“When I was a child, I knew only that I was in love with God. I didn’t know this was called Bhakti. I can honestly say, my only desire was to be able to have a relationship with the Divine. That was and continues to be the driving force in my life. As I have grown, my own understanding of who I am has changed and evolved. My original desire, however, remains the same. I know my dharma is to serve and help people awaken to their True Divine Nature by encouraging them to foster their own inner connection”.

In 2012, Karen began hosting About Oneness, a weekly radio program focused on celebrating the ongoing conscious awakening of our planet and the realization of Oneness. Karen has been featured in several docu-series and radio programs such as The Kevin Moore Show, They Call us Channeler’s, and the upcoming Gaia TV show, Interview with E.D., to be released March 2020.

Karen is a certified sacred sound, mantra and nada yoga teacher. As a devoted student of Anandra George, she is continuing her exploration of the Heart of Sound and immersing herself deeper into Bhakti and service.
