P. Faith Hayflichis President of Congregation Emanu-El, a small Reform congregation in Spokane WA. She spent many years as a small business owner in Silicon Valley and visiting Yasodhara Ashram in British Columbia, where she explored the mind-body-spirit connection, reflected deeply on her life, and learned how to meditate on light and chant. She eventually moved to Spokane in order to teach yoga and meditation and spend more time at the ashram. In 2008, wanting to learn more about the tradition she grew up with, Faith began exploring Judaism. She is currently studying for her adult Bat Matzvah and combines Jewish and yogic meditation practices. Faith sings, laughs and (tries to) meditate daily in Spokane.
