Kiara Windrider spent much of his early life traveling and practicing various spiritual traditions in India. A lifelong interest in environmental awareness and planetary healing led to a degree in Peace and Environmental Studies 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 has developed 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, Kashmir Shaivism, 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.
Kiara is the author of Year Zero, Ilahinoor, Gaia Luminous, Homo Luminous, and Issa. He can be accessed through his website, Kiarawindrider.net, FB page Kiara Windrider, and YT channel, KiaraWindrider, and is available for retreats and seminars worldwide.
