President - Chris Morency
I was first introduced to New Thought teachings 10 years ago. And after moving from the West coast to the East coast and back again, I have attended several Centers for Spiritual Living and Churches of Religious Science. Then in 2011, I finally joined Unity of Berkeley and truly resonated with the Unity Principles and teachings. When Unity of Berkeley's doors closed in 2013, Unity of San Francisco became my spiritual home. Serving as a volunteer and/or on the Board is just a way to give back to this community.
Co-Treasurer - Joel Canon
I discovered Unity in Norman, Oklahoma in 2008 after leaving a traditional religion of 30+ years. A few months later I moved to NorCal and landed on Unity San Francisco as my Spiritual Home. I jumped right into classes and offered to volunteer to deepen my Spiritual practice. Those two areas are the reasons I feel I quickly connected to the Unity Community and achieved significant Spiritual growth. I am grateful for all Unity SF has given me which makes serving as the Board Treasurer one way I can give back.
Secretary - Ray Kingsley
Ray is originally from Washington State and has lived in the Bay Area for more than 20 years. He started life on a farm, and his spiritual journey began in a wheat field. There, accompanied by a massive imaginary congregation, he conducted a worship service in honor of a glycerin rose liberated from his mother’s bedroom.
Affiliations with more formalized religious organizations followed, including membership in Southern Baptist, Congregational, and Unity faith communities.
Ray was drawn to Unity because it provided a path to self-discovery and spiritual healing.
Vice President - Ali Langton
Co-Treasurer - Susan Ives
My New Thought journey began in 1986 when my son was born. His birth was a life changing experience and I was overwhelmed by emotion. I had many questions which my traditional religious beliefs could not answer. These questions led me on a metaphysical journey for and I soon discovered I needed a supportive spiritual community to help me along the way.
I am most grateful for the wonderful classes and people I’ve met at the Divine Science Church in Washington, D.C. and in Unity. These people and lessons have influenced my relationships and my work as a healthcare designer.
I moved to the Bay Area from Maryland where I attended Unity of Gaithersburg. Finding a supportive community at Unity of San Francisco eased my transition. Becoming a Board member allows me to serve as and inspire this vibrant spiritual community and to join others who share my journey.
Member at Large - Dave Cooperberg
I have lived in the Haight with my spouse Allen Klein since 1980. I helped him raise his daughter from age 12. (Of course she also raised us.) Cheerios joined us in June, 2011 as an 8 weeks old, energetic puppy.
Professionally, I work as a psychotherapist in a part time private practice.
I grew up Jewish outside of New York City, embraced Buddhism—mostly Zen and Tibetan—after moving to California in the early 1970s. Meditation remains central to my practice. I followed Allen into Unity SF in 2010, became a prayer chaplain in 2013, and have been taking SEE classes with an eye toward becoming a Licensed Unity Teacher.
