Over the years, I’ve discovered that relationships have deepened and profound insights have occurred through conversations that have taken place while walking with friends, family members, or alone in prayerful meditation.
These experiences are the inspiration behind the name Reah Ministry. “Reah” is a Hebrew word for friend or companion. Over the year, my list of companions has expanded beyond anything I ever imagined. I now recognize that spirituality is what I call the “common denominator” among all people. When we share our personal experiences of encounters with the Holy, when we look inward to the Divine Light that dwells within each of us, and when we explore the landscape of our soul, we find that while each person has their own unique language and experience, we paradoxically share in the same journey toward union with the Sacred One.
