Biographical Information

Karen Muktayani “Muki” Villanueva, RN, BSN is the current Director of Practice at the Center for Transformative Change. "She graduated from Humboldt State University, with a baccalaureate degree in Nursing and a minor degree in Studio Art. As an emergency and critical care RN, Muki has practiced in a number health care settings including ball parks, homeless clinics, airplanes, and prisons. Her social justice work has included working with and advocating for at-risk populations, those that traditionally have less access to health care, and those clients that are likely to ‘fall through the cracks.’

"As CXC’s Director of Practice, Muki acts as an exemplar of deep practice, a dedicated practitioner whose outer justice work is unequivocally influenced directly by her inner justice work and years of service in the New Dharma Community. Muki has a keen interest in supporting folks towards their own healing, their own wholeness, their own freedom, and considers it an absolute (and intimate) privilege and honor to witness and encourage transformation and the transformative process, up close and personal.

"Muki is one of the trainers in fearlessMeditation, a certified and registered fearlessYoga Teacher, and a regular contributor to transform. She stewards the 27 Days of Change Practice Periods and is currently studying Conscious Embodiment with Wendy Palmer, a body of work that she is looking forward to making available to nurses and social justice activists."
