SPECIAL SPEAKER/MUSIC PROGRAMS
Karie offers many diverse programs including several that were custom created for the AGNT "Seasons". She has successfully presented at numerous Unity and Centers for Spiritual Living as well as other AGNT and unaffiliated Spiritual Centers. (List of Venues)
Each special presentation is custom created for the needs and desires of the venue, taking into consideration things such as the monthly theme, comfort with interactive sharing, traditional format of service and desires of the board or minister for whom she is subbing.
As Karie is also a proficient musician, when requested she can cover all the music for the service at centers who don't have a staff music director, creating a cohesive program including additional music that supports the message. Her warmth, humor and ability to connect from the heart and share from her personal life experiences adds a special depth to her message.
"Living Peace" celebrates the agnt.org Season for Non Violence by exploring how we as individuals can show up as love, creating a positive energetic ripple effect in our world. Supported by the extraordinary musicianship of Chris Pinnick - guitar and Dwain Roque - percussion/vocals, Karie uses her personal experience and conscious pop music to inspire and motivate us.

Season for Peace
Karie Hillery's "Season for Peace and Nonviolence" (SPAN) program is inspired by AGNT's 64 days honoring Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi and Cesar Chavez. AGNT's Season for Non-violence running Jan 30th through April 4th, is an educational, media, and grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities.
This uplifting program combines original music, inspirational readings and spoken word. Karie's deep personal conviction to peace and her musical artistry help inspire us all to heed the message of these peace activists and "be the change you want to see in the world".
Karie's "Season for Peace" is an experience that will stay with you throughout the year.

Season for Humane Service
The AGNT Season for Humane Service has inspired a deeper look into what "sacred service" or "seva" really means.
Karie's program, combining spoken word, inspirational readings and original "conscious" music helps us more deeply embrace and understand the concept of true "giving" where both server and receiver are served. It explores how each of us as individuals can find our personal expression of service as active worldly and spiritual participants in the action of compassionate service.
