With the Holidays over, many people are left to cope with their magnified feelings of grief and loss of a loved one, a beloved pet, a job that no longer exists, loss of income, a home, and even a loss of self. According to The Atlantic 72% of Americans say that they know someone who has died or hospitalized due to COVID, making 6.6 million Americans could be effected by bereavement. A recent study by UCLA indicates how Americans are suffering Psychological Distress from a job loss.
Tune into The Original Loretta Brown Show, Thursday, Jan 20th at 8 a.m. (repeats Monday at 6 a.m.), as your host interviews a fascinating woman who turned a personal tragedy into a lifelong journey of self discovery.
Karen V. Johnson’s fast-paced professional career as a lifetime appointed Federal Judge came to an abrupt halt when she lost her 27 year-old son to a heroin overdose. Rather than grieve in a way that made people around her comfortable, she did the unexpected. She quit her job, sold her house with all her belongings, and went on a 2½ year journey that took her all over the world, finding a healing practice along the way.
Karen didn’t think she could ever find her way out of despair, but she found a process that works and shares the journey of transformation with others so they can heal too.

Loretta Brown, owner of Reiki Oasis, has been practicing and teaching Reiki Energy Medicine, sound healing, intuitive Guidance, past life regression, meditation and psychic development since 1995. Born as a sensitive, Loretta always felt at home among the concepts of angels, spirits, fairies, energies, vibration, sound, music, devas, goddesses and God. However, it took years for her to understand not everyone had these gifts, and to figure out how to use them to help others navigate their lives in a more positive way. Now, she is dedicated to helping everyone discover their own gifts, resonate from the very center of their Being and live the joy-filled life they were meant to live. Loretta has traveled the world extensively, teaching and performing internationally, has studied with great spiritual teachers, and has spent years chanting, searching for truths, visiting sacred sites and learning the great mysteries. Her joy is sharing as a Teacher, Channel and Healer so you can renew, refresh, and re-member who you really are and why you are on the planet at this time.
