In this episode, Karen shares her journey following the overdose that led to her son’s death and how it transformed her own path to growth and spirituality.
Judge Johnson is a Georgetown Law Center (J.D.) graduate, a former Fulbright Scholar in Afghanistan, and holds master’s degrees in public health and Public and International Affairs (MPH, MPIA). Karen is a retired federal administrative law judge who has practiced criminal and energy law for more than 30 years. She also is a former U.S. Army officer, Major, USAR.
Karen is also a grieving parent of a son, forever 27 years old, who is now trained extensively in the techniques of Illumination, Soul Retrieval, Extractions of Energies and Entities, Divination, and Death Rites. Personally trained by Alberto Villoldo, Karen is faculty at the Four Winds Society and a Master Practitioner of Energy Medicine, and the author of Living Grieving: Using Energy Medicine to Alchemize Grief and Loss.
Karen writes, “You may be feeling stuck in your grief and wondering why you can’t seem to get over it. I felt the same way until I realized we do not get over grief. It’s not like catching the flu; we aren’t sick. There is no cure, and we can’t medicate it away. Instead, grief is a state of being that carries energy that you can tap into to create a new life. Just as we use the energy of other newly acquired states of being like marriage or parenthood to transform our lives, we can likewise use the energy of grieving to transform.”
