Welcome and thank you for being here.
Assisting people to understand the correlations between loss, change, living a fulfilling life, creating a team-dynamic workplace and profits, is what Karen and The Chaston Centre love to do.
When individuals embrace our concepts, they easily move beyond any kind of loss and create a better everyday life.

Karen Chaston is a business owner, beyond loss mentor and international keynote speaker who has shared the stage with Marianne Williamson, Jamie-Lee Curtis, Valerie Harper and Dr Ellie Drake.
She is the author of eight books and numerous e-books.
In her corporate career Karen was a C.P.A., a Chief Financial Officer of a publicly listed company and a senior manager for more than 25 years.
In July 2011, Karen’s life changed forever when her 27-year-old son, Dan, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away at her back door.
Within 15 months, Karen resigned from her CFO role and began a personal, professional and spiritual journey culminating in her becoming a beyond loss expert and co-founding her business:
Karen’s first-hand experience assisted in her creating The Chaston Centre’s retreats and programs (delivered physically and virtually) which demonstrate the correlations between people, loss and all areas of your life.
When individuals embrace these concepts, you will easily move beyond any kind of loss and create a better everyday life.
When companies embrace these concepts, they unlock the People and Profits Connection. Providing tangible solutions that will help them to challenges the status quo by asking “Is there room in the modern workplace to be more human?” Providing tangible solutions that will help them to make the best possible product, offer the best possible customer experience and build the strongest possible company.
As you may imagine, when Karen was a Chief Financial Officer of a Publicly Listed company, she never thought that she would ever write a book. She knew that one day she would like to write about her teenage years and her unexpected pregnancy at the age of 16, though never really thought that it would become a reality.
That book, was actually her third paperback “Teenagers Playing Grown-Ups” and she is the first to admit that it was better than she ever expected.
Please enjoy browsing through the four paperbacks, numerous e-books and her “Elements Collection Gratitude Journals.”
And as you’re doing so, remember “That if you think it, you can do it. Dream BIG.”
