Our Leadership

Four things comprise our leadership: our powerful and dynamic spiritual leader, Rev. Marla Mason, our caring staff, our committed board of trustees, and our core community members. We are all deeply dedicated to our own spiritual work and to the work of leading this Center toward fulfilling its Vision and Mission.
Rev. Marla Mason​


Rev. Marla joined our community as an Associate Minister in late 2016. Since then she has served with a passion for supporting people along the spiritual path. She came to ministry after a 25-year career as a corporate consultant and non-profit leader. Her background includes experience in organizational and leadership development, instructional design and facilitation and coaching, as well as social work and non-profit program management. She has maintained a private spiritual counseling and teaching practice since 2001 and served in several spiritual leadership roles since finishing her ministerial training in 2004. Described as “enthusiastic, spiritual, and a wonderful listener,” Rev. Marla is a gifted and dynamic speaker, teacher, and spiritual counselor.
