Songs that speak through Kinde’s Soul

Kinde’s Story

My story is both universal and unique . . .

I am the daughter of Mormon pioneers and German immigrants, people of adventurous and hard-working nature. I was born in Utah, early in the 1960’s — a time of cultural upheaval when a new consciousness began to erupt on planet earth. Though I was a child at its apex, this era of free love and peace-not-war imprinted itself in my psyche.

I had a questioning mind from an early age and wanted to know more than my family and culture could offer — and so in limitless, unsatiated curiosity, the journey of my life began.

A Healer by Design

After time in San Francisco working as a graphic designer, I returned to Utah in my late 20’s and worked until my early 50’s in my own design business. I loved design and taught at the University of Utah for a number of years, opening younger minds to the hidden-in-plain-sight principles of negative space, visual rhythm, balance and unity & variety; to the process of designing, and how our human bodies move through and make sense of designed spaces.

A New Path Emerges

I was drawn to climbing. At 36, I married a British alpinist, 14 years my senior, and we traveled around the world, climbing rock cliffs and trekking in big mountains. I was especially impacted by the Tibetan Buddhist culture and mind-blowing magnificence of the Himalaya in Northern India and Nepal, traveling there a number of times.

Self Discovery

All the while, I was investigating my inner self and the world of the unseen — of energy and spirit. Meditation drew me in my mid-thirties and I began an evolving practice that continues to this day. Driving home after my second ten-day Vipassanna retreat in Joshua Tree, I had to pull off the road somewhere in Nevada, walk into a grassy field and sit there as ecstacy coursed through my body and the late afternoon light exploded into surreal vibrancy in my brain.

Then mid-life hit at 42 and slammed me down hard! I left my beloved husband and began a great descent into grief, which lasted nearly a decade. My path led to the underworld and all the richness, sensitivity and depth that intense inner suffering and continued small awakenings can cultivate, as I sought to understand and heal.

Finding Purpose and Truth

Eventually I was led away from my 35+ year career as a designer and into my soul’s purpose — rooting myself in contemporary pan-cultural rites of passage ceremony (which I have guided for almost a decade) and studying & practicing many other subjects & healing modalities such as Transpersonal Psychology and Ecopsychology, Focusing, Reiki, Community Grief Tending, Tonglen, Integral Theory, plant medicine, and Integral Coaching, to name a few.

Now beginning the 60s of my life, I can see an entire landscape spread out below me. Now I know there are sadly no ‘islands where it all works out’; that the deep valleys of sorrow and canyons of being lost, high peaks of spiritual insight and flat plains of everyday living are one inseparable territory — and are all critical to the soul’s development. I know this whole landscape can be an inspiring adventure if traversed with awareness, and company. I also know life is not a solo journey. We are inextricably interwoven with each other and with all the beings and elements of the earth. We need each other.

Sharing the Gift of Authenticity

I know my human wounds and foibles, and I feel the power of my ever-unfolding gifts. I was born to serve in these times of massive change; to be here to guide and support all those who feel drawn to what I have to offer.

In a shared space of sacred relationship, we can explore your soul’s path of evolution together; beyond the culturally conditioned norms of thinking and behaving, through the dark weirdness beyond the first emergence out of the Matrix, toward the liberation and peace that is your birthright.

I look forward to hearing your story.
