Rev. Jude Smith
Jude Smith is an Interfaith Minister, spiritual teacher, and shamanic healer, and she expresses herself in the world in many different ways. A teacher at heart, she sees the commonality of the world’s spiritual and wisdom traditions, and her passion is to lead others to their fullest experience of self-expression, as she supports them in discovering their own spiritual paths, languages, and understandings.
Jude is the Executive Director of the Center For Authentic Living, an organization committed to reminding people who they are, and to providing the tools to live from that higher place. Jude regularly facilitates private and group programs geared towards personal awakening, as well as training other healers in advanced healing techniques. Jude is also an active interfaith and non-denominational wedding and ceremonies officiant, crafting customized ceremonies that capture life’s transitions in ceremonies that are sacred, elegant, meaningful, and transformative. Jude holds degrees in Psychology and Business Administration from SUNY at Albany, and an advanced degree in Education from Pace University. She received her ministerial training at the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City, a leading-edge seminary that immerses candidates in a deeply personal and authentic experience of spirituality, making her uniquely qualified to support others on their own journeys of awakening. Jude has studied advanced energy healing techniques with Shanti Mission, a spiritual organization based in Australia, and with contemporary shaman Raym Richards, and is a certified Ignite Your Spirit therapist, shamanic practitioner, past life regression facilitator, and licensed Crystal Dreaming teacher. Jude is always deeply moved by the strength and beauty of those with whom she works, and her desire is for others to see themselves through her eyes. Center for Authentic Living
