Kimberly’s contemplative leanings began around the age of five with over ten years spent as a Carmelite nun living in a monastery. Her Masters in theology was completed in 2001 and is concentrated upon the adult spiritual journey. She enjoys officiating ritual, offering playful inspiring keynotes, writing articles and books and leading retreats. Her mission is to inspire others to live from their own YES found within. Her TEDx talk gives a taste of what it means to live a YES and is the inspiration for books two and three in her trilogy of insights. She is meditation faculty at Omega Institute and is a fellow seeker and friend on the path to living freely.
