About Marie Kirkland

Her community brings people together to experience the power of alignment through practical spirituality, inviting each person to live intentionally, deepen relationships, and live aligned and forward while doing their meaningful work in the world.
Through her practice of living with an open heart, she inspires sacred conversations that lead to self-discovery, facilitates classes that evoke curiosity, and empowers individuals to navigate life’s intersections in alignment.
