After her first experience with Tsehai, Bryant turned her career path toward mental health as a therapist working with youth, and later to higher education, teaching and working to diversify the student body at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.

"That's where my career has taken me — to try and influence the next generation of healers."
