Meet Your Holistically Curious Hosts:

Kim Balstad:

Kim grew up in an Air Force Family, and as a result of overseas assignments, was exposed to numerous cultures and beliefs. These travels planted the seed that germinated into a life long journey of learning and spiritual growth.

She has a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Sciences and is the founder of The Aum Nation.  Kim is a certified yoga teacher, Level 2 iRest meditation teacher and Reiki Master.

When Kim is not working on Holistically Curious or The Aum Nation she chills out with her wonderful Hubby, 2 amazing sons, 3 beautiful grandchildren, and 4 super snuggly fur babies (3 cats and 1 chihuahua who thinks he is a cat.)

One of Kim’s favorite quotes is by Mahatma Gandhi.  He said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.”   Kim say’s she can use some work adhering to the first part of this quote but as far as the second half goes…she is 100% on it!  Kim likes to joke that she has the memory of a gnat and says she is sure she’s forgotten most of what she has learned over the years, but the passion and desire is always there to learn more and to relearn what she may have forgotten.  She hopes you will join Teresa and herself on this wild ride as they journey into the vast expanse of holistic knowledge.

Teresa York:

Teresa says, If you are listening to the podcast, it means that you are Holistically Curious and therefore a kindred spirit!  In her journey for a whole and healthy life, she has drawn from her experiences traveling around the world, as well as from the amazing people she has met along the way.

In a quest to enhance her own knowledge of the world around her,  Teresa has obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies (mainly Literature and Humanities) and attended The University of Metaphysical Sciences.  Because life is full of little surprises, she is also a Third Degree Blackbelt in Tang Soo Do.

Transitioning from a city mouse to a country mouse, Teresa recently moved to a rural town in Maine where she lives happily with her husband, 4 dogs, and a cat.

She misses the community of light-seekers which seemed readily available among the larger population of her previous home but she is inspired by pure spirits, wherever she finds them, and happily she finds them in the most unlikely places.
