I share the gifts I am given.
I am thankful this is so.

My Story of Reunion – This could be a book of miracles of freedom and trust!  (written 8/1/16)

Reunion is now 40 years old.
We began in 1976 with a Family Life Education Class in Positive Parenting at a community college.
It was my first official teaching job just having completed my Masters in School and Clinical Psychology.
Approximately 50 people gathered several times weekly to learn, share, support and love one another.

I found myself guided from within about what I was teaching and learning, giving and receiving.
The class met weekly and then expanded to gathering several nights/wee for sharing and support.
Families joined on Friday evenings for a potluck & sing along with stories and games with our children.
We shared a desire to share Love in all we think, say and do.

Our focus was initially learning to be better parents and partners and neighbors and friends.
It organically grew into what we call Reunion: Reunion with Self, Source and all others.
We learned together to forgive our judgments, release limiting beliefs and live with gratitude and Joy.
We realized that we were all learning far more than better parenting and effective communication.

Reunion represents the desire to be helpful, listening to our heart and following inner guidance.
Reunion encourages honoring our Freedom to create, Trust in Intrinsic Goodness, Learning from All.
Reunion invites us to find our Life Purpose and live our Truth, with Love for All.
Together with Love in us, we cannot lose.

Reunion is a gift to us everyday in everyway.
Since 1976 Reunion has founded 32 centers in five states, all non profit turning no one away.
We are an inspirational and holistic forum, serving wherever we are called to give all to all.
Through counseling, coaching, teaching,  holistic healing and service we serve all who come.

We are funded with contributions and individual work Robert and I do. teaching & consulting.
As a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Therapist, I counsel individuals, couples, children and families.
My primary work is to educate, inspire and facilitate each person in knowing and living their potential.
We have founded many holistic non profit centers with practitioners who are independent contractors.

Reunion encourages each individual to find their own unique path and life purpose.
Reunion trusts people in healing, learning and growing to become what is theirs to be and do.
Reunion has ordained 42 ministers with 1-5 years of the Living Ministry Program.
The ministers are not taught what to believe, but rather how to truly serve and minister to others.

Reunion is the Gift of loving unconditionally, serving from the heart and remembering God. (Source)
By whatever names we may call this connection, it serves us all with miracles of Love and Grace.
Let us all return to our natural state of Love, Peace and Joy willing to be all we are created to be.
I am always and forever loving you, each and everyone with all the Good within us together.

The Story of Reunion  (written several years ago)

What is Reunion Ministries?
Reunion is reconnecting with ourselves, with others and with the Source of All That Is.
Reunion is remembering Love and returning to wholeness and Holiness.
Reunion is a safe place in which to discover your authentic self and live your purpose.
Reunion is the realization of your unlimited and creative potential.
Reunion is re-uniting with the One You Are and living in integrity.

In 1976 a group of parents came together through a Family Life Education class in Positive Parenting I was teaching at a local junior college.  They wanted to learn to be better parents, communicating with respect, living in Love and teaching by example. As the group grew in faith and freedom, respect and gratitude, they formed a non-profit to serve their families and communities without the need to formalize the organization. Pathways to Reunion was created to serve all people who sought to heal the past with forgiveness, treat others with respect and acceptance, envision and create a better ways to live and give everyday. Reunion was incorporated as a not-for profit church without walls (501.C3) January 15, 1981.

Reunion has founded 32 holistic and spiritual centers in five states since 1977 serving thousands of people through counseling and coaching, holistic health consultations and spiritual healing, education and professional training for health providers, community service projects and information. Reunion Living Ministry Program provides a minimum two+ year training in how to minister to others through spiritual counseling, healing, teaching, service, stewardship, leadership and whole life integration without promoting one faith or religion. Reunion Ministries serves through Reunion Center in Pleasant Hill, CA, Reunion ReSource Center and Community Room in Middletown, CA , Holistic Center for Inspired Living in Brentwood, CA.  As co-Directors, Betty Lue Lieber, PhD, MFT and Rev. Robert Waldon, PhD, ND serve at large wherever they are called with counseling, coaching, ministering, teaching and retreats. Reunion Ministries continues to offer retreats in California and Hawaii. We offer phone coaching and counseling, plus daily practical spiritual guidance and inspiration through Loving Reminders written daily and emailed to thousands of recipients throughout the world since January 1, 1999.

Reunion Ministries is supported through the work Robert and Betty Lue offer with their counseling, holistic healing plus educational programs and services for individuals and groups and their contributions. Reunion has grown organically without commercializing the work we do.  Following inner spiritual guidance since 1976, Betty Lue has listened and followed with full trust, knowing provision is given for all good works. Serving the greater Good of humanity with practical inspiration and spiritual wisdom has been the key to effectiveness in bringing individuals back to living in integrity the Truth they know within.  In this there is healing, inspiration and renewed creative Spirit.  Life works when we live the Highest and Best we know.  
Blessings of gratitude and respect for All that continues to be given to serve All who come.  Betty Lue
