Dr. Karen Wyatt: 

"We can discover what really matters in our own lives and begin to fulfill our potential and purpose right now, without waiting until our last breaths. This is the gift left behind by those who have already passed on before us: the knowledge that there is hope for negotiating the dangerous waters of suffering. There is a way through the darkness of illness and loss and it leads to ultimate transformation!"

Carew Papritz

Author of The Legacy Letters:

"It has been a long time since I have been as deeply moved by someone's deep and personal life experiences, ensconced in the most beautiful of writing,  and wrapped in sheer spirituality, as I have been by reading your book [What Really Matters].  …  Reading between tears and wonder. Feeling as if I was having a “hollyhock” experience.”


Marilyn Schlitz, PhD,

Ira Byock, MD, author of Dying Well and The Best Care Possible:

"Dr. Karen Wyatt practices medicine as she lives – with courage, humility and an open heart. In caring for people who are nearing life’s end, she finds essential truths and reveals What Really Matters. The lessons she offers are a gift of enormous wisdom."

Eldon Taylor, PhD, FAPA

Choices and Illusions:

"Throughout history a few special minds have reminded us of the most important matters in life.  For Plato it was the cardinal virtues, for Kant it was the challenge to know, Mill obsessed over liberty and individuality, the value of symbols occupied the meaning of life for Lame Deer, and for Gandhi, it was the value of truth.  There are many other great thinkers and today we can add one more.  Dr. Karen Wyatt brings the relevance of everyday life to the meaning of life.  Through her hospice work, Dr. Wyatt has shared the moment of crossing over with many, including a very special caring lady—her Mother. 


In her book, What Really Matters, Karen meets the reader with a warm and gentle awareness—one that reminds us of the inevitable moment when we breathe our last breath.  The meaning and importance of the transition period from life to death is all too often overlooked, and as a result, we spend our lives denying the steady steps of death.  As Walt Whitman said, 'Though our hearts are stout and brave, still like distant drums they’re beating funeral marches to the grave.'

Karen’s approach to preparing for one of the most important days of our lives is very real, and it turns out that this preparedness gives rise to miracles that we may have otherwise missed in our everyday life.  There is a glorious finitude to our human existence in this time and space, and Karen catches this mystery while inspiring all to live more fully every day!  I urge you to read What Really Matters!"
