Drawn to spiritual work by age 6, every step of her journey has led Laurel Kidd, MDiv, to her spiritual wellness role at Canyon Ranch Woodside. “The trick was finding the right setting, spiritually and physically,” she says, “and now I have.” Laurel earned her divinity degree at the San Francisco Theological Seminary, then founded and worked with spiritual groups of eclectic traditions. She designed and led rituals in sound and breathwork, guided meditation, inner journeys, rites of passage, grief, relationships, career change, and personal milestones. She creates sacred spaces where small groups and individuals can connect with what is truly important.
