Karen Darke

Something I forgot to speak about…. Karen Darke is currently on a lecture tour, Birnham Arts Cenre 23APR, and I have to admit that I didn’t know who she was until recently. Karen had a climbing accident when she was 21 and was paralysed from the chest down. Since then, she has completed some amazing adventures and is a true testimony to human endeavour, I can’t wait to hear what she has to say!! www.karendarke.com

“Karen Darke’s story is about the indomitability of spirit, from one of life’s cruel vagaries of fortune to what is insight and inspiration. She has overcome the limitations of paralysis and discovered a life of challenge and adventure that many of us only dream about. It is all about the mind, the spirit and the desire that some of us find, but which all of us possess.”
Joe Simpson, Mountaineer and Author – “Touching The Void”
