Founder & Director of LifeBreath LLC / Counselor / Yoga Instructor / Meditation Teacher / CISM Team Member

Lillian 'Iswari' Lennox, LMHC, C-iRest®, ERYT 500 was born in Leicester, England, and lived in Sydney, Australia for a number of years before settling in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. She was called at a young age to understand the path of healing from severe psychological trauma. With an MA in Counseling Psychology and a private practice in Lenox, Massachusetts, she has specialized in bringing traditional, complementary, and alternative (CAM) approaches to assist in the prevention and treatment of complex stress injuries including vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, burn-out, and PTSD experienced in high-stress military and civilian occupations. A graduate of the International Trauma Studies Program at Columbia University, Lillian is also trained in interventions and preventions that promote the resilience, mental, social, and integrative health of individuals, families, and communities who have endured catastrophic psychosocial trauma. She is currently a member of the Western Massachusetts Critical Incident Stress Management Team. Her LifeBreath and Liberation Yoga programs are rooted in the deep belief that we are here to help and learn from each other, as well as from the natural world. Reflecting on the integrative and interdisciplinary quality of her treatments and programs, Lillian is a Certified iRest® Yoga Nidra Teacher, a Sivananda Advanced Yoga Teacher E-RYT 500, and a Certified Level II EMDR practitioner.

What Patients Say
– Michael, Client

“I signed up to work with Lillian because I was in a space of utter torment. It was a point where being present caused me to be fearful and in complete panic. The attacks were frequent: my heart hurt and raced out of control. As a result of iRest work with Lillian, I am able to recognize triggers more quickly and understand why I am feeling anxious or fearful. When faced with a stressful situation, I am able to calm down my nervous system and be present with the emotions that come. My bodily reactions are no longer controlling my mind and my senses are wide open. I will be forever grateful for her guidance and support.”
