What People Are Saying
“As an artist, taking the You Have Permission workshop was quite a stretch for me. I went into the workshop thinking, “Oh I can do anything I want, I don’t need permission to do anything.” However what I discovered was quite the opposite. Working through each session, working through each meditation, I realized I put loads of expectations upon myself and upon others. This workshop helped me understand that allowing myself to be, just the way I am, allowed me the freedom to love and accept others just the way they were, it was a real eye opener to me.”
“Kara coached me through some sticky, murky times when I grieved my father’s death. Her loving presence, her gentle questions, her insightful and creative perspectives allowed me to find a new way of being after loss. It has been truly transformative. Kara brings a light and open heart which is just the balm I needed.”
“Kara’s passion for teaching the art of creative grief and loss is incredible. She is highly skilled and rich in resources. Her kindness and curiosity encourages others to lean in toward a deeper vulnerability—tapping in to a greater understanding of our own loss, thereby increasing genuine empathy for others.”
