Early life[edit]

King was born in 1958 and graduated from the University of California, Davis, JD. She was a practicing attorney in her 20s when she was diagnosed with cancer. Choosing not to undergo invasive treatment or surgery, she instead turned to alternative medicine and energy medicine. With the help of a healer, she had a successful remission. At the same time, she overcame her alcohol and drug addictions brought upon by an abusive childhood.[2] King later travelled the world studying various healing systems and ultimately left the corporate world to teach energy medicine.[3]

On 1 April 2011, King published Be Your Own Shaman: Heal Yourself and Others with 21st-Century Energy Medicine, a New York Times bestseller.[6] It covers different methods of energy healing and similar shamanic practices as well as their applications.

Her third book, Entangled in Darkness: Seeking the Light, released on 17 September 2013, focuses on health of the psyche.[7][8]
