Rev. Dusty Rippelmeyer


Senior Minister and Spiritual Director


I invite you to consider our Center as your spiritual home. A home where you will feel safe to just be. We are more than just a place to intellectually learn spiritual principles, such as Oneness, Wholeness, Creativity, Abundance, Immortality, and Forgiveness. Through services, classes, workshops, and spiritual practices including prayer, meditation, visioning, and service, we create experiential opportunities for you to embody the principles in a very practical way. You are welcome no matter where you are on your path. I would like you to know that this is a place to powerfully step into a life that you love.

Fun Facts About Rev. Dusty Rippelmeyer

Walking this Spiritual Path and supporting others on theirs. Travel of all kinds, reading, the sun and the sea, nature, music, movies, biking (although it has been awhile), my friendships, playing cards and other board games, and loving up my two cats, Cash and Safari.

I have traveled to many cities and states in this country including Alaska and Hawaii, and other countries including Africa, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Brazil, Korea, Poland, Spain, Thailand, multiple Caribbean Islands, Puerta Rico and most recently Greece.
Inspiring Books
I love to read all kinds of books from fiction, to spirituality, to biographies, non-fiction, historical novels, and poetry. Some of my favorite authors besides Ernest Holmes are Marianne Williamson, Joel Goldsmith, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Eric Butterworth, Ervin Seale, Ayn Rand, Isabelle Allende, Barbara Kingsolver, Patricia Cornwall, Rumi, and Hafiz.
Creative Expression
I am an internationally rated PNF instructor and have created and taught various continuing education courses for Physical Therapists all over the world. It has been an opportunity to create the course, design treatment plans, and assist in bringing forth a new passion in those therapists that have learned these techniques. I also love to co-create Sunday and Wednesday talks and to share them with interested congregants. The hours fly by when I am creating a vision board.
