For Plato it was the cardinal virtues, for Kant it was the challenge to know, Mill obsessed over liberty and individuality, the value of symbols occupied the meaning of life for Lame Deer, and for Gandhi, it was the value of truth.

Through her hospice work, Dr. Wyatt has shared the moment of crossing over with many … Karen’s approach to preparing for one of the most important days of our lives is very real, and it turns out that this preparedness gives rise to miracles that we may have otherwise missed in our everyday life. There is a glorious finitude to our human existence in this time and space, and Karen catches this mystery while inspiring all to live more fully every day!” – Eldon Taylor – Author of Choices and Illusions
