Meet the heart and soul and spirit and laughter that is our bakery staff. We love these guys! Each one has been drawn into our kitchen via our motto and philosophy of Enlightened Baking™. We believe the intentions of one’s heart and mind become infused with the food as it’s made. So we support and love each other and our products at every moment.
Enlightened Baking means we don’t do things the same old way. We are awakened to what it means to treat each other and ourselves with dignity and loving-kindness at every turn.
The vibration of the kitchen is high and it’s essential. No one person is in charge of the other. Everyone knows what needs to be done and everyone shares ideas. The goal is to get our products out there and change the way people think about vegan and gluten-free baking and cooking. We are erasing stereotypes and creating corrective experiences for everyone. One cupcake at a time. Each cupcake is important and made to perfection with love and the best intentions.
Celine is an artist, mother, meditator and now professional baker. She was raised to believe in magic and how to manifest the life you want. Baking has been her lifelong solace. A meditation in the kitchen. In 2005, she began her journey into the baking world of no eggs, wheat, butter or cream to help her neighbor’s daughter eat dessert. And it shifted her. She became acutely aware of her own karmic footprint and as a result, chose an animal free diet. Being plant-based, inspires and moves her to show the world there is another way to partake in its pleasures. Good food, desserts… These are things we are meant to enjoy. She’s letting everyone know – one cupcake at a time.
Arek grew up in a world of meditators, vegetarians and artists. His childhood practice of meditation led him to Maharishi University where his love of India and her secrets were nourished. He studied fine art, meditation, Ayurvedic science and business management. These experiences have culminated in his co-founding of Karma Baker, and becoming the heart of our wholesale business. He leads the bakery team with loving-kindness – teaching and supporting the staff to be their very best.
I don’t eat desserts often, but when I do I prefer the best vegan, gluten-free sweets available. I’m such a fan of Celine’s creativity that I partnered with The Karma Baker.
Eating plant-based didn’t just save Rich’s life – it gave him an entirely new one. Just 9 years ago Rich was a classic couch potato – overweight, overstressed, overworked. A health scare on the eve of his 40th birthday catalyzed a journey into healthy, plant-based foods and fitness that has led him to the man he is today: a world-renowned ultra-endurance athlete, motivational speaker, wellness advocate, #1 bestselling author and inspirational guide to a global audience of wellness seekers.
Inverting presumptions about middle age, Rich is a 2-time top finisher at the Ultraman World Championships and the first of two people to complete EPIC5 – a 703-mile adventure of, well, epic proportions that entailed completing 5 ironman-distance triathlons on 5 separate Hawaiian Islands in less than 7 days. Through his writing, public speaking and weekly podcast, Rich is devoted to educating and inspiring people the world over to discover, unlock and unleash their best, most authentic selves to live more vibrant, fulfilling lives. Rich (and his wife Julie’s) association with Karma Baker is simply a natural extension of his life’s mission to make healthy living and eating not only possible, but accessible to all.
