My guest on the podcast this week features Kim Hermanson, Ph.D. who is a transformative coach, author and shamanic intuitive who is known for her skill in quickly shifting people out of spiritual and psychological difficulties into a place of profound beauty, healing, and creative flow. A series of intense mystical experiences forcefully yanked her out of a conservative Midwest upbringing and profession as a corporate computer scientist and led her to develop Doorway sessions. Kim works with creatives, pioneers, visionaries and mystics to help them integrate their own experiences of non-ordinary reality and to connect with deep shamanic creative energies that urgently want to be expressed in our world. Kim currently serves as adjunct faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She has taught at the University of California Berkeley, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Sophia Center at Holy Names University, Meridian University, and Esalen Institute. She is the author of Getting Messy: A Guide to Taking Risks and Opening the Imagination and Sky’s the Limit: The Art of Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey. In addition to her own publications, she has co-authored several articles with Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience and other books.
