Sacred Journeys

In 2004, Karen “retired” from her corporate career and spent more than two years traveling around the world, visiting sacred sites and indigenous peoples.

“Somewhere along the way, I began to see the world through different eyes,” says Karen, “and I realized that I was on a unique and sacred pilgrimage.”
