Ruth Pulley

President, Leadership Council

Have you ever been to a new place or around people for the first time and thought to yourself “this is home”? This was the feeling that I experienced from the moment I walked through the doors at the Triangle Center for Spiritual Living. Despite the sea of new faces, I was enveloped in the love and peace of being part of a beautiful family. I was truly home for the first time in my life. This community has shown me the truest and purest definition of the word “family”. It is an amazing community in which to love and live. The Center provides a sacred space where each individual expression of the Divine can grow and thrive. There are opportunities for spiritual growth, sacred service, and loving fellowship. It is a place where the essence of each individual is recognized and uplifted, knowing that wholeness is the divine truth of all beings. It is a place to simply “be” and that, for me, has been, and continues to be, the greatest gift of all.
