Karen has been meditating since 1991, and practicing in the Theravada tradition since 2005. She really appreciates the benefits of a regular meditation practice which for her has included becoming less reactive, less afraid, more open minded, gentler, and much more at ease with herself and others.
Karen is particularly interested in studying the teachings of Buddhism and has spent significant time focusing on The Noble Eightfold Path, Dependent Origination, and the Satthipatthana Sutta, which is said to be the direct path to enlightenment (fingers crossed!). She loves to study the teachings and apply them to her life. “It has brought a richness, curiosity and courage that has benefitted me greatly. May you be mindful with what is occurring in your life right now with spaciousness. :)”
Karen is also a registered dietitian who has been working since 1997 to help people improve their relationships with food and their bodies.
