Today we’d like to introduce you to Kurtis Lee Thomas.

Kurtis Lee, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Well, you may have heard of the hero’s journey, my story is the healer’s journey. They say if you plan to be a healer then be prepared to be broken. In my new book titled “Breathwork Detox, How to Thrive in The Age of Anxiety”, I share my journey of how anxiety and panic attacks crippled me. I also share how I had a mysterious stomach illness and was tired of paying the medical industry to keep me sick. Instead, I wanted to HEAL.

When western medicine couldn’t heal me I set out on a journey of discovering alternate therapies, unique modalities, shamanic healings, and plant medicines. I began to educate myself and started collecting certifications along the way e.g., Life Coach, NLP, Hypnotherapy, Reiki Mastery, Fitness professional, Breathwork Facilitator, etc. Breathwork Detox not only changed my life when nothing else would, but it saved my life, and now I want to share it with the world.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
During our personal journey we tend to have more questions than we do answers. Well, one of my greatest discoveries I learned is that our bodies are living libraries that keep score; they record everything that happens to us throughout our lifetime. “The issues are in the tissues.” When these issues go unresolved, they cause pain and wreak havoc in the body. Breathwork helps clear these stagnant and heavy energies out of the body, which can drastically improve our health and manifesting power. This is the basis of the Breathwork Detox: you must first “let go” before you can “let in.” This is where many sabotage their manifesting abilities because they’re not willing to let go of the things in the past that are holding them back from what they currently want. This may be the only reason the law of attraction hasn’t worked for you. You must first clear the runway before you can take off or land.

“Sometimes the weight we need to lose isn’t on our bodies.”

Studies show we are using less and less of our lung capacity over time. The more stressful the world becomes, the less we breathe. We’re not just suffering from physical suffocation but also spiritual suicide. Many people are stuck in the rat race, not living their true life’s purpose. Now, more than ever, people need a tool to cope with stress and anxiety so they can thrive in a time when other people need them the most.

I wanted to take all the knowledge I gained and share it with the corporate world, business executives and their employees. I believe the world is at its best when people are at their best. So I rebounded myself as a corporate mindfulness trainer and created programs, workshops, and wrote two books that became best-sellers.

Please tell us about Breathwork Detox Inc.
We develop programs for our Corporate Breathwork clients and a Breathwork Detox Workshop for the masses. This program includes everything they need to know and do to begin a solid breathwork practice at home, which includes coaching and integration therapies.

“Breathwork is like 20 years of therapy in one day without saying a word”

Breathwork Detox is the reboot you’ve been waiting for! Some doors only open from the inside. Breathwork Detox is the key to accessing that door and tapping into the powers you know are there. You just don’t know what they are or how to use them, yet!

Breathwork is the new yoga; it’s meditation for people who don’t like to meditate, the overthinkers and impatient ones who don’t want to wait for results. There is a breathwork revolution on the rise, and everything you need to know about breathwork is in my new book.

Breathwork induces a flow-state which enhances clarity and creativity by linking the unconscious and conscious parts of the mind. The answers we all seek become more easily accessible to us.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Hitting 2 home runs in one game, one to tie and the other to win (never hit a homer before that so I felt like a superhero that day).

When I was four years old, my mom offered to buy me the new power wheels truck for Christmas and I respectfully declined and asked for a 3-piece suit instead (my mother knew there was something up with me then)

When I was 5 I wanted to be a psychologist.

I Love Humans.

As a kid, I SERIOUSLY wanted to be a superhero. (still do)

My first “real jobs” were working as a paperboy and a door-to-door salesman.

I got in trouble in grade school for always selling things and having a wad of cash on me.

I was the first person in elementary school (including the teachers) to have a cell phone.

I repeated the 2nd grade.
I skipped the 3rd grade.

I go to the movies by myself.

I’ve seen a UFO (more than once).

I’m a Capricorn. My birthday is January 3rd.

I LOVE God and Rap Music.
