REV. CONSTANCE McCLAIN, founder
Avid athlete. Fitness professional. College professor. Recovering multiple stroke patient. Celebrating Spirit in all living things. Embracing unity amidst diversity, and promoting an open-hearted life, by example … in the midst of a world in tremendous distress.
Reverend Constance McClain is a lifelong spiritual seeker. Along that path, she became a spiritual mentor through the Claritas Institute of Spiritual Mentoring & Inquiry, a program designed and brought to life by Joan Borysenko. Furthering her dream of becoming a minister, she is a graduate of The Spiritual Paths Institute of InterSpirituality in Santa Barbara, California.
Her love of dance, hiking and helping others prompted her to become certified as a Master Exercise Specialist through the Cooper Institute in Dallas, TX, where she then became a specialist in Somatic Education with a primary focus on integrated movement … designed to guide students and clients into an embodied awareness of the Inner Spirit within.
From her tenure as Personal Fitness Program Director at UCSB, to her current work with students at Ventura College in Spirituality as a critical dimension of health … Constance has been a lifelong advocate of a humanity that is aware of all of its potential, using all of its dimensions of wellness.
A completely unexpected near death experience in 2013 brought her an increased sense of urgency to to become more deeply in service … and in 2017, her enduring dream of ministry was fulfilled, and she was ordained as an InterFaith/ Interspiritual minister through the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary.
Today, Constance has an unwavering perspective: that her love of life, all things sacred, holy and divine continue to support her through even the most life-changing of adversities, and it is being mindful of this spiritual dimension of health that is at the very core of her new book, Mindful Paths: Steps Towards a Living Spirituality.
Constance has spend a lifetime educating thousands, from ages 3 to 93, in the benefits of optimizing both spiritual and somatic wellness. By integrating all of the dimensions of health into one cohesive, mindful and healthy whole. Enjoy all of that experience on an individualized, or small group basis.
