Hailing from the picturesque Pacific Northwest, Karen Brown has been a fixture in the esoteric world of Astrology and Eastern Mysticism for over two decades. After a chance encounter with a Buddhist monk in her early twenties, Karen spent four years living in Tibet and studying a host of Eastern religions, Tarot Card reading, energy pathways and Chi, and astrology. Once her journey came to an end and she felt moved to relocate, Karen made her way back to the U.S. and opened a palm and tarot-card reading shop a few miles from her childhood home. With her valuable insight and direction she gained a reputation and a devoted client following. Upon her return Karen took on the daunting task of penning her first book on Astrology. In her spare time Karen enjoys taking in nature's beauty on extended hikes along the Pacific Northwestern trail.
