I’m Glad You Are Here!
I am Karen Janowski MD, a retired physician/surgeon, Transformation Doula, & mixed media artist.
As we navigate the current shift in consciousness and move into a new paradigm for our world, I am focusing my efforts into honing my ikigai, a Japanese concept referring to something that gives a person a sense of purpose, a reason for living.
This website is a compilation of some of the elements making up my own personal happy combination of life satisfactions. I strive to assist others in finding their own ikigai through the products and services offered here!
Serving others has always been my passion.
Having worked in the field of healthcare for more than 40 years, first in laboratory medicine, and then pursuing an M.D. after undergoing personal experiences with pregnancy loss & infertility, I found myself losing my passion and becoming disillusioned with how the system treated the sacred patient-provider bond. This disillusionment led to a lengthy sabbatical, and after a 20 year career as a Board Certified Obstetrician/surgeon and specialist in Women’s Health, I took time away so that I could pursue more joyful activities.
Indulging my love for abstract doodling and glittery coloring, I discovered that combining “Zentangle” patterns with Sacred Geometric designs was very relaxing for me, much like a meditation. I realized that indeed, I was gaining benefits to my health by spending time each day creating “meditative art”. Later, I was inspired to create a line of “Wisdom Cards” using the same designs that had brought me such comfort. Pairing the designs with words & affirmations “channeled” to me by the many pets that I have known and loved, the “Animal Angels Oracle Card Deck” was the first of these, published in 2019. Two more decks have recently been published and more are in production. This website contains links to the most complete listings of our products.
I really enjoy creating tools that foster improved well-being for those in search of it, and look forward to drawing on my knowledge and experience to establish programs and centers that will provide heart centered solutions to the challenges we face as we embrace new paradigms for health & wellness.
