How To Follow Your Truth with Karen Munna
Owner, Founder, and Custodian of AHKí Retreat in Costa Rica, Karen Munna is dedicated to helping and inspiring others to follow their truth. Karen followed the signs that showed her AHKí was a space people needed. It's not that she chose the path, but rather that she was open to letting the path choose her. She reflects on the collective healing journey we are all on together during the pandemic, how the old paradigm was no longer serving us, and why this moment of pause has created a space for deep reflection and heightened awareness. The journey of self-inquiry is just that...a journey, not a destination. Which is why it is essential to be kind to yourself every step of the way. By having faith that you are where you need to be, you will receive everything you need to follow your ultimate truth.
