About Rebecca Ellen Augustine

Love ◊ Encourage ◊ Inspire

Why Should You Choose Me
to Love, Encourage, and Inspire You? 

I teach, minister, and live the practice of love without cause. Doing so allows me to reach out to anyone with compassion, encouragement, comfort and inspiration.

I bring a calm and gentle demeanor to all my professional interactions, providing a peaceful space where you can relax and know you are accepted, welcomed, and appreciated.

You will be heard; I listen deeply and thoroughly, and take notes so your wishes can be exactly carried out.

You can feel comfortable that I will create a ceremony, memorial, or service that is exactly what you want.

If you are seeking spiritual counseling, I can share spiritual insights and perspectives you may not have considered to help you work through spiritual concerns you may have.

I will take care of you very well. My many years of experience serving others in ministry assure you that your needs and concerns will be met.

◊ My Preparation to Serve You ◊

Recognized as a Human Rights Defender by Amnesty International, I advocate for personal and social change through conscious action.

I earned a B.A. in Sociology from North Dakota State University and several degrees in seminary, and am a lifelong learner across a wide variety of disciplines. 

I am the Chancellor of St Joan of Arc Theological Institute for Gnostic and Metaphysical Studies, and the Senior Pastor of the Church of St Sophia. St Sophia's is a member church of the Temple Magdalene Unity Fellowship, a gnostic spiritual church community dedicated to restoring the Infinite Divine Feminine to her rightful place within the field of human consciousness.

I love to officiate weddings, blessingways, naming ceremonies, and home and land blessing rituals. I take great joy in bringing a spiritual perspective to life's milestones.

I offer a healing, calm, accepting presence. At 60 years old, I have the experience to bring wisdom, experience, and peacefulness to your special day. 

I am the author of Love Without Cause:  Create Inner Transformation, Renew Your Thinking, and Be Love In a World That Doesn't Deserve It.

I am a devoted herb and flower gardener; I live in my garden all summer, and in my kitchen by the fireplace all winter. I am married to my favorite curmudgeon, Mike, and we live in a pretty green house with our puppy-cat Grey.

◊ Certifications, Honors, Awards, and stuff ◊

Skills and talents for which I've been recognized are only important if they help me serve you better. I hope you find some reassurance here.
