Women Empowering Women | Life, Death, Bellydancing and Godzilla

Special to the Sun

Christine Karnofsky will be speak about the cycles of life and death, joy, passion, the connection of body to spirit, the illusion of the power of fear and loss and our true natures on Monday, Aug. 4, 10 a.m.-noon at For Goodness Sake in Truckee.

What happens when we think about dying? Are we living our life or just repeating our daily routine? What keeps us from doing the things that give us joy? How can we honor the cycles of our lives and be enriched? How can fear actually help us move on?

These are questions we may ask ourselves to be fully alive.

Christine, a Tahoe resident since 1987, began her career as a landscape designer in the Bay Area in 1985. She received her education in art and landscape architecture from the College of San Mateo and University of Nevada, Reno. She apprenticed with the internationally known landscape architect and published author James Chadwick.
