My path to Clarity Breathwork began in the early 1980’s while training in Bioenergetics Breathwork, founded in 1954 by Alexander Lowen, M.D. During my career as a film and television actor, I discovered Bioenergetics while studying Dr. Lowen’s pioneering Character Analysis, which synthesizes the mind/body connection. I began coaching actors, often using Breathwork to overcome emotional blocks limiting their creative expression. Over the next several decades as a theater director and coach, I taught these techniques to professional actors, in colleges, high schools, and theater companies.

In the 90’s, I received a Masters of Fine Arts in Theater Directing at UCLA’s School of Theatre, Film and Television. There, under Jean Louise Rodrigue, I studied the Alexander Technique, a somatic posture technique developed by Matthias Alexander, to retrain habitual patterns of movement and posture. I’m also a Certified Massage Therapist, and a Registered Yoga Teacher. Additional training includes workshops in the Gokhale Method, a primal posture technique for a pain-free life developed by Esther Gokhale, and Fitzmaurice Voicework under Saul Kotzubei.

In 2016, I decided to revisit Breathwork as a client, researched different styles, and worked with a Clarity Breathworker. That session was so profound I realized I wanted to become a practitioner and help others experience the remarkable healing power of the breath.

I find the power of Breathwork comes from connecting with your unconscious mind so you can open your heart, heal old wounds, deeply forgive yourself and others, experience a profound love of self, improve your relationships, and discover or rediscover your authentic self, empowering you to live your passion and experience more joy.

Client Testimonials

“I feel safe, heard, and seen.”

“Clarity Breathwork has been the most effective healing modality for me, making profound changes in my life. Brian assists me with tangible, unconditional care. This is evident through every interaction I’ve had with him. I feel safe, heard, and seen. Trusting this process with a person of such integrity has released blockages, especially those associated with male figures from my past.

He’s an intuitively strong and gentle giant. I recommend him, without hesitation, to truly care for you in your own unique transformational journey, dissolving fear
and unveiling deeper love through Clarity Breathwork.”

“Working with Brian was powerful and memorable.”

“Brian has such a presence! Standing well over six feet, he is something to behold! It doesn’t take long to notice that despite his large frame, he has a beautiful and inviting energy; his sweet smile and loving eyes put me at ease and made me feel very safe. Working with him was powerful and memorable. I was able to reach deep places within myself, knowing that I was completely supported and cared for. The results were great healing and feelings of well-being. I am grateful to have met this wonderful man and highly recommend him as a Clarity Breathwork Practitioner.”

“He is totally unflappable, while gently and lovingly supporting me…”

“I began practicing guided breathwork in 1993 with something called Quantum Light Breath, and since then have been guided on over a hundred breathwork journeys with Q.L.B., Holotropic Breathwork, and Clarity Breathwork Practitioners.

My experience of Brian is of a strong masculine energy, with a keen sense of presence and attentiveness, balanced with a feminine holding and embracing of the journeyer as they bare themselves to the “full catastrophe” (as Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it). When I started breathing with Brian, I’d had some twenty-five years of breathwork sessions in those three modalities, and a great deal of psychic change had already been released from the emotional wounding I was carrying.

Up to the point of working with Brian, I’d mostly been able to narrate a “story” about what had taken place during the breathing once a session had ended. With Brian as a Clarity Breathwork Practitioner, it was different. While a story would unfold during the breathwork itself, the all-encompassing expanse of the pain and grief aspect of it would consume the observing mind, leaving a memory of loss, of wailing, and of being wrung out until the tear ducts seemed that they would run dry. Brian held the space for these sessions, always remaining totally unflappable, while gently and lovingly supporting me as I came back to “ordinary” reality.

Anyone choosing Brian to be their breathwork guide will be in strong, competent, and loving hands.”

“Brian helped me to overcome unhealthy patterns and live life more relaxed and joyful.”

“Brian is an excellent Breathwork coach. He intuitively knew the best way to guide me through each session offering great suggestions for integrating my experiences between sessions. Brian’s strong presence provided a safe and non-judgmental environment to explore the darker, hidden motivators from my past, and helped me to overcome unhealthy patterns and live life more relaxed and joyful. Taking advantage of the ten session package allowed for a more powerful and life-changing healing process. I highly recommend Brian and Breathwork as a tool for experiencing life at a higher vibration.”
