When she’s not at CSLDallas, you’ll find Rev Karen spending time in nature, taking pictures, deepening her yoga practice, and planning her next adventure. In August 2014, when she got diagnosed with breast cancer, Rev Karen received the greatest gift of her life. This “unexpected blessing” taught Rev Karen that loving herself needed to be added to her practice of BE LOVE in the world. In 2010, Rev Karen discovered BE LOVE as her primary daily spiritual practice. Out of this awakening, she started “BE LOVE – Pass It On.” Its purpose is to awaken each of us to the boundless love that resides within and to be that in the world. Now she teaches that we must also be that for ourselves!

"When we let the love that is within us go out to the God who is in all people and the Divine Presence that is in all things, then we are loving God with all our heart and with all our soul and mind because we are recognizing that the Spirit within us is the same Spirit that we meet in others. This is loving our neighbors as ourselves." - Ernest Holmes
