Brenton Harris is a renaissance man with a deep love and curiosity for the natural world. Even as a child Brenton was drawn to the quiet, grounding presence of nature and he often spent time in solitude, exploring the Texas hill country. He believes these early childhood experiences were important and influenced his path of spiritual discovery and self study he now walks.
His interest in metaphysical practices began while studying biology at Texas A&M University, and after graduating he began studying and teaching meditation and mind-mastery at the School of Metaphysics (SOM) in Texas and Missouri. In his tenure there, Brenton taught hundreds of students, ages 18 to 80, in both short-term workshops and years-long self-mastery programs. Along the way, he received training and certification in a variety of disciplines, including: psi-counseling and interfaith ministry, Metaphysical dream interpretation and dream coaching, energy medicine, energetic bodywork, reiki, breath-work and rebirthing.
After receiving his Doctorate of Divinity from the School of Metaphysics in 2016, Brenton turned his focus to business ownership and entrepreneurship. Yet try as he might, he couldn't escape the joy and fulfillment he experienced as a spiritual teacher. He left his company in late 2019 and focused full-time on building a new teaching platform centered around esoteric mindfulness and meditation. In the process he found Breathe Meditation and Wellness, and completed the 200-hr certified meditation teacher training program there. As a teacher, Brenton’s influences include ancient texts like the Upanishads and the Tao, Buddhist philosophy and practices from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Pema Chodron, and embodied awareness from teachers like Philip Shepherd and Richard Rudd.
Along his journey, Brenton has been a bartender, radio dream interpreter, project manager, spiritual teacher, business owner, author, minister, and throughout them all, a student of meditation. In early 2022, he moved to Vermont in order to immerse himself in the natural world and deepen his connection to the elements. As a student, Brenton’s current focus includes:
Self-study through the Human Design and Gene Keys systems
Dzogchen, sound, and elemental meditation, through the teachings of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
Elemental purification practices and breathwork, based upon the work of Wim Hof and Lenoard Orr
Elemental mindfulness practices and rituals, with influences from the Golden Dawn, Theosophical Society, Self Realization Fellowship, and the School of Metaphysics
Brenton now teaches esoteric mindfulness, meditation, and workshops in both personal retreat settings, as well as online through Breathe Meditation and Wellness. He serves as faculty for Breathe’s 200-hour meditation teacher training program, and leads the studio’s 100-hr virtual meditation teacher training online. When Brenton is not writing and teaching, he's probably meandering through the woods, on a camping trip with his partner, Tori, and their dog Kaya.
