Hi, I'm Karen Powers Wan.
With over twenty years of experience as an award-winning writer, sustainability and executive coach, and mindfulness practitioner, I am dedicated to helping women and men become happier, more effective and healthier earthkeepers.
This site offers you new and ancient ways of being a mindful earthkeeper. We have to thank many of the earthkeepers of the past for helping keep our world safe as they could during this past coming of age of humanity.
The destruction of forests, oceans, and our air did not begin recently. It's been in progress for a long time. We can have compassion on how humanity has come to this point.
For some of us, we need to be the voices and hands of earthkeeping for a new era. We are here to create an earth renaissance in small and big ways.
Honor the Story We Lived
As we age, we need to honor our life story no matter what it has been and look for soul accomplishments. This sets us up to be more influential and impactful in our work, our retirement, and elder years. Shame is not a long-term strategy to increase restoration in our world. Increasing respect for life is more effective than trying to shame people into transforming.
Intention is Our Friend
No matter our age, we need to map out our future progress using the power of intention. While we can't control the future, our intentions connect us to the rest of life. Intentions are more powerful than many of us earthkeepers realize, and they affect those we love. Our power to work with intention does not diminish with age and in fact may even be more important than ever.
Connect With Joy
Joyous rituals that we practice every day can help us live longer. One way of creating more joy in our lives is through the use of different kinds of meditations A meditation practice helps us to be in relation to people and life from our most authentic and powerful center. I offer a core set of practices that can help you strengthen your mind/body/spirit connection to create more joy in your day.
