A dynamic creative force, Karla Dascal is a Miami native whose artistic vision and quest for elegance began in 1992. Karla first opened Roses by Karla Inc., which produced unique, architecturally inspired floral concepts for residences and businesses in South Florida. After developing a large following, Dascal went on to redefine special events with the creation of Karla Conceptual Event Experiences, one of the most celebrated full-service event planning and design production companies in the country. Recognized as leader in the industry, Biz Bash named Karla one of its top 35 event designers. And twenty years since Karla Events' inception, private and corporate clients continue to depend on Dascal for expertly crafted events and her signature conceptual approach to celebration.
Unfortunately her dazzling success began to take its toll and, in 2005, compounding health concerns caused Karla to seriously re-evaluate her priorities. With characteristic boldness she faced the ultimate — a fear for her own life ~ as the spiritual challenge it was, and through tireless self-inquiry, study and a prophetic group of healers/teachers, she birthed the opportunity for the sacred in her life.
Conquering diabetes and obesity might have been enough for some. However for Karla, once the doors of liberation were open, there was no longer room for any other excuse or apology, no other path than living life to the fullest. The alignment that ensued of health, business, family and spirit inspired Karla deeply. Her mission became clear and the seeds of The Sacred Space Miami were sown.
Encouraged at a young age with the vision and generosity that comes from being raised in a philanthropic family, Karla has long been active in many charities in Miami with her love of children and animals at the forefront. She sits on many boards including The Guardian Angels at Jackson Memorial Hospital as well as The Humane Society of Miami. In addition she is a holistic living student of many mind-body-spirit modalities including the Aruyevedic tradition and Aromatherapy. She recently completed a 90 day Aquarian Sadhana commitment via Kundalini Yoga Miami.
