As Regional Coordinator for URI Southern Africa, Karen is passionate to discover more about the spiritual psyche of people and encourages the development of a true understanding of the inter- connectedness of us all. She focuses her energy on those who want to live in peaceful co- existence with one other. As a white person who grew up in South Africa she was part of the regime of apartheid and as a result now dedicates her life to serving humanity, inspired to live a life of principle, dedicated to a path of peaceful co-existence and collaboration. Her mission is to further this vision through supporting and implementing peace building infrastructures and peace education within governments, faith based communities and civil society to deliver a more loving and spiritually aware environment.
