"Karen’s authenticity and warmth and skillful teaching made this an incredible course."
"A lovely deeper dive into techniques for mindful meditation. Karen is a wonderful instructor and guide."
"Karen not only has an expert command of mindfulness, but a presence and presentation style that makes this information meaningful and personal."
"The two courses I took through Earth and Spirit Center (Basic Mindfulness and Deepening Mindfulness) really propelled me into a profound self-exploration practice. I have added a plethora of useful meditation tactics to add to my mental tool box. It has been incredible to sit in my body and find what I've held unknowingly throughout my life. Mindfulness has been a beautiful unlearning and exploring."
