About Kariman

About Kariman!

I am an authentic, heart-centered, courageous woman who has committed my life to digging as deep as possible into the connection between our big, self-important brain and our vulnerable, sensitive heart. I am constantly curious about human choices and behavior.

I stumbled into finding my true calling through a driving desire to move beyond my illness identity (I have 2 autoimmune diseases) and to clear my self-limiting beliefs.

And what has emerged is that I see people…. (no, not in the creepy movie sort of way!).

I see through to the truth.
I see the behaviors in your way.
I see what is possible for you.
I see human potential.

My 7 personal truths:

  1. Trust the process.
  2. Take no sh*t, do no harm.
  3. Vulnerability IS strength.
  4. Be courageous everyday.
  5. Never assume you know.
  6. Laughter is the best medicine.
  7. Love yourself like your life depends on it.

What Got Me Here…

The 70s

 

I was born in Jerusalem to American archeologists. My childhood summers consisted of free-range exploring all over my parent’s dig in the southern part of Israel. We lived in tents and ate in a mess hall tent next to an old bus, converted into a kitchen. I was the kid who had the job of handing out the mail from the co-eds’ boyfriends and girlfriends back home. I loved this important role of delivering happiness to each person.

The 70s

The 80s

I spent my middle childhood involved in a neighborhood club called “Tigbearabbit”. We were a club of 3 neighbor kids and we were very serious about making things legit. We built a clubhouse and had regular meetings with typed up minutes (on a dot-matrix printer!). We put on performances and events and had a small treasury of nine whole dollars. I was the president of the club and poured myself completely into getting organized, and bringing the neighborhood together as a community around our events.

The 80s

The 90s

High School was all about theatre performance and marketing-style photography.  University was all about studying media arts…how to I get my message across using visual tools. I was especially curious about ethnographic documentary video. I became aware of how I easily relate to people all over the world.  I even made a personal diary video about it.

The 90s

2000s

I opened my first business called “Circa”.  It was a 50s modern vintage store with cool space age furniture and housewares plus local art. I loved being an entrepreneur. I loved meeting people all over the city at estate sales.  I loved serving the world by following my passion.

2000s

The last 20 years

 

Honestly, much of this is a blur. I met the love of my life and got married. I woke up one day with debilitating peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet. After hospital stays and tons of medical testing with no clear answers, I turned to holistic health modalities and discovered I had Celiac Disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  From there, I dove deep into learning everything I could about holistic nutrition. I got my health back and gave birth to two beautiful boys. I worked as an Associate Director running the business side of a gentle, play-based Preschool & Kindergarten.

The last 20 years

And then the nudge….(have you had that experience?)

My brain cleared, post-illness, and post-baby fog.

There was something that was mine to do in this world.

One day I saw an add in my Gmail account for a nutrition school. I had an ah-ha moment.

I became a Nutritional Therapist and have been working as a expert, coach, speaker and teacher in the holistic health field for 5 years. I am SO passionate about this field for so many reasons.

Then the nudge again…

I took a leap of faith and jumped into a leadership academy. Over 6 intense months I uncovered some major obstacles in my way. (Spoiler alert, they were ALL my own self-limiting beliefs!)

And it brought me HERE— to my Zone of Genius which is…coaching YOU, the heart-centered, holistic entrepreneur to discover YOUR Zone of Genius.
