In Holy Territory: Girls for the World with Karen Hanson

Karen Hanson is the founder and executive director of Girls for the World. Girls for the World is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the growth, development, and empowerment of girls. From the most impoverished to the wealthiest, girls need to find their power and become forces for change in the world. She works with women to develop their intuition, connect with their inner guidance, and create a passionate spiritual and powerful life. Karen travels the world to help young women find their voice. She’s conducted successful workshops and programs in Africa, Haiti, India, Peru and the United States.
