Rev. Michelle Wadleigh
Rev. Michelle Wadleigh is the founding Spiritual Director of the Center for Spiritual Living North Jersey, a New Thought and Metaphysical community dedicated to inspiring and empowering individuals to live a fully expressed life while developing a deep and profound relationship with God, and live a highly responsible life. She is a minister, speaker, author of four books, and a wonderful workshop and retreat facilitator. She currently serves as a member of the Leadership Council for Centers for Spiritual Living and has also served on the Diversity Commission, Clergy and Minister Council and a variety of Educational sub-committees.
Michelle is a powerful teacher and leader who helps cultivate individuals to be conscious leaders. Her focus is on teaching others how to live full and potent lives grounded in high integrity and authenticity. To support this Rev. Michelle has developed numerous programs specifically for Licensed Practitioners focused on their own emotional health and in increasing their inquiry skills as practitioners.
She has dedicated much of her life to teaching individuals how to live in Peace, sponsoring Peace Vigils, and has created a new program encouraging regular citizens to be part of the Peace Movement in their own homes. Her peace salons were inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr.’s quote, “Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war.” Peace in our world begins first with our own healing because a healed and whole person will always be less likely to harm another. It is for this reason that Rev. Michelle is devoted to teaching wholeness and then inspiring others to act from that wholeness. In addition to her passion for Peace and developing conscious leaders she is a potent facilitator for transformation, working both in groups and individually.
In 2016, Michelle was honored with the Shirley Chisolm Award, for clergy in the state of New Jersey. Rev. Michelle is one who cares, and cares enough to do more, to show up more, and to encourage others to show up and take a stand for high values like: peace, compassion, kindness, and integrity.
Rev. Michelle is a dedicated wife, mother of three sons and a grandmother of two. She shows up for her family with equal commitment as she does for her spiritual community.
