown, indigenous, and LBTQ communities. Read my CV here.
