Karen Tlusty-Rissman is a musician, astrologer, artist, and meditation facilitator. Her deep care for the planet and all if its beings has translated into serving the community on many levels. Karen was an active participant of the Glenbard Acres Homeowners Association for many years, first as block captain, then secretary and served as president for 3 years. She continues to facilitate the Community Drum Circle and a private women's circle (both for 18 years) as well as facilitating aroma-sound and gong meditations, astrology classes and energetic attunement rituals at the Gathering Lighthouse and other locations around the western suburbs.

With the political climate being what it is, the role of the Gathering Lighthouse becomes even more important and it is her deepest desire to help the Center thrive.
