The KivaGarden is grounded in the research of:
Together these researchers promote the ability for us as sensitive Intuitive Feeling types to engage in wholehearted living.
As part of the 2019 school year, we will be launching into an intensive and interactive study of Brene's Gifts of Imperfection. We will then follow with Daring Greatly in preparation for engaging in wholehearted leadership through the KivaGarden's Speaking Daringly. It is with the foundation of Brene's work, research, insights and stories that we will be able to embrace the concepts of Gap Minding and Disruptive Engagement more fully.
Open to all, the Gifts of Imperfection Study Group explores Brene's work chapter by chapter. As an Authenticity and Accountability group we sustain each other in DIGging deep! :)

We can decide as a group what to do about Halloween! :)
It was the spring of 2016 that I met a young man - a university graduate who happened to be an Intuitive Feeling type empath who said to me, "No one took me aside in grade one and said to me, 'You have special gifts and talents to develop. We are going to put you in a class where you can learn some skills to manifest them more fully in this lifetime.''"
Instead, he disclosed, "They put me in the class with the kids with ADD, ADHD and things like that. Mind you, it was good for me. It was a smaller class size and I got more attention."
I have thought of him often as I have created the KivaGarden. What would those classes look like? What skills would be developed, honed and mastered? Hence the conception of:
There is more information on each page about each series.
But, when it comes to Boundaries for Empaths there are a few questions to consider:
During this 8 week workshop, we will engage in various activities - hands, hearts and heads - to strengthen and reinforce your knowledge of yourself and your own personal boundaries. Participation in these activities will include, but are not limited to, emotionally provocative stories, role plays, reflective exercises, contemplative activities in small groups, and Soul Realignment reviews. Explore the Workshop Description for more information >>.
To ensure the principles are integrated into our whole beings, homework is provided. Reflection and Introspection are key to embodying healthy boundaries and thus manifesting your Divinity by becoming the Producers of Light you were meant to be.
Due to the sensitive - empathic - nature of Intuitive Feeling types group size is limited: between 6 and 8, with a maximum of 12.
The location for this group has been set. A change will occur on October 19th.
Please arrive on time!

Are you an Intuitive Feeling type? (INFJ, ENFJ, INFP, ENFP) Do you self identify as an Earth Angel?
Then Raising OurSelves as Secure Earth Angels is for you as we explore a process of self-evolution, growth and development. Here we will explore the specific needs of Intuitive Feeling Type empaths when it comes to creating secure attachments in all of our relationships: including our relationship with ourselves.
You will come out of this workshop having greater understanding of who you are as an Intuitive Feeling type, knowing you are not alone, having experienced a safe and secure environment while you explore (both internally and externally) where you can share your experiences on the path of becoming the best counselor, teacher, healer, artist that you can be!
NOTE: While Raising Secure Earth Angels has been developed as a program for parents, you need not be a parent to attend this workshop! These sessions are for you to learn how to raise yourself as a secure Earth Angel! ;)

Pre-requisite: Raising Secure Earth Angels
For over ten years Kimber Leigh Kara, MEd, has been creating a safe and secure environment for individuals to explore when it comes to personal and professional development. Through interactive workshops/mentoring Kimber guides, mentors and sustains others while individuals engage in growth, development and empathetic shifts. Upon returning to the KivaGarden Kimber has created, everyone experiences Fill-My-Cup moments that foster both security and emotional resilience.

