Guest Profile

Kenny Down

Kenny G. Down is a bestselling author, speaker, and an awakened spiritual seeker. This identity has been hard won, coming out of many years of addiction to drugs and alcohol and subsequent recovery. The insights and spiritual principles in his writings are ones he has practiced over the course of thirty years of recovery and helping many others on their journeys of spiritual awakening and self-discovery.

His works include Darko: The Sacred Heart of One Johanee Darko, Awakened Giant, Sleeping Spirit, and The Care and Keeping of a Shan. Darko and Awakened Giant, Sleeping Spirit both won the Firebird Book Award for 2021 and 2020, respectively. In all of these works, he shares from his own experiences and encourages others to rid themselves of harmful thinking and create the lives they were meant to live.

When he’s not writing, Kenny may be found spending time with his most valued treasure – his family. Kenny and his wife live in Seattle, Washington, where he has spent most of his life. They have two adult children.
