Karen began studying vipassana meditation in 2003 with the teachers of Deep Spring Center as a way to gain perspective on the anxiety she was experiencing about her husband’s illness. The practice has been invaluable in helping her be present with the moment-by-moment arising of experience and the ever-present spaciousness inherent in our thoughts and emotions. She resonates with the practices of kindness and compassion and has found that the open heart has room for everything we experience in life.
Karen joined the teacher training program at Deep Spring Center in 2009 and has taught classes for Deep Spring, Still Mountain, and Ann Arbor Rec and Ed. She is a member of the Still Mountain Teacher Council.
