My name is Kari Browning and I’m the visionary of New Renaissance. I have a BIG vision to help people find rest for their souls and health for their bodies.

We all have a purpose and are creative, and we will only find true fulfillment when we are doing what we were created to do. Many are allowing toxic emotions such as shame, fear, bitterness and guilt, along with limiting core beliefs, to hinder them from being all they were created to be.

The reason I’m so passionate about seeing people set free is that I had a painful childhood and for years I suffered with low self-worth, broken relationships, and intense emotional pain. I’ve been on a journey of healing for over 30 years and have finally come into a place of peace, joy, and rest. I’m doing work that I love and that I was created to do. I want to help others experience the joy of what has taken me so many years to achieve.

My journey of healing has taken me into the world of quantum physics and energy healing. I was introduced to a technique in 2012 that accelerated my own healing process. What had taken years in the past was now being accomplished in a matter of a few hours. I started practicing this technique with people and saw amazing breakthroughs in a relatively short period of time.

As a faith-based practitioner, I believe all healing flows from our Creator and I’m so grateful to be a vessel that He can use to bring hope and healing to the world. It’s our time to Shine!


I met the love of my life in 1980 and we were married shortly thereafter. We have four grown children and six grandchildren. We left our families and the house we had built in Yakima, Washington, and moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, after very clear direction to do so. We live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and we are definitely grateful that God called us here.

Mike and I are both licensed ministers. Over the years, we’ve planted churches, established an accredited bible college, and a regional training center. We also established a Reggio-inspired preschool.

We’ve hosted several conferences over the years. I have made many national and international trips and have spoken at numerous conferences.

Today, I’m living the life of my dreams. I am an author, a sought-after conference speaker, and personal mentor who helps others fulfill their destinies. I get to work alongside amazing people who challenge me and inspire me. I do personal appointments with people to help them release toxic emotions and I’ve developed an online certification course to train and equip others in the technique I use.

New Renaissance hosts wellness retreats, personal wellness intensives, and seminars on health and wellness and creativity.


Vive la Renaissance!

We are in the time of a “new renaissance.” A definition of Renaissance is: “a reawakening in the world of art and learning.”

The Renaissance began in Florence, Italy, in the 14th century and ended in the 1700’s. During that time, there was an explosion in the arts and science, the Protestant Reformation began, and the New World was discovered.

In the 1800’s, a Catholic priest by the name of Father Ravalli came from Italy to the Coeur d’Alene area to start a “new renaissance.” He was an artist, a builder, and a healer. He traveled miles to heal both body and soul of anyone who needed help.

Imagine my surprise when I learned about Father Ravalli after we chose to change the name of our ministry to “New Renaissance” in 2010. I believe “the land remembers” and we are carrying on Father Ravalli’s vision of seeing a “new renaissance” spring up in the Coeur d’Alene area.


“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”   ~ Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
