Mary Ann Ruth - Certified Spiritual Counselor, Facilitator, and Minister

Spiritual Counseling and Coaching, Workshops, Retreats and Ministerial Services

Mother Teresa said that a poverty of spirit can co-exist even among the wealthiest people on earth. How is your spiritual abundance? What about your "bank balance" and daily "cash flow" of joy, peace, trust, and ease? Are you moving toward your dreams with courage? Are you finding blocks on your path?

I work with you to help you align with your Source and remember who you are as an eternally beloved child of the Creator, already one with God. You can learn to join with this indwelling and infinite Power, hear God's voice and receive guidance for inspired action. As we work together, you are reminded that God is Love and your Essence is Love.
