Spiritual teacher of the Inka-Nature Wisdom Tradition and international bestselling author, Elizabeth B. Jenkins, MA, MFT, is an American writer of popular spiritual books.  She is a licensed psychotherapist, cultural investigator and organic farmer.


In 1989 a profound spiritual encounter in Peru radically changed the course of her life.


The next 25 years have been devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense journey in communication with Nature and Mother Earth. In 1992, she began her work in the United States with individuals and small groups as an Initiation guide and spiritual teacher. In 1997, with the success of her international bestselling book The Return of the Inka (originally published as Initiation), she began to travel throughout Europe and throughout the world, training thousands of people in the Fourth Level Wisdom of the Inkas.  


Elizabeth is also the author of The Fourth Level (2013) and Journey to Q’eros (2009) which, with The Return of the Inka (translated into 24 languages) are widely regarded as the most influential books on the Inka Nature Wisdom Tradition. Her profound yet simple teachings have helped countless people from diverse paths throughout the world, to achieve wellbeing and find inner and outer harmony and personal power. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that she sees as the next step in human-nature evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists of transforming our fear-based state of consciousness to one of trust and personal responsibility by deepening our intrinsic Nature Intelligence (NQ). This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for healing our ‘victim-perpetrator' relationship with Nature, climate change, and the growing biophobia epidemic on our planet.

Elizabeth is a sought-after public speaker and teaches and travels extensively throughout the world. She lives with her partner Barney and their two sons on an organic farm on the Big Island of Hawaii where she farms, writes and conducts intensives, workshops and seminars on the subjects of: Inka Nature Mysticism, Q’ero Healing Practices and Organic Farming. In 2004, she established a partnership with Native Hawaiian Kahuna, and the indomitable Mother Nature of the Big Island, to bring people and nature together through education, service and sami.
