I was just forwarded an article by my friend Barry Martin,
Kiara Windrider spent much of his early life traveling and practicing various spiritual traditions in India. A lifelong interest in environmental awareness, peace making, and social justice led to a dual degree in Peace studies and International Development through Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas.
Later, he completed a graduate program in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology through JFK University in Orinda, California, and worked for many years at an alternative psychiatric center called Pocket Ranch Institute, which specialized in healing emotional trauma and facilitating spiritual emergence. He received a psychotherapy license (MFT) from the State of California in 1998. He has also trained in various forms of bodywork, breathwork, hypnotherapy, and shamanic healing.
Kiara is an avid science researcher, exploring connections between galactic cycles, climate change, ancient history, quantum physics, systems theory, human behavior and spiritual awakening. As an outcome of this extensive research he has come to the firm conviction that we stand collectively at the brink of a quantum evolutionary leap beyond our wildest dreams.
He is currently focused on planetary healing using a system of anchoring divine light known as Ilahinoor. He also teaches Inka shamanic practices, into which he was initiated by Juan Nunez del Prado. Kiara has worked with Egyptian, Huna, Celtic and Sufi traditions, and is also rooted in Integral Yoga and the Advaita traditions of India. He has studied with Slovenian geomantist Marko Pogacnik, exploring the elemental worlds of nature, and learning to communicate deeply with the soul of Gaia.
He travels extensively, offering workshops and retreats worldwide for awakening to our infinite potential. His greatest wish is to live fully in the wonder of each moment, and to help awaken this beautiful planet to its luminous destiny.
Kiara is the author of Doorway to Eternity: A Guide to Planetary Ascension, Deeksha: Fire from Heaven, Journey into Forever: Surfing 2012 and Beyond, Year Zero: Time of the Great Shift, Ilahinoor: Awakening the Divine Human, Gaia Luminous: Emergence of the New Earth, Homo Luminous: A Manual for Conscious Evolution, and Issa: Son of the Sun.
