The healing facilitator is one who has decided not to live for herself alone. She is committed to her own healing to be sure. She has made it a priority. But she is also ready to share the fruits of her journey with others. She is not greedy or selfish. She is not competitive with her brothers and sisters on the path. When fear comes up, she recognizes it and realigns with the energy. She embodies love and acceptance. She is collaborative, cooperative, open, and strives to see the best in others. She does not desire to fix or to save others. Instead she empowers others to heal from within and to step into the fullness of who they are. Healing is facilitated by transmitting and awakening the energy of unconditional love.
In my case by being a healer, a teacher, a friend,
I can serve by leading by example, by being genuine and authentic.
By being prepared to expose myself, to break down the persona,
to peel back the layers and living the real truth of who I am.
By walking through this world with a quiet mind and open heart.
To live in the now, to face my perceived fears, to feel compassion, to see the divine in all of life.
To see the divine in all of humanity - no matter what the colour, race, sexuality, creed, age, or walk of life they may come from.
To look into the eyes of another human being, and look into the depths of their soul, to see the divine with in.
To talk with passion and not just speak, to listen without judgment and not just hear, to look with the eyes of wonderment and not just see.
To live from a place of truth, respect, forgiveness, acceptance, freedom, harmony, spiritual connection and love.
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

THE ESSENCE OF SUCCESS:
"Successful is the person who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of children, who leaves the world better than they found it, who has never lacked appreciation for the earth's beauty, who never fails to look for the best in others or give the best of themselves."
My journey to where I am and who I am has been adventurous to say the least. My spiritual quest began as a teenager in the late 60's by searching for ways to heal myself and my life. I read every book on natural therapies, holistic living, self help, supernatural and esoteric material. I always felt connected to a higher power and my angels and I knew that I was guided, supported and protected at all times.
I was blessed to have a grandmother who was spiritually gifted and who taught me lessons of love, forgiveness and positive thinking. She was “holistic” in her own unique way always trying to heal everyone with herbs, potions, healthy food, laughter and love. She was definitely the inspiration of my life and I always wanted to be just like her when I grew up. My heart is filled with so much gratitude for having Nanny in my life.
Throughout the last 40 years I have completed numerous courses, workshops and retreats in the “alternative” healing modalities and have received a diploma from the "The Institute of Energetic Healing" in Montreal, as well as other diplomas in energy healing, spiritual counselling, shamanic studies and more. I continuously pursue studies and new modalities in order to increase my knowledge and enhance my healing abilities.
I am so grateful for all my teachers and friends who have supported me on my path. One of my many teachers, Peter Goldman from the White Lodge in England who taught me Spiritual Psycotherapy as well as other courses in the 80's used to channel the same message for me. He told me "You came here to be who you are". Well for many years I must admit I pondered over this simple message and what it meant, but now in 2013, I can honestly say that I embody that message. "I came here to be who I AM". Life is about simplicity. Living in the moment. Surrendering to what is. Having faith in what will be. Be-ing the creator of my life and... it's all about love, love, love. I finally got it and appreciate every day with all the gifts, wisdom and knowledge that is continuously being awakened within me.
I AM an intuitive Healing Energy Therapist, Reiki Master and Integrated Energy Therapy Master-Instructor. My true passion and joy is empowering others through private healing sessions and workshops. I teach Reiki, IET and meditation workshops to Kids, Teens and Adults. I also facilitate weekend transformational retreats and am available to give seminars on holistic subjects to empower and motivate others so they can live their life as the magnificent being that they were meant to be !!!!
"Successful is the person who lives authentically with overflowing joy, exquisite peace, unlimited laughter, boundless love, constant connection with the Universal energy and who leaves the world a better place than they found it".
To develop a community of those who want to connect with each other with loving hearts and open souls. To create an environment where “seeing” and “being” the real you is the norm.
My intention is to do and be the BEST I can, every day and with every person I meet, including myself. I will walk in my power and truth, and I will be gentle with myself and with others.
I intend to live each day fully and authentically, to be present with all I meet, and to meet all in the center of their authentic selves.
I remind myself that the greatest gift I can give is to fully see another, to hear another, and to be present with another. I recognize that allowing myself to be seen and to be heard is also the practice of Presence.
It is my goal to honor the beauty in all manifestations of the divine, to find a place within me to love all with whom I have contact, and to respect each one's individual journey.
My own journey is my own responsibility, and I intend to walk that journey fully mindful of it as an offering to the expanding consciousness of manifestation.
For myself and others, I intend the following:
- exquisite peace
- sweet intensity
- overflowing joy
- boundless love
- bountiful abundance
- constant connection with the Universal energy
Inspiring Myself and Others
May I inspire all to move from fear to love and from victim to creator.
May I inspire all to recognize and connect with the divine essence in ourselves and all beings.
May I inspire all to take full responsibility for how we interpret our lives.
May I inspire all to develop, refine, and fully live our deepest intentions in life.
May I inspire all to open to the joy of ever deeper connections with ourselves and everyone around us.
Meeting Karen has been a true blessing for me. She is an inspirational and supportive guiding light! She is so delightful, compassionate, friendly, loving and spiritual..and she always makes you feel at home. Private sessions and workshops with her have so positively impacted my life, even more than I could have ever imagined! I am so grateful to have her share in this wonderful journey.
"I have taken 3 levels of Reiki with Karen and my daughter Veronica has participated in a few workshops with her including Reiki Level l for Kids.
I see Karen as an angel placed on Earth to help people learn about the wonderful things they can achieve and feel when they open their hearts to the energy and magic of LOVE.
Her classes are empowering, healing, fun, filled with great information and techniques.
We now use Reiki everyday and cannot describe our gratitude for the beautiful gift Karen has given us...
Thank you Karen and we are looking forward to attending many many more workshops with you!!"

I have personally taken some courses with Karen and her attention to detail and love is unimaginable, you can see through her eyes just how much she enjoys what she is teaching. When I had my first healing session with Karen, I never imagined how peaceful and comfortable I could feel ~ when you leave her home, your mind, heart and soul are so much at peace that all you want to do is just enjoy and love the moment. My son has taken the Reiki Kids Workshop with Karen and I can honestly say that is an experience that he will never forget, he says that she was so gentle and fun that he wants to take all her courses. Thank-you Karen for the love and knowledge you keep on sending to everyone, you are truly an angel, and I am so blessed that you have entered onto my path of life.
Karen has touched and danced an angelic dance with my soul. Her professionalism, humor, heart filled kindness, understanding to people's needs, wisdom and devotion to the Ushi Reiki system is certainly a distinguishing quality of Karen. Her monthly newsletters are filled with knowledgeable informative and lots of love. This quote should describe it all : “Think Love and everything around you changes” (seen on Karens emails as a closing signature). Namaste Karen!
I had the life changing pleasure of attending a Goddess Retreat this past spring and by life changing I mean LIFE CHANGING! Through a series of divinely inspired events put on by Karen and Nancy and surrounded by other women who were on a similar journey as mine, I came to know my life's purpose at the tender age of 42! The weekend was by far the most incredible spent by yours truly in decades. I loved making my Goddess mask and walking stick. The sacred fire ceremony was like shedding an old worn out skin I no longer had use for and the sweat lodge ceremony was an experience I'll never forget. Good food prepared by loving hands, group meditations, walks in nature, lots of laughter and oh yeah dancing! I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone looking for direction or anyone wishing to reconnect with all that is…
