Ministerial Council

Reverend Sherry Wynne

I have been in the New Thought movement for more than 40 years. I had numerous experiences with the non-material world since early childhood leaving me with many unanswered questions. So began a lifetime inquiry into consciousness and my relationship to the Divine. In the late 70’s I was introduced to Paramahansa Yoganandas teachings and The Self Realization Fellowship. In 1980 I found Religious Science and the next step in my own personal evolution. The education I received through Religious Science was extraordinary and helped me understand my relationship to the inner and outer world in a profound way. I received my Practitioner RSCP License and Certificate of Ordination as a Minister through Emerson Theological Institute.

I’m certified in the third degree of Reiki and am a Trager Practitioner through The Trager Institute for Psychophysical Integration and Mentastics. Developing my intuitional nature has supported my purpose which is: To be in service to the Holy One in all Life.

It’s been my joy to be in service to help create two Spiritual Communities that are collaborative rather than led by a single Minister. I love to teach, speak, lead seminars and to serve. I know it takes a village to support the high ideals we hold and it’s an honor to be part of The Amani Center.

Reverend Belinda Owens, RScP, SLC

I have participated in this beautiful, beloved Center, from which the Amani Center evolved, for over 20 years. I am an Ordained Interfaith Minister, having received my Bachelors of Religious Studies and Ministerial Credential from the Emerson Theological Institute. In addition, I am a Religious Science certified Practitioner, Spiritual Life Coach, Certified Meditation teacher and I head up the Circle of Light Practitioners group.

My passion however is teaching the Advanced Curriculum courses here at the Amani Center; cultivating a knowingness of the Divine within you and assisting you on your Spiritual journey. How may I serve you?
