Launa Kliever, MSW is a coach, healer, educator and organizer with over eighteen years of experience facilitating body-based energy work in one-on-one and group settings, and twenty-plus years working in and with service-focused companies and organizations.
Launa’s passion for and commitment to social justice and equity (with a specific focus on racial equity) has led her to serve leaders who also have a deep desire to shift the paradigms of our current reality. One of her specialties is creating highly-individualized coaching and healing programs of radical self-care and intensive inner work designed to support organization executives, entrepreneurs, spiritual leaders, healers, coaches and other change-makers release blocks they are experiencing on mental, emotional and/or physical levels so that they can lead from a place of greater freedom within themselves. With body alchemy as a foundation, she also coaches those leaders and their teams in a holistic process of creating energetic integrity and spiritual health within their organizations and collectives – work she calls organizational alchemy.
Launa received her MS in Social Work from Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW) in New York City, where she also served on faculty, and now works in the role of Academic & Field Advisor for students enrolled in CSSW’s Online Campus. She spent over 10 years studying and practicing intensive spiritual and energy healing training as apprentice to healer, Sara Rubin, founder of The Phoenix and the Rose: A Center for Healing in Katonah, NY. Launa’s formal studies also include Foundations of the Life and Work of Rudolf Steiner at the Sunbridge Institute in Chestnut Ridge, NY and the Undoing Racism/Community Organizing Workshop created and led by the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond.
After 20 years of living and working in NYC and the surrounding areas, Launa is currently based in Dallas, Texas and is active with the Dallas Faces Race movement and the Dallas chapter of SURJ – Stand Up for Racial Justice.
