Karen Speerstra

What is your role in the Powers of Place Initiative?
Given my history of writing and publishing, I'm writing, editing and generally being a "supportive thought partner" in our collaborative endeavors.

Where do you have most passion in this endeavor?
I remain passionate about writing. And helping others in their writing pursuits. I enjoy posting original pieces to the companion Our Luminous Ground site as well as using my energies to continue my inquiries into "what makes sacred spaces sacred?"
