Her study continued in the Mystery Schools of the Ancients. She has been on a quest to tap into the intuitive and collective consciousness of colors, symbols and the creative process.
After New Mexico she went on to California where she produced a set of spiritually awakening meditation cards from highly detailed colored pencil drawings of nature and portals. In California Kayley completed a Masters in Spiritual Science and Doctorate in Transformational Studies.
