In 2000, Kiva Spirit Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, was created to provide affordable, sliding-scale health services and educate those in the community interested in healing techniques. The philosophy of Kiva Spirit Foundation is based on giving people the tools they need for their own health and healing. Educational seminars, as well as one-on-one counseling, are available through Kiva Spirit Foundation. Kiva Counseling Group and Dublin Health Center are part of Kiva Spirit Foundation.

Kiva Spirit Foundation offices are located in Livermore, CA, and offer services to the San Francisco East Bay, Santa Clara County (Silicon Valley), and associated areas.

We are more than happy to design a custom class for your needs. If you would like more information or would like to be informed of new seminars, please e-mail us at info@kivaspirit.org or call (925) 485-9370.