If you are ready and willing to explore possibilities: Come as You are!
What would it be like for you as an Intuitive Feeling type (INFJ, ENFJ, INFP, ENFP) to feel your feelings - all of them - without shame?
What would it feel like - now that you have strong emotional boundaries having completed Boundaries for Empaths - to obtain self-mastery in regulating your own feelings so that you can assist others through co-regulating theirs while applying Emotional First Aid?
What would it be like for you to be able to lean into the discomfort of sadness, anger, fear and all of their intensities, permutations and combinations?
What kind of lease on life would you have with those kinds of internal resources, skills and abilities?
Enter Kira's Enchanted Wood. Participate in Feeling Fully: 6 dynamic sessions offered between the middle of November to the middle of December (following the 8 weeks of Boundaries for Empaths).
During those 6 - 2 hour - sessions we will engage your entire being in a learning experience: hand, heart and head. Engaging fully includes: role plays, working in pairs, brainstorming in groups, discussing concepts and storytelling. Homework is provided for introverts who like time to prepare in advance before speaking in a group setting.
Feeling Fully Part II (Emotional Identification + Boundaries) will be available soon!
The KivaGarden is excited to present: Feeling Fully in the Enchanted Wood.
As the first part of the Emotional Intelligence for Empaths Series (EQ4Es), we will be expanding your awareness, understanding, and vocabulary when it comes to being a feeling type. Coupled with understanding how your subconscious uses your body to communicate, you will have a greater understanding of what is yours, and what belongs to someone else. In this way Feeling Fully is all about understanding and extending your own personal emotional boundaries taking some of the turbulence out of being a sensitive Intuitive Feeling type empath.
You will then be prepared for Speaking Daringly in the Gazebo Pavilion. This workshop is being created specifically for those with the Divine Gifts of Communication and Truth. It is also being created for Indigos and Crystals.
Each workshop in the EQ4Es series builds on the skills of the previous one: as such, Feeling Fully is a pre-requisite for Speaking Daringly, which is a pre-requisite for Seeing Clearly.
While not a requirement, it is strongly recommended that Boundaries for Empaths be taken and completed before the commencement of Feeling Fully.
NOTE: Dates are just a placeholder, so a post can be put on the calendar!
Once we understand our feelings, and their connections to our body (as explored in Feeling Fully) the next things we need to learn - as Intuitive Feeling types are:
It is not until we are armed with boundaries and discernment that we as Intuitive Feeling types can step forward as the World Changers that we are. As Idealists we are the Healers, the Teachers, the Counselors and the Champions of the world. While we make up only 15% of the population we are the only psychological type that is concerned with relationships (of all kinds). It is our role. It is our birthright. It is our Divinity.
Speaking Daringly is the second part of the Emotional Intelligence for Empaths Series (EQ4Es), we will be expanding on the emotional boundaries we established during Feeling Fully to explore our mental, physical and spiritual boundaries. Discernment and Empowerment follows.
Speaking Daringly is being created specifically for those with the Divine Gifts of Communication and Truth. It is also being created for Indigos and Crystals.
While brief descriptions are available at this time, more will be revealed as the September approaches.
One of the most impactful books that I have read, long before I was considering a Masters in Education or even contemplated getting a certificate as a Life Skills Coach, was about boundaries. It's powerful ripples taught me what no one else in my reality had even considered. Thus it is the foundation of this workshop. I am thrilled to be sharing, modeling and mentoring these fundamental Emotional Intelligence skills for Empaths! KK
At the KivaGarden we needed to create a new space for this phenomenal program: Seeing Clearly. But what with the Magical Meadow, the Opalescent Orchard, the Galvanizing Fireside, the Enchanted Wood, the Gazebo Pavilion what more could there be? And what could be connected to Seeing Clearly? Then, what could be used as an icon?
While all of these questions rose, one that didn't was: what is this program about. In fact the programming that will be presented during Seeing Clearly was created two years ago, when I read Daring Greatly! It was the chapters on Gap Minding and Disruptive engagement that Awaken [My] Indigo Power. At last, the critical thinking skills I acquired during both my Bachelor of Science and Master in Education (Adult Education) would go to good use. Add to that Raising a Secure Earth Angel - a Crystal - positioned me perfectly to braiding this knowledge, experience and research together!
I am stoked!
Thank goodness I kept all that material when I moved twice in a matter of 6 months last year!
Seeing Clearly is the third part of the Emotional Intelligence for Empaths Series (EQ4Es). In combination with Speaking Daringly, this workshop has been created for those with the gift of Divine Truth and for all my daughter's people.
Lol, I already wove in the personal part of this evolution. Looking forward to you joining me on this ride!
BTW, the answers to the questions were:
But then a new question formed. What kind of observatory?
If we have the Magical Meadow, the Opalescent Orchard, the Galvanizing Fireside and the Enchanted Wood: we needed a descriptor (one in keeping with the magical quality of the KivaGarden). Because this is no ordinary observatory the word unusual seemed quite fitting. So it is. The KivaGarden now has an Unusual Observatory. :) KK
