Kienda Valbracht received a Master of Arts degree in Death and Dying on 7/18/2004 from Antioch University McGregor. She is currently working on turning her master's thesis into a book for the general public. Her working title for this book is: Lucid Death: Conscious Journeys beyond the Threshold. Kienda offers workshops on The Good News about Death.
Kienda notes in her blog: As a modern renaissance woman, I am ecclectic and basically far-flung in my interests and abilities. Motherhood has been the crucible for forging my strength, love of life and power to nurture and sustain. I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master and all-round spiritual explorer.
