MEET KAIA

Kaia with Katie Couric
Kaia Van Zandt is a celebrated author and teacher whose novel, Written in the Ashes, chronicles the events that led up to the burning of the Great Library of Alexandria, Egypt. Kaia’s spiritual journey began at age 14 when she founded the youth division of the Humane Society of the United States. Then as a junior in high school, she traveled to the Earth Summit in Brazil, where she taught meditation, and was given the opportunity to work with world leaders on the challenges facing humanity and the planet today, an experience that profoundly influenced her work. She’s a graduate of Antioch University, where she focused on the intersection between the ancient Goddess traditions and modern culture. Her fascination with healing-both personally and collectively – led her to yoga. During her career she’s worked with thought leaders like Marci Shimoff and Deepak Chopra, actors like Ashley Judd, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Garry Shandling, as well as Sony ImageWorks, UCLA Medical, and the San Francisco 49ers. Her beloved writing mentor is bestselling novelist/humorist, Tom Robbins.

 

“It was such a pleasure working with you, Kaia.” –Ashley Judd, actress, activist

WRITTEN IN THE ASHES

Kaia’s debut historical novel, Written in the Ashes, features the untold story of the events that led up to the burning of the Great Library of Alexandria, Egypt. It follows the life and death of celebrated philosopher/astronomer Hypatia of Alexandria. A novel full of powerful women working together against impossible odds, it’s one of the first books of its kind to illustrate the hero’s journey for women.

“Written in the Ashes is one of those rare novels that sets ‘history’ afire, to bathe readers in the glow of a greater, hotter truth. Fans of the Mists of Avalon will find this romantic/alchemical/feminist/spiritual epic equally captivating.” -Tom Robbins, New York Times bestselling author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

    I first met Leonard when I was 15, and heard “Suzanne” and discovered a soul who could put poetry to my pain. A Zen master, a lover, a voice of light in the darkness, he lived his words. I realize he was ready to leave us, and I think how wonderful it is that he left behind his beautiful ashes, the songs and words of his heart. Fuck personal development, people. Just listen to Leonard. Be soothed by the voice of love laced with truth. “Who by fire? Who by water? Who in solitude? And who in this mirror?… And who shall I say is calling?” Return to God, beloved, be free. #RIP #LeonardCohen #loveyou #peace #goodtimetogo

  • ‘A SLEEP OF PRISONERS’
    BY CHRISTOPHER FRY

    The human heart can go the lengths of God…

    Dark and cold we may be, but this
    Is no winter now. The frozen misery
    Of centuries breaks, cracks, begins to move;
    The thunder is the thunder of the floes,
    The thaw, the flood, the upstart Spring.

    Thank God our time is now when wrong
    Comes up to face us everywhere,
    Never to leave us till we take
    The longest stride of soul men ever took.

    Affairs are now soul size.

    The enterprise is exploration into God.
    Where are you making for? It takes
    So many thousand years to wake…

    But will you wake, for pity’s sake?
    Christopher Frye

    Do they feel love? Or have mid life crisis? Or know the pain of longing? Is life without a central nervous system just a beautiful floating dream? A flutter of energy encapsuled in beauty. So fragile, magical and lovely. #Atticusonfire #kaiaspirit
