Rev. Ken Daigle, Senior Minister
Rev. Ken Daigle is a lively speaker whose deep spiritual commitment and knowledge is conveyed with irresistible enthusiasm. Ken was raised in New Orleans and its spirit of music, dance, and celebration still permeate his life today. He moved from the Big Easy to the Big Apple for show business and had a successful and exciting career as a professional actor, singer, dancer, director and choreographer.
Ken had the extreme honor of working with Jerome Robbins while performing in the 1990 revival of Fiddler on the Roof staring Chaim Topol. And has since worked with the Jerome Robbins Trust directing and choreographing Fiddler around the United States and Canada. His other theatrical credits include Damn Yankees, Phantom, West Side Story, Joseph, Forum, Show Boat, and Evita.
His journey into Truth and New Thought Teachings started in New York City with Marianne Williamson and then with Eric Butterworth’s Unity Church in 1989. He later found and dove into deeper studies of Unity with Rev. Paul Tenaglia at Unity of New York. In 2009 he added Unity Village and Unity Institute to his spiritual home base.
Ken quickly became a leader in the Unity spiritual community, teaching classes, workshops, and presenting Sunday lessons at Unity Churches in Palo Alto, Manhattan, KS, Quincy, IL, New York, San Francisco, Kansas City and others. In the summer of 2009, he became a Licensed Unity Teacher and was ordained as a Unity Minister by Rev. Paul Tenaglia at Unity in March of 2012. Ken served as Senior Minister at Unity of Fremont from 2011 to 2012.
You may remember Ken from when he interned at Unity San Francisco in 2011 and coordinated the Thriving Forward program. Ken continued his association with Unity San Francisco teaching several classes: Jesus: Fact or Myth?, Spiritual Tool Box, and Metaphysics 2, and guest speaking whenever he had the chance. Ken has been Senior Minister at Unity San Francisco since September 2012.
Ken is the author of the internationally acclaimed course Absolute Abundance, which he developed and teaches throughout the United States. To know more about the course, go to absoluteabundance.org or call our office at 415-474-0440.
In 2007, Ken achieved his greatest success at a small event in Canada where he married the love of his life, JD Schramm. They make their home in San Francisco, are the proud parents of Tobias and Roma, and are living the dream!
