Donna Spencer

CATC-II, Facilitator and Case Manager

Donna is one of our Certified Living Inquiry Facilitators who brings a rich personal and professional history with addiction and recovery.

She practiced for a few years in New York and New Jersey as a board certified anesthesiologist until the disease of addiction interrupted her career and led her on a journey of spiritual exploration emphasizing service to others. Her approach to recovery combines science, mindfulness based spirituality and the 12 steps. Her areas of expertise are smoking cessation, trauma, addiction education and 12 step recovery. She enjoys dancing, travel, especially getaways to the coast to do 5 Rhythms, Korean day spas and the beach.

Denise Marie Wingo, MA, JD

Denise Marie Wingo, MA, JD


Denise has been helping and holding people in crisis for over twenty-five years; family crises in the mid-nineties catapulted her into a deeper awareness.  Her first formal clinical training was that of a suicide hotline counselor in 1995.  Then, in law school, she worked at the Children’s Advocacy Center and participated in the Children in Prison Project.  Later, as an attorney, Denise continued her volunteer focus to empower and help those in suffering= as a victim/offender mediator, sometimes conducting meditations on serious crimes. Denise  participated in offender to offender mediations with adolescent young women at the San Diego jail, and peer to peer mediator training(s) for elementary age children. 

In 2006, she completed additional training, earning a Masters in Spiritual Psychology. Finding Scott Kiloby’s work was a pivotal moment for Denise. Inquiry deepened her understanding, depth of awareness and capacity. Specifically, she noticed freedom, an increased ability to respond differently in situations that had held her captive for years. She became a Certified Facilitator in 2019.    

Today as a facilitator of the Kiloby Inquiries, her greatest passion is to share these powerful tools and enable others to unhook from old stuck patterns – in any area of their lives – and experience freedom instead.

About Our Founder

This new model discards the shame, stigma, judgment, and punishment that has been a part of addiction treatment for 50 years. Scott is the co-founder of the Kiloby Center for Recovery in Palm Springs California, the first addiction, anxiety, depression, and trauma Intensive Outpatient Program in the U.S. to focus primarily on mindfulness. Scott was also the co-founder of the Natural Rest House in La Quinta, California, the first primarily mindfulness-based detox and residential center in the U.S. Both facilities focus on Scott’s new model of recovery. Scott and his team are currently working on expanding his program to other states.
Scott is also the inventor of Mindful Pain Management, an app that acts as an interface between physicians and chronic pain patients to help patients more mindfully treat chronic pain. This app is a step towards helping to solve the heroin epidemic by helping patients treat pain without becoming addicted to painkillers (addiction to painkillers is one of the leading causes of heroin addiction).
Scott is also the founder of two mindfulness/inquiry training programs: Kiloby Inquiries Community, a training program and group of trained facilitators who work with people in over 12 different countries, and the Natural Rest Advanced Mindfulness (NRAM) training program which focuses on the new and latest developments in Scott’s work. Scott’s training programs train therapists, counselors, mindfulness teachers, coaches, and lay-people in very simple, direct, and effective mindfulness methods.
