Sunni ("Sunny") Karll was conceived in Copenhagen, born in Paris and grew up in Maryland to parents in the American Military. Her own difficult birth propelled her into the field of birth as her life's mission: from wondering where trauma in a child comes from; to researching hundreds of babies and their births; to re-experiencing her own birth trauma and helping others do the same as a Past Life and Birth Therapist; and finally by becoming a home birth midwife where she felt she could help most. She realized unseen beings were at each birth, and was taught how to support a baby's essence to firmly take root in the body, while maintaining a coherent connection to its Soul self. She received her Doctorate from Sedona University through her dissertation on lovemaking and conception, her next book. She founded the Lancaster Waldorf School in 1977, Sacred Birthing Seminars in 1997, and Sacred Birthing Foundation in 2001. Sunni lives on the island of Kauai in a tiny house, and adores her sunrise walks on the beach.
