Chef Karen W. Spirer


Dear Karen,

“Thank you for the hug and the note.  I'm honestly deeply proud of the mother I have become.  I also know that I came of age at a time when teachers with deep consciousness were able to guide me.  I do not believe that our mothers would have had access to such teachers.  Perhaps insight happens in community. That is one of the reasons I value your classes so much. Till next time,

Hi Rosemary (Placement officer at The Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and the Culinary Arts) 

Thank you for sending yet another wonderful person to join us at our kitchen.  I'm so excited to have met Karen and I can't wait to see what the future brings….Karen is an asset to the kitchen.  Skilled & soulful…Karen has the awareness to see the interconnectedness of all life forms and the importance of moving in the dance of life.  I see great things happening, for her and anyone who is lucky enough to work with her.

Dear Karen,

Also, I write Haiku poems…Carry this with you.  This is about you.

‘She is in balance

Woman who nourishes souls

Cooking to heal us’

Dear Karen,

The truth is, your extensive knowledge on such a wide range of subjects, the authenticity you brought to the evening, and your presence, that made the night sooo very special...I could write pages on how sumptuous the meal you prepared was...Viola, C'est Magnifique !!!!!! ...I hope that you...recognize what a huge difference YOU made for everyone in that room…Who you ARE is a person who is loving, generous, caring, and soooo very inspiring.

R.P.

Hi Karen,
Thank you again, for caring, for your graciousness, and for your kindness & generosity…everything went swimmingly…Karen, you were superb!  At a couple points during your (HD) presentation I was overcome with tearful emotion, when you hit on some insight…I also think this (Human Design) will open up new portals that have been waiting for me to finally realize they are there. ..A very good thing…Keepin' that love flowin' back with the extra special hug,

I've been reading the HD workbook which raised more questions. ..The class was great and you definitely put your heart into the weekly presentations...I look forward to whatever format you decide (going forward)...  Carol

Hi Karen…Meeting with you tonight was so great!   I know I am learning about HD slowly, but it has helped me a lot already.  I read your notes and it is amazing how I can see myself for who I really am and I know I will be learning more and more about myself.  This has helped me so much and I still know so little. Thanks again.  You are a wonderful, caring person and so dedicated.  I am so happy to have met you.  I look forward to working with HD.It is part of my goal in taking care of myself…Love, P

I appreciate your caring and nurturing energy coming through your teaching…Best Wishes…V

Hi Karen…Thank you sooooooooo much for everything. I appreciate it all and I will review (Human Design) what you sent to me with pleasure…appreciation…Much love, V
Thanks so much Karen for all this great (Human Design) information that you've sent, and also for everything you told me about the other night : ). I'm feeling very optimistic right now : ) C.B

…to report that everything went swimmingly. Karen, you were superb!  At a couple points during your presentation I was overcome with tearful emotions, when you hit on some insight…Oh, Karen... the reason I was so moved is that hearing  about existing traits and the origin of certain patterns of behavior and responses to the world, and why certain situations have constantly presented challenges, and, most impactfully, a possible explanation for feeling separate and removed from this earthly plane my entire life,  all felt like a big wave going through me, to start rearranging some of the misconceptions I've had about myself.  And it gave me hope that I would be able to live life fully and joyfully, in the moment.  L

Perhaps it is a typical feeling, but I've always felt other people knew a secret I did not have access to, that would help me untangle the disorganization and my battle with time and focus in order to complete things - even thoughts leading to a solution - and feel fulfilled and uncluttered and free.  Some of what you touched on even gave me hope to remedy and dismantle that torturous process!
All that in flashes throughout your presentation!  L. D.

Thank you again, for caring, for your graciousness, and for your kindness & generosity. I also think this will open up new portals that have been waiting for me to finally realize they are there.  A very good thing. Keepin' that love flowin' back with the extra special hug, Thank you, thank you, thank you, again…xoxoxo ~lois L
