About Krysta Gibson
Krysta is the publisher and co-editor of New Spirit Journal. She has been on her spiritual path her entire life and brings an eclectic blend of experiences and ideas to her consulting work.
Krysta was raised in a traditional and conservative Catholic home in San Antonio, Texas. Her mother was a school teacher and her father was a carpenter. Krysta attended parochial schools and wanted to become a nurse or a nun when she grew up. (Most women didn’t think of becoming doctors then, they became nurses.)
At the tender age of 15, Krysta joined a small Irish order of nuns. She loved the atmosphere of the convent but after five years, she knew she had another calling and returned to the world, one day before her 21st birthday. In 1983, a friend introduced Krysta to the teachings of Ernest Holmes and she felt she had come home philosophically.
Krysta has worked as a drug counselor (she has a degree in psychology), employment consultant, NC machine operator, insurance agent, Mary Kay consultant, general manager of a retirement/assisted living/dementia community, executive director of a non-profit senior center, and newspaper editor.
Krysta eventually moved to Seattle, Washington and started The New Times newspaper, with no money, no rich relatives, and only one or two local contacts. The New Times grew to have more than 40,000 readers and became well-known nationally as well as in the Pacific Northwest.
During the 11 years she published The New Times, Krysta met and interviewed some of the great spiritual minds of our times, including Dr. Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Shakti Gawain, Julie Cameron, John and Jan Price, and a multitude of others. She studied many different traditions and was exposed to a very wide variety of ideas.
She eventually sold The New Times and made her way into the world of eldercare where she managed a retirement and dementia care community and eventually became executive director of a non-profit senior center.
In May of 2005, at the urging of many friends and former New Times readers, Krysta started a similar newspaper, New Spirit Journal. Since then she has written several books, two of which have been published in Spain, as well as several audio programs.
