Welcome to Consciousness Explored. This show dives deep into topics like the relationship between the brain and consciousness, ways to expand our consciousness, and the impact that our understanding of consciousness has on our daily lives.

“The body is so intelligent. It is the most incredible piece of technology we will ever own in our whole entire lives, but we don’t really know anything about it.”

— Karen Maloney

Karen Maloney is a breathwork and mindset coach who helps people to wake up to their power, master their inner world & manifest their dreams. She is trained in many modalities including Somatic Breathwork, Silent Counseling, Reiki, and Integrated Energy Therapy. She is also the founder and host of the Curiosity & Consciousness podcast.

Karen is also known as the “INSIDE OUT Coach” because she believes that all change must start from within. She is passionate about helping people to shift self-doubt, believe in themselves more, and take responsibility for their lives. She helps clients to uncover and transform the subconscious beliefs that are sabotaging their desires. She believes the relationship we have with ourselves is key to everything. When we shift this on the inside, it is expressed in our external world.

From her own journey, Karen knows what’s possible for us when we do the inner work and transform how we think, feel, and what we believe about ourselves. Everyone has experienced challenges, but our healing and wellbeing is our responsibility — we owe it to ourselves!

Karen enthusiastically helps people to embrace this journey, and love both themselves and their life again. It’s not always comfortable work, but it is the most powerful work a person can do.
