Welcome to the World Transformation Movement (WTM) Canada Central Centre.

My name is Karen Riley and in 2017  I read a review from world-renowned fellow Canadian, Professor Harry Prosen, praising a book so highly as ‘the greatest book of all time’. That book turned out to be FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition by Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith. After reading this incredible book I too came to the conclusion that its profound biological understanding of our species really does resolve our psychologically troubled human condition.

Dr Karen Riley, BScPhm, PharmD, is a clinical assistant professor in the US and a practicing clinical pharmacist in Canada with over 36 years’ experience in hospital, community and consulting pharmacy practice.

FREEDOM is an exhilarating, redeeming, empowering and transforming piece of work. It inspired me to open this Centre which I hope will become a home for Canadians in the central provinces to come and share and participate in these astonishing insights that I believe can save the world.

I am the mother of three wonderful children and five amazing grandchildren. I currently own my own business as a consultant pharmacist providing medication therapy management services. In addition to my practice of patient care, I have also been a university professor, teaching pharmacy for the last 15 years.

Since high school I was always looking for the truth in life based on science, and although I was taught that science was the study of the body, and religion the study of the mind, I knew that the truth had to be able to reconcile science with religion and spirituality.

FREEDOM - The Manual to Life

Cover of FREEDOM:The End of the Human Condition available from the World Transformation Movement

I think FREEDOM is best described as a manual to life which really sits well for me because it's the ultimate brain food for humans. Life went from feeling bewildering and confusing to something that was clearly transparent—I am now able to understand and see through all the behavior around me. I see the human condition is driving all of our behavior whether it be individual behavior or cultural, country, civilisations, religion, politics, men and women—absolutely everything! So life has become even more exciting for me!

I found one of the most interesting and simplest perspectives on the profundity of this information was delivered by Tony Gowing, who is one of the founding members of the World Transformation Movement, in this video (video 5 from the WTM homepage.)

I know from my experience in healthcare that one of the most effective tools is to tell my patients a story and Tony’s story demonstrates how understanding a situation can completely change your behavior. It shows how anger can change to relief and calmness. It demonstrates that understanding enables you to stop being a victim of situations… and understanding the human condition is much, much, much bigger than this little story!

So I hope this website inspires more people in Central Canada to learn about these phenomenal scientific insights that allow us to immediately know that fundamentally we're good and not bad. We can legitimately decide not to think about and live in accordance with the upset within us. We can simply leave our old ways of feeling and thinking behind and adopt a simple and new way of thinking and feeling that's in support of a reconciled non-aggressive, non-competitive and truth-based world for humans.

Please visit the World Transformation Movement website and watch the introductory videos at the top of the homepage — specifically videos 1-4 and 14, because they provide a concise summary of the key understandings of the human condition that make possible the transformation of all humans from a human-condition-stricken existence to a fabulous life free from that agony.

WTM Global Centres

Alongside the original WTM Centre in Sydney, Australia, World Transformation Movement Centres are being established around the world to help bring to everyone the now desperately needed all-relieving and all-explaining biological understanding of the underlying issue in all of human life of our troubled human condition.
