Breathwork: A Path To Finding Your Authentic Self & The Meaning Of Life With Bryant Wood


My guest on today’s show, Bryant Wood, had a spiritual awakening at a very early age. He recalls feeling the presence of God in church and crying tears of joy. He was fully immersed in the experience and felt a deep connection to spirit. However, as he got older and entered into the “real world”, he gradually lost touch with that connection and started to build walls and armor around his heart. He became hardened and numb to his feelings, numbing himself with steroids and substance abuse in an attempt to cope with the stress of everyday life.

One day, Bryant had a profound realization that he would do anything to feel something else other than the existential sorrow and numbness he was experiencing. He activated the power of prayer and learned how to use breathwork as a tool for self-discovery, leading him down a path of transformation. He soon realized that by accessing his authentic self, or his “signature frequency,” as he calls it, he could begin to heal the karma from his past and live a more meaningful, purpose-led life.

Breathwork has helped Bryant reclaim his power and express his authentic self more fully. He now travels the world teaching people about the power of breath and how it can help us access our greatest potential for love and consciousness.

In this episode of the Sam Skelly Show, we dive deep into so many cool convos. We talk about the meaning of life, how to find our authentic selves, the power of prayer, and the future of breathwork and VR technology. Bryant is an absolutely incredible human being with so much wisdom to share, and I know you're going to love this episode! Especially if you resonate with some part of his story.
