"The NEXUS team have had the privilege of working with the Place Of Dreams since 2021 and have witnessed first-hand the huge impact that their programmes have had on the lives of children and young people in Enfield. To date, Karen has delivered a range of bespoke assemblies, projects and programs to approximately 2500 children and young people across 6 secondary schools in Enfield. She has also had a significant impact on the lives of young women through the ‘The PEARLS Project’ – an empowerment programme carefully designed to transform the lives of teenage girls

The Place Of Dreams have also been very instrumental in the development of the NEXUS 325 Initiative, by creating an afterschool debate club provision called Use Your Voice. Use Your Voice was piloted in two secondary schools in 2022, engaging a total of 29 young people over a period of 10 weeks. Not only has this project succeeded in developing the oracy skills of the pupils who participated, it has developed their critical thinking skills as well as their confidence and communication by giving them a platform to express themselves in a safe space".

This life defining book authored by Karen Allen takes the reader on a journey of self reflection, self discovery and self love.  Written specifically but not exclusively for men, her mission is to edify, empower and encourage men everywhere to activate and cultivate the King within. 


As a mother of four sons, a sister, a daughter and trusted friend, Karen's heart for men is evident and unquestionable.  She is passionate and purposeful when it comes to speaking life into the lives of men who have been targeted, tainted and tormented throughout their lives, her desire is to see men set free to become everything God intended. 


 There is a bonus chapter in the book written especially for women who want to bring out the best in the men in their lives.

“I started to read your book and did not, or more precisely, could not put it down until I had finished it.  I had four hours of Karen personally reading to me, your voice, meaning your heart, soul, mind and spirit is amplified  in the book. An outstanding life changing book”
