"What an informative and thought-provoking evening!"
"Karen is an amazing and compassionate coach working with Life & Death discussions with such an open heart that you will be AMAZED how the uncomfortable can become comfortable."
"So excited to be learning from other perspectives that shift mine."
"Who thought talking about death could be fun, and empowering."
"Karen, you're a blessing, thank you for shining and sharing your light!"
"I have never been so inspired to make changes as right now."
An old man was walking on the beach one morning after a storm. In the distance he could see someone moving like a dancer.
As he came closer, he saw it was a young woman picking up starfish and gently throwing them into the ocean. "Young lady, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?"
"The sun is up and the tide is going out and if I do not throw them in they will die," she said.
"But young lady, do you not realize there are many miles of beach and thousands of starfish? You cannot possibly make a difference."
The young woman listened politely, then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea.
"It made a difference for that one."
