Kaia’s Training

Kaia’s training includes many modalities – spiritual, healing and earth oriented. Her life has been dedicated to exploring consciousness, understanding how we tick (personally and collectively) and discovering how we can transition into a more conscious, sustainable, loving way of being. During the last 30 years, she has inspired thousands of people towards inner peace, health and wellbeing, through workshops, classes, transformational coaching, her books and films.
