Finding Zeni Is about Discovering Your Authentic Self

Be the authentic person God intended you to be, not the person others want, need, or expect you to be.

Nikki Karis

Finding Zeni, Inc. is the inspirational company of author and inspiring speaker, Nikki Karis, an idea Karis first gave birth to in 2008, a year after her father passed away, and she began the most crucial part of her journey of awakening which lasted until January 14, 2020. It is also her publishing house, born from her book series, Escape the Swamp.

Through her various creative and inspiring endeavors, including her Escape the Swamp, GodDogs, and Becoming Grace book series, T1 Rise – social activism site, Karis Brands – merchandise site, Zenilution – virtual theme-park site, and Tailzee – social network platform, Karis seeks to empower people from around the globe to break free of their limitations and become the person authentic God intended them to be.

In the Escape the Swamp series, Zeni, the protagonist, narrates a theme-park adventure ride, recounting the tales of her escapades to find Prince Charming, only to be met by a swamp filled with toads. During her adventures, Zeni unearths some life-altering wisdom which changes her perception of life, love, relationships, and most importantly, herself. Armed with this invaluable knowledge, Zeni undergoes a spiritual metamorphosis, rises in her empowerment, and successfully escapes the swamp, becoming the hero of her very own fairy tale. Zeni also serves as the narrator for Zenilution where readers can connect to Keep Gigging, Zeni Says, I am Zeni, and Fairy Tails Rock, all virtual rides contained within the theme-park. A line of inspiring video games, Toadily Games, is also in the works.
