Rev. Bonnie J. Berger
Services Offered: Wedding Officiant; Life-Cycle Ceremonies; Spiritual Coaching; Pet-Loss Support.
Bio: I have been on a spiritual path all of my life. Recognizing and believing in the innate worth and sacredness that exists within each of us, my initial efforts were directed towards the raising up of battered women and all women. While working as a staff member at a national women's organization, I began to "connect the dots" between all of the civil rights movements. For the next 20 years I devoted myself to building bridges of understanding and acceptance between diverse communities. My consulting firm reached thousands of people and helped scores of organizations address some of their most challenging diversity issues.

In addition to my business, I was very committed to securing equal rights in my community. I served as co-chair for the Free State Justice Campaign, which was the predecessor organization to Equality Maryland. Humbly, in March 2001, I was one of twenty county residents honored by being inducted into the Montgomery County Human Rights Hall of Fame.

Accepted as a student at the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development, I began studying under founder and director Iyanla Vanzant in 2003. Following this two year odyssey and time of personal growth and discovery, I was called to attend The New Seminary in New York City as an accelerated student, culminating with my June 2006 ordination as an Interfaith Minister.

As a Wedding Officiant and Interfaith Minister I continue to "connect the dots" between all people of faith (or those who choose not to have a faith path), one person at a time, with patience, openness, and true caring. I maintain a vision of love, purpose, and compassion.

Bio: Laura Derr is a psychologist who has been in clinical practice in the Boston area for 30 years. She received ordination as an Interfaith Minister through All Faiths Seminary International in 2016. She started her career as a music therapist and then earned her doctorate with a specialty in child and family therapy. The practice of Buddhism has been woven into her psychological practice since attending her first retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh while still in grad school. Twenty years of meditation practice, including receiving ordination as a lay member of the community, laid a strong foundation for understanding A Course in Miracles. On first reading the Course ten years ago, it was instantly clear to her that Jesus was her teacher and that his Course was the connecting link between her Christian childhood and adult Buddhist practice. She has also studied his teachings in The Way of Mastery and has been on pilgrimage to Israel and Southern France with that community. More recently, she has gone through the intimate experience of his teachings in A Course of Love. Through her practice with these modern teachings of Jesus, she learned she has a clear intuitive gift which continues to evolve in richness. She received ministerial ordination to open more avenues for sharing this gift of healing. She has been drawn to the deeper meanings of the original Aramaic Lord’s Prayer and Beatitudes, which she has set to music. She has begun leading healing workshops using these teachings, joining her clinical and spiritual paths.

Bio: Rev. Linda offers Ministry, Mentoring and Music.

Ministry: 20 years of facilitating small group ministry gatherings and/or leading worship in Unitarian Universalist congregations.

Mentoring: Having traveled a spiritual path that wound through Christian churches, Buddhist sittings with Thich Nhat Hanh, Hindu ashrams, Wiccan rituals, Sikh dances, Hebrew ceremonies and Native American circles, Rev. Linda finally landed in interfaith ministry at the age of 69. Now established in her own practice of spiritual mentoring, she is able to draw from all these traditions to glean the best practices to guide the individual on their own path to finding and clearing what may be preventing them from fulfilling their sacred contract to serve the greatest good.

Music: Rev. Linda appears as a vocalist on 16 of the celebrated "On Wings of Song" World Chant Series recordings led by Robert Gass and on Goddess Chant by Shawna Carol. She has directed an interfaith community choir and is currently a music minister and choir director at Tree of Life Interfaith Temple.

Animal Chaplain/Minister - Pet blessings; Pre-bereavement and Bereavement Support, Bach Flower Remedy information, Celebration of Life
Services Provided To: All
Bio: Ordained at the New Seminary in 1994. Throughout the years I have been active in hospice facilities, as well as Cancer Care, as a patient volunteer, as a speaker, and as a pastoral care volunteer. I originally focused my ministry on families who were coping with life-threatening illnesses, utilizing skills that I had learned through certification training: hypnotism and Bach Flower Remedies. Later I began expanding my ministerial duties to include baptisms, funerals/celebrations of life, weddings. At around 2009 I went to Alamance Community College, where I received various certifications in animal care and management. Once my courses were completed I began to offer, along with my fellow colleagues, a bereavement support group, to help cope with the impending loss, or loss of pet/companion. As of the present day, most of my time is divided up among volunteering with our local animal shelter, and performing weddings, with any of the other typical ministerial duties that are required of a minister/chaplain.

Groups Provided To: The public.
Bio: Robert "Bud" James, PhD is the founder of Deep Memory Recovery, a Spiritual Counseling organization dedicated to offering inspiring and transformational educational experiences based on the PAUSE Model. Bud is Co-Director and Co-Instructor for New Vistas International™, a training organization dedicated to offering inspiring and transformational educational experiences based on the PAUSE Model.
The acronym PAUSE defines five essential resource states that chart a Path to Wholeness through deeper levels of embodiment, personal awareness, physiological balance, spiritual guidance, and fulfillment.
Bud is the co-author of underlying principles of the PAUSE Model of Spiritual Counseling™, and co-author of the upcoming books, Mastering the Therapeutic Process™, Allowing the Magic™, and PAUSE: The Prayer That Needs No Answer™.

Bud is a graduate of All Faiths Seminary International (AFSI), is an ordained Interfaith Minister, holds a Master of Divinity, and Doctorate of Spiritual Counseling. He is a Hypnotherapy Instructor (HI) and Hypnotist Examiner (HE) as well as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, certified by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and a Master Neuro-Linguistic Psychology Practitioner and Instructor, as certified by New Vistas International™. Bud has advanced Toastmaster credentials (ATM, CL), as well as being a motivational speaker and instructor for Delta-4, a highly regarded organization of primarily ex-military trainers who teach managers how to become successful leaders. He is a certified Enneagram Coach and Trainer.

As both a student and teacher of A Course in Miracles for over 25 years, Bud has based the core of his personal and professional work on the teachings of the Course.

I feel one of the biggest challenges facing humanity is the illusion of separation, which creates all pain, suffering, and victimhood. Learning that we all have the same basic goal in our lives - to give and receive Love - can greatly aid each of us in our physical, mental, and spiritual growth, and in the overall healing of our perspective of the world.

The PAUSE Model of Spiritual Counseling™ is the result of synthesizing the best of multiple therapeutic modalities using a Divinity-centric approach. PAUSE represents the distillation of Dr. Donna Hamilton and my life's work, and is based on removing the obstacles to the awareness of Love's endless presence, which is the birthright of everyone, everywhere.
Education: Bud is an ordained Interfaith Minister, holds a Master of Divinity, and Doctorate of Spiritual Counseling, all from All Faiths Seminary International (AFSI).
He also has a Bachelors of Computer Information Systems from Alameda University.
