About Kirsten Bonanza-Diaz

Energy Healer

Kirsten has been practicing the shifting of consciousness for healing and personal growth since 2001 and is excited to share her passion with you! 


She comes to this work from the belief that _**we all can make the choice to take our wellness into our own hands**_, a choice she personally made in the aftermath of 9/11.  Kirsten’s healing path has included working with a vast number of modalities to which she’s narrowed down the ones she works best with and wishes to offer.  An avid yogi, Kirsten studied Iyengar inspired Hatha Yoga at Karuna Yoga in Northampton, MA with Eileen Muir receiving her YT200 in 2013.  She has a deep love for the power of the restorative asana.


Kirsten works extensively with facilitating clients to live the life that they choose. 

Alternative Medicine

Kirsten has handcrafted a variety of plant medicines for your wellness needs that she has grown, formulated, and/or foraged.  In her alternative medicine apothecary at Epione in Asheville there is now a 100% Organic and GMO free, full spectrum CBD hemp oil, flower essences, and various salves & tinctures.

Qualifications & More Information About Access

Access BARS Practitioner & Facilitator

Every time a practitioner takes a BARS class they go deeper into their innate awareness of energy healing.  I've chosen to be at the top of this by taking the three classes required to become a Facilitator - one who is able to teach the BARS to others in the Asheville area  (including Hendersonville, Weaverville, & Black Mountain.)  


I've worked with Nicole Kim 10/18/19, Kimberly M. Rankin 2/29/20, & Athena Lynn Villa 2/5/20

Further Education
