What is feminine wisdom?
Gina Lazenby interviewed Karen in 2010 - listen to this interview to see if you agree.
With a team of remarkable women, Karen created and hosted a series of women’s forums exploring the questions about the relationship of feminine wisdom and leadership. The Women’s Forums, Honoring the Wisdom and Power of Women Leaders, were held in San Francisco in 2003 and Switzerland in 2005 with Spirit in Business International, and in Santa Barbara in 2004 at the World Business Academy, “Global Mind Change” conference.
In addition, as Founder and Principle of Communicore Consulting, Karen is an executive coach and consultant bringing experience and expertise to the field of organization development. Her clients grow in their leadership capacity while developing the skills and strategies needed to cultivate teamwork, innovation, and committed performance.

Because of a passion for spirit-based whole-child education she co-founded the GreenWood School in 1992, an innovative Waldorf inspired elementary school that continues to thrive today. Her two young adult children, husband, dog, kitty, and cockatiel keep her fully engaged when at home in beautiful Mill Valley, California where she has lived for over twenty years.
“An integrated wisdom in leaders, balanced in the feminine and masculine, is essential to building a healthy and sustainable world. This life-affirming wisdom resides in each of us, centered in our vital and powerful relationships -- with spirit, family, friends, earth, community, and all life. When we link our wisdom with our leadership - we become the leaders who will build a world of health and vitality for generations to come.”
