Ever since she can remember, Kari has had clairvoyant dreams, paranormal experiences and inspiring serendipitous events that whispered in her ear, "Things are not as they seem". As a child she loved playing in nature, swimming in the river, and when alone sitting in my closet looking for light beings that would magically appear in the dark. Bored by public school education, Kari continually received from her higher knowing, "You will study what you are meant to learn later on in life". Growing up in a southern Christian home, she suppressed my deeper desires to study esoteric philosophies and ancient spiritual paths, it felt wrong and wicked. Confused by what path to take, but a desire to serve others, Kari attended the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga for her Bachelors degree in Nursing, all the while knowing it was not where she was ultimately supposed to be. During college she worked as a mental health counselor for high risk youth in a residential home. Kari also mentored foster care children and parents in a non-profit doing wilderness therapy, which led to working with privileged youth, and adults within the scope of outdoor adventure- teaching and guiding rock climbing, mountain biking, white water kayaking and backpacking trips.
Kari spent fourteen years in the nursing field, primarily in the area of surgical trauma in San Francisco, Oakland and Denver. Towards the last six years of her nursing career, witnessing the incredible waste, unhealthy environments and disconnect with nature and spirit in hospitals, she began to research and study sustainability within hospital corporations. She volunteered her time creating sustainability plans and lecturing for Denver area metro hospitals and surgical centers. Kari also volunteered helping refugees from Burma in Thailand and spoke about the experiences, tribulations and lifestyle adjustments of displaced families to Denver metro area teachers who had many Burmese children in their classes.
Eventually, Kari found her true calling in helping herself and others through a heart, mind, body, spirit, earth approach while suffering from a life threatening infection. The fear of dying gripped her. She had many outer body and mystical experiences during her illness, showing her directly of the many realms at play within our human experience. After a month and half of powerful IV antibiotics, facial and sinus surgeries, she asked spirit, "If you want me to live, what is it that I am to do with my life?" She immediately received, "Become a spiritual counselor and study all paths. Follow the signs. They will lead you to your satya, truth". Minutes later an Om sign of capillary refill appeared on her left arm. Hours later the disfiguring and painful facial and neck swelling had reduced exponentially, and the following morning the oral and facial infection was healed, leaving only the sinus's to be drained.
Shortly after, through a series of serendipitous events while traveling in Peru and at home, Kari found the Foundation of Sacred Stream in Berkley, CA, a school for consciousness, where she became a Depth Hypnosis Practitioner and Spiritual Counselor. She attained her yoga teacher training at Axis Yoga in Denver, CO, then soon after she went through a six month indigenous initiation at the Sacred Earth Foundation. She has studied with several shamans at different times in her life and has communed with yogic masters, shamans and buddhist monks from around the world. But, her greatest teacher is life and the guidance she receives in stillness. The path continues to be a most magical and mystical journey that proves to be divinely inspired and guided.
