Gracia Gimse Mckinley

Gracia finds great joy in supporting seekers in the process of awakening. She acts as a mirror to reflect the wholeness and beauty that exists at the core of your being.

Through evolutionary astrology readings, Gracia interprets the meaning of the symbols in your birth chart to offer insight into your soul's evolutionary intention in this lifetime.

With over two decades of experience, Gracia empowers students to attune to their own inner wisdom in order to live authentic and meaningful lives. She combines astrology, meditation, ritual, and physical practices to support people in connecting to their true Self and to sacred consciousness.

Gracia teaches in a variety of venues including yoga studios, conferences (Sedona Yoga Festival, Parliament of the World's Religions, Women and Spirituality Conference, Minneapolis Yoga Conference, Yoga Alliance Conference), and corporations such as Microsoft and Amazon. She is the author of the 'Ask the Swami' column in  MN Yoga + Life Magazine.

Gracia is an ordained householder swami (minister) through the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago. She and her husband, T McKinley, are the co-founders of My Spirit Community.
