Kaia is the bestselling author of The Joy Plan, a practical guide to the neuroscience of joy, which was featured on the TODAY Show as the inspiration for the hosts’ week-long “complaint cleanse.”
Inspired by her personal healing experiences with psychedelic medicine, Kaia is merging 20 years of brand experience work in Silicon Valley (for clients such as Google, Twilio, and Doctor on Demand) with her neuroscience and mindfulness research and training to bring the profound healing capabilities of these medicines to as many people as possible.
Kaia works with cutting-edge companies and thought leaders in the emerging psychedelic industry and is also a sought-after mindfulness instructor and psychedelic guide for some of Silicon Valley‘s most influential leaders.
