Rev. PAULETTE PIPE is a gifted mindfulness & meditation teacher, retreat facilitator, and host of the popular, lively, meditation and mindfulness and spiritual practices podcast, “Touching the Stillness” that initially aired on the Unity Online Radio Network for almost a decade and is now available independently, wherever podcasts are available.
A British-born native, with a distinctive mesmerizing voice, Paulette masterfully-creates rich, sacred, mindfulness experiences based on traditional and non-traditional practices, designed to make the practice of mindfulness and meditation both relevant and accessible for daily application. In addition to her weekly podcast, Paulette leads retreats, workshops, and extended meditations, at venues in the United States and abroad; and is the publisher of three beloved guided meditation CDs—Touching the Stillness, Resting in Stillness, and Blissful Stillness. Before heading down the ministerial path, Paulette was a professional fund-raising manager (Development Officer) for a number of medium-sized national UK charities; and prior to this, a qualified business & trade magazine journalist, working first in technology and then the UK fashion industry.
She attended seminary at Unity World Headquarters at Unity Village, MO., and, following her ordination as a Unity minister in 2001, returned to the UK as Spiritual Director of the UK Unity headquarters. And, a few years later, accepted the post as Manager of the Retreats department at Unity Village.
Today, Paulette heads Touching the Stillness Ministries, a vibrant, tithing, thriving organization, which she founded in 2009 with the intention to demonstrate and inspire audacious, bold, and courageous living, through the practice of affirmative prayer, meditation, and mindful living. She is also Keeper of the Flame for Unity Worldwide Ministries’ Board of Trustees; silently and energetically holding sacred space during Board meetings to support the deliberations and decision-making process; as well as being the liturgist at the organization’s Annual General Meetings.
