Rev. Dr. Maureen Hoyt is an ordained minister of Religious Science and has been awarded both a Doctor of Religious Science and a Doctor of Divinity for exceptional service with the Centers for Spiritual Living. She has been in active ministry for 24 years and a practitioner for 30 years in that movement. Over the years, she has received every possible award from the organization for service above and beyond the call of duty. She was formerly president of International New Thought Alliance, Los Angeles, and has been active with Institute of Noetic Sciences, founded by astronaut Edgar Mitchell, on and off for over 25 years. In March 2017, she presented on the IONS cruise to Mexico and was well-received. She recently taught a portion of the Ministerial Studies Program for the Holmes Institute. She continues to speak as a substitute at local centers every month and is teaching various metaphysical classes as the demand arises. Her practice as a counselor/coach is a significant part of her desire to make a difference in the world, and this aspect of her life continues to be incredibly rewarding.
For approximately eight years, she was the Editorial Coordinator for the in-house magazine, Creative Thought, which was published monthly. After retirement from pulpit ministry, she reinvented herself as an in-demand editor/proofreader and is enjoying going back to her roots. She lives in Westlake Village, CA, close to her children, Heather and Nathan, and her adored granddaughter, Sydney.
