Kara Roberston Gordon was born in Santa Fe, NM in 1980. She was raised in the Science of Mind philosophy. Her grandmother was a practitioner, her mother was a practitioner and her great grandmother was a member of the Santa Fe Church of Religious Science as it was known back then. Kara lived in Santa Fe her entire adolescent life. As a young teenager she began to party a lot and slowly fell into drug addiction. She lived in addiction for many years, becoming homeless, living under bridges, in parks and then finally in a tent in the foothills in Santa Fe. In 2007 she made a decision to change her life, and slowly climbed out of drug addiction. She went to college and received her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting. She then went on to get her Master’s in Business Administration or MBA. She works at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a financial analyst. She is currently in her first term of Prac 2 with Centers for Spiritual Living. Being a practitioner is something that Kara has wanted for decades, and is truly a dream come true. After Practitioner training Kara hopes to pursue her ministerial credentials within Center for Spiritual Living if that is still what she feels called to do. Kara lives a very full life being of service in the twelve-step program that saved her life and deepening her authenticity through education and community in Centers for Spiritual Living.
