Biography

Wayne Muller is a therapist, minister, community advocate, consultant, public speaker, and bestselling author of several books. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, Wayne spent the last thirty-five years following a thread through the rich company of the family of the earth – including those loved and those abused, the courageous and bereft, the generous and the exhausted. Because Wayne listens for what is beautiful, strong, and true in each of us, he invites us to learn together how to find nourishment and delight in our lives as they unfold in new, often unexpected directions.

Wayne has consulted with numerous community organizations, educational institutions and healthcare corporations. He is the founder of Bread for the Journey – a network of ordinary people who engage in grassroots, neighborhoodphilanthropy through micro-grants. Along with being an Extended Faculty member at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, he has served as Senior Scholar at the Fetzer Institute, and received several awards for his work with those in need.

He is now working with individuals and small groups as a private mentor and spiritual director, helping those facing change or transition in their life or work, helping clarify their inner sense of meaning and purpose. Wayne shares his time, care and attention to find together any emerging threads that can guide them safely to their new, evolving destiny.

He is the author of A Life of Being, Having and Doing Enough; Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal and Delight in our Busy Lives, and Legacy of the Heart: The Spiritual Advantages of a Painful Childhood, among others.

Wayne lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his beloved wife Kelly and their children.
