"Vocal Medicine is a beautiful book! I had only been involved in Kirtan a few times when I was divinely guided to Kathleen Karlsen. I knew that I loved the way I felt when I was chanting but I didn’t understand exactly why. This book dives into the breakdown of the chants and was exactly what I was looking for without even knowing it! Highly recommend!!"

"Flower Symbols is a precious and enlightening book....The day I read the book, I immediately used it to craft a birthday bouquet that communicated hope, playfulness, and magic. What fun! As icing on the cake, Karlsen also provides an overview of essential oils and healing uses of flowers."
