Kimberly Maya Kimberly Maya is a student and practitioner of esoteric and earth energy systems and has been working with the energetics of space since 1999. She is trained in Esoteric and Classical Feng Shui, Space Clearing, Geomancy and Sustainable Design. For her the Taoists seemed to be on the right path-that humans and their relationships thrive by living in balance with nature and the natural world.
She founded her private practice, Interior Alchemy, in 2004 as a catalyst for creating residential and commercial spaces that help her clients thrive. Interior Alchemy places equal emphasis on the “outer” work of the world and the inner work of the spirit.
In 2016 she co-founded a nonprofit, Avenya, whose mission is to promote a new culture of peace. She is currently working on a documentary film that will explore the journey she has been on the past couple of years working with the spirit of the earth. More at http://www.interioralchemy.org/
