What People Are Saying

“Kara’s visualizations and experiential exercises helped me work through my emotions creatively, bringing me out of my own downward spiraling mind and opening me to my own depth and aliveness at a very difficult time in my life, simultaneously connecting me to a virtual community.”

Aliza Rothman Labowitz

Art Therapist

“Oh. This is DIVINE. I’m reading Kara’s book: 1000 Permissions Granted. Thank you Kara for this amazing work and gift. This is one of those books to gift to someone as a powerful reminder.”

“I have had the pleasure of having Kara as one of my educators for over four years. Kara has powerfully shown me her down to earth nature, her straightforward manner, her leading edge ideas and social justice philosophy. I highly recommend her as a teacher.” #artfulheart
