About Rev Pat

About Rev. Pat  I’m just like you: a spiritual being having a physical experience, following my bliss in this lifetime.

I’m a graduate of Unity Institute & Seminary, where I set my sights on learning all I could about the evolution of consciousness. I was ordained by Unity Worldwide Ministries in 2012. I’m founder of New Vista Learning Center, and adjunct faculty for Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute. My ministry is teaching: helping people awaken to the spiritual truth that they are beloved, precious and evolving.

I’m a mother and grandmother, a friend, a sister. I’m a life long learner. I’m a college graduate. I was a school teacher for 18 years, teaching pre-adolescents. I served as a church minister for a while until I created this online spiritual education ministry, which gives me great happiness!  I’m a former Calvinist Christian. Today I’d label myself as a New Thought/Integral practitioner.

I’m a woman who woke up in her mid-40’s to realize that she had the right to think, feel and dream for herself.  I’m an adult who is learning that it’s okay to take risks and step out in faith.

I am committed to being relevant, accessible and honest with the seeker of the 21st Century. I offer a thriving spiritual online learning center where together we can grow in self-awareness and self-esteem, where we can fully embrace being spiritual beings having a human experience.

Unity Institute & Seminary ‘s Masters of Divinity program offered me a priceless opportunity to allow my mind and heart expand to transcend and include my old embedded theology.  I am grateful to the Unity movement, founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore over 125 years ago!

Daily, I practice being heart-centered, and I am also a keen thinker and an effective facilitator, who  provides a safe and comfortable atmosphere for personal sharing and exciting theological conversations.

I utilize various teaching methods to present materials. I am responsive to the tone and pace of the group, and I create a sense of stimulation as well as a circle safety for you to feel comfortable asking the tough questions or sharing something aloud that will help you move through a block.

I believe that transformation takes more than a couple Sunday sermons per month, and the classroom setting of no more than 10 people is an effective way to facilitate lasting transformation.

There are two phrases that echo in my mind as I walk through this life: Teilhard’s  “I am a spiritual being having a physical experience.”  I hope that through these musings, you’ll begin to see that you, too, are a spiritual being having a physical experience. And Joseph Campbell’s “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you.” I believe that, but first they have to find their bliss!  I believe that continued self-awareness practices will help you find your bliss. The Unity SEE courses I teach, along with my personal touch, are designed to help you do just that.
