Rev Lauren Martin
Liscensed CSL Minister
To live authentically can be one of the hardest things we do and yet it is what our souls most crave. It can be hard to release the desire to please others or to try fit in. So many of us are raised in environments that encourage competition and comparison to a level that we forget who we are in the pursuit of being good enough. I know this battle firsthand as I have been struggling with it most of my life. Because I know how hard yet vitally important it can be to live authentically, and have seen how remembering who I am was instrumental in moving through trauma, I have made authenticity the cornerstone of my ministry. I believe you were guided to this site today because you value authenticity and maybe are even on a journey to understand more about what makes you undeniably you. If so, you are in the right place! My purpose is to help people move through the trauma and trials of being human by helping them remember who they are at their very core. By remembering who we are, we regain our power and can lead the lives we were born to leave. I became a minister because of a strong desire to see the unseen, to help the lost, and to remind people who forgot who they are how amazing and beautiful they are especially when they forget how to see that truth. Whether you are looking for guidance and support, or a unique, creative, self-reflective ceremony, or some entertaining posts or talks, I am glad you stopped by. I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your journey any way I can.
"A few years back, I attended one of Rev Michelle's online classes, and you were introduced as a ministerial student TA. You gave a practitioner session with one of the attendees. It was the most amazing experience that I had ever been part of. Within 20 minutes, you had lovingly released her burden by staying present and asking the questions she needed to hear to release the unknown within her. It was beautiful to watch. I was a new practitioner, and it was the first time I saw the power of a practitioner's session. I had experienced the power of a practitioner session personally but had never witnessed it."
