Carista Luminare, Ph.D.

In 1978, I found myself at Harvard University, struggling to reconcile the traditional western perspectives of psychology with a more holistic approach to spiritual awareness. With the gracious support of the department chairman, we co-created a personal study program that enabled me to embark on what was to become my life's work — understanding human potential and soul consciousness and applying this to practical and contemporary applications.

Over the next 30 years, I studied the world’s spiritual traditions, traveling across Europe, India, Asia, and the Americas. My goal was to distill the core teachings and practices from these diverse cultures and organize them into a holistic health model for soul embodiment, or for actualizing the True Self. I began to apply these techniques through a wide range of counseling services, writing a book and teaching about integrating holistic consciousness into parenting practices and into enlightened business leadership. I have lectured throughout the United States at conferences, hospitals, health centers, and universities and I have been featured in a variety of national media.


What has emerged is a concentrated and growing private practice with a select group of uniquely intelligent and capable over-achievers. The set includes CEOs, general partners, and senior executives who have experienced exceptional professional success yet lack profound joy and self-awareness. I’ve created a highly-customized and effective program for helping these individuals discover who they are and what they really want to do with the rest of their lives. The clients who benefit most from this approach are those who are willing to examine their historical limiting patterns and to empower themselves to become their True Self. My success with these clients has been the inspiration for my True Self Unlimited programs.

I currently have practices in Petaluma and Marin, CA. I live in Petaluma with my family.
