Author, activist, life coach, and mother, Monique Ruffin has dedicated her life to living and teaching that we will change the world with a spiritual approach to all of life's experiences. Raised in Los Angeles by her grandmother, Ruffin was the child of drug-addicted, often imprisoned parents. This challenge, along with her grandmother’s life-saving love and guidance, serve as her activism’s foundation and inspiration.
Ruffin received her BA in political science from Howard University and a master’s degree in spiritual psychology from the University of Santa Monica. She has worked and studied with some of the leading spiritual teachers of our time, including Dr. Michael Beckwith of the Agape International Spiritual Center and Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of Calling in “The One.” Today she coaches, writes, and spends lots of time with her son. Her mission is to assist in creating a world where the secular serves the sacredness and well-being of all people.
