“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.” Carl Jung
Previous participants report that:
“Karen's methodology OPENS,OPENS, OPENS and then OPENS SOME MORE.”
“With her, so much seems possible. I found myself drawing, collaging and writing poems AFTER, as well as during her classes... Karen creates a calm, yet exciting environment in which all her students feel seen, heard, and safe.”
"I very much liked the design of the classes. I felt like I was playing and always looked forward to class. (She has) a gift for communicating that and very effective techniques."
“It is difficult to avoid being inspired in her classes.”
