I had the honour of experiencing the private one-on-one Reiki Level 1 & 2 immersion course with Karen and it truly was a transformational week in the sacred & cozy little town of Monteverde.

Karen was so kind, professional and skillful and I am as picky as they come when massages are at stake. What a blissful hour - wish I had more time in Monteverde to squeeze in another session. Book her!

Magical Massage. Karen's hands are fabulous and communicated in a divine way with my body. Our energies were having a great conversation with one another. Mystically beautiful and I felt totally at peace and connected with Spirit after the massage. In my opinion a not to be missed adventure, just as essential as going to the forests reserve. Highly recommended.

Karen is, first, and foremost, a gifted healer. I am a "senior citizen" with balance and mobility issues; and Karen had the sensitivity to find the origins of the issues and gently address them, as well as provide added information about what else might be of help. During my two-month visit - to volunteer at a local school - I... More
