Irene Kendig

Irene Kendig, M.A., is a bestselling author, speaker, workshop facilitator and soul-centered coach, whose mission is to inspire conscious, joyous living. She is a trained NLP Practitioner and certified Alchemical Hypnotherapist, with a B.A. cum laude in Psychology from UCLA and an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.

Irene’s debut book, Conversations with Jerry and Other People I Thought Were Dead: Seven compelling dialogues that will transform the way you think about dying . . . and living, has won multiple national and international awards. NY Times bestselling author Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God), called the book “remarkable."

Dedicated to living and sharing the gifts of Spiritual Psychology, Irene is part of a team of graduate volunteers from the University of Santa Monica who have been bringing these principles and experiential practices to women inmates at one of the largest maximum-security women’s prisons in the world, Valley State Prison for Women. The program has been nominated for a national award that recognizes excellence in prison reform programs. “Freedom to Choose,” a moving, 22-minute documentary that conveys the power of this work, was a winner in the Emerging Filmmaker Showcase at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Irene’s soul-centered coaching begins with the premise that we don’t have souls; we are souls. We are souls who have bodies. She facilitates clients from around the world in becoming aware of themselves as souls having a temporary human experience . . . not as a theory, but as a moment-by-moment reality. The result: the ability to live heaven on earth now, from a place of unconditional love, joy and compassion, which is our true essence.
