Eddie LeShure’s path of recovery led him from prison to awakening with the help of psychedelics, breathwork, yoga, and meditation. He is the co-founder of A Mindful Emergence, where he provides preparation, facilitator, and integration services for those intentionally using plant medicines and other psychedelics. 

Eddie Leshure’s personal journey took him deep into the throes of active addiction and incarceration on a drug arrest. His two years behind bars were mostly spent in the notorious Attica Prison where he survived a rebellion in 1971 that killed 43 inmates and employees. As a survivor of extreme trauma, his personal healing and how he works with others has always been guided by deep understanding and compassion. 

Eddie is a Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT 200), Meditation Teacher, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC), Certified Peer Support Specialist (CPSS), Spiritual Emergence Coach ® (IMHU),and Breathwork Facilitator. His primary passion is providing trauma-sensitive, somatic mindfulness and self-compassion practices to support us effectively embracing our full range of thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.
