Biography of Karen Curry
Karen Curry Parker is a #1 best-selling author, Human Design Specialist, creator of the Human Design for Everyone Training SystemTM and the Healing by Human Design SystemTM. Karen believes that we are in the midst of a massive shift in consciousness on the planet and that for us to intentionally and deliberately create a world of sustainable peace and resources, we must know who we are, what we are here to do, and how to activate our potential and our life path. Karen is a trainer and professional speaker who has been a high-performance life and business coach for more than 25 years and personally coached over 7,000 people.
From her work, Karen knows that the single biggest cause of pain and suffering on the planet is the disconnect people experience when they are not living an authentic life. Most humans experience this disconnect as a lack on some level manifesting in financial, relationship, physical, creative and even spiritual pain.
But, most importantly, Karen Curry Parker truly considers herself to be a Child of the World, here on a mission to create a world of sustainable peace.
As a State Department “brat” she spent her childhood moving from one foreign country to another every couple of years. Karen spent a significant portion of her childhood growing up in the Middle East during a time of unrest and fighting. As a seven year old child she had to walk through Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon to get to school. During her walks, she befriended an elderly man who only had a pair of pajamas, a tent, and a coffee pot to his name. Although they didn’t speak the same language, they understood each other and it was through Karen’s connection with this displaced friend that she dedicated her life to easing the suffering on the planet.
Always in a hurry to get things done on the planet, Karen graduated from high school at the age of 16 and pursued two college degrees, on in nursing and one in journalism. Married at 19, she started her own publishing company: Medical Alternatives Press. At the age of 20, after graduating from college, she studied as a midwife and attended home births until the birth of her own children.
After having her second child, she gave up midwifery and expanded her practice to include parent coaching and education. Karen wrote her first book, “Waging Peace in the Face of Rage.” She went on to study advanced energy psychology techniques such as EFT and Belief Point Energy Re-Patterning, and eventually Human Design.
When her first marriage fell apart Karen single-handedly raised her four children, homeschooling them and running her coaching business during the day. At night, after the kids were asleep, she answered calls on a psychic hotline to make ends meet. Karen was ranked as one of the country’s top 50 psychic mediums. Money was tight but Karen knew she had to stay true to her dedication to making the world a better place. It was vital that she show her children the importance of holding true to their dreams.
Through all of this Karen experienced bankruptcy, had her house foreclosed, and even had her car repossessed. She knew her financial struggles were really a manifestation of her spiritual struggles and refused to give up until she figured it out.
Of course, “figuring it out” is a ridiculous idea. Over the course of ten years, Karen finally realized that the nature of Life is infinite abundance and that letting go and letting the path unfold worked way better than using your brain to “figure it out”. When she finally let go, life got much easier. She bought a new house, put her four kids through college, met and married an amazing man, and started a family with him after having a miracle baby at 43.
Intimately familiar with the challenges of being a spiritual entrepreneur and mom-preneur, Karen actively coaches and speaks with women entrepreneurs.
Karen is the creator of the very first Family Coach Certification Training program in the world. She married her nursing training with her training in Human Design and Energy Psychology to create a leading-edge coach training program. Over 100 Family Coaches have graduated since the creation of the program in 2004.
Karen, along with her husband, is the founder of Sustainability 2027, a nonprofit business incubator dedicated to supporting sustainable development, communities, entrepreneurs, and a home-based business.
Karen’s work has been featured on Fox News, Bloomberg Businessweek, CBS, ABC, and various radio shows and tele-summits.
