Ron Salazar (he/him) began his spiritual journey by stepping onto a 12-Step Spiritual Path in 1988. The 12 Step path’s foremost tenet is that we come to a spiritual awakening, and by keeping a conscious contact with God we will connect to the spiritual power that resides within all of us. The Spiritual gift that Ron received from the 12 Step Path is “the knowing that there is a power and a wisdom within me that only I could be conscious of. And that only I could affect with my perspective and fortitude to deepen my conscious contact with God.”
With this gift ever-present, Ron started walking Unity’s New Thought path in the late 1990’s. In Unity he found the true teaching of Jesus, and two truths that affirmed he was on his true spiritual path. The first truth was that Christ was not just Jesus’ surname. When interpreted metaphysically, Christ means the universal divine idea that is the spiritual perfection inherent in all. The second truth was the discovery of the foundational tenets of Unity: Peace, Love, and a Consciousness of Oneness in everyone.
Both spiritual paths empowered Ron’s unwavering knowing that we are one with God (Oneness, Divine Spirit) and our conscious awareness of the Divine Presence within us is the key element in experiencing and expressing our true selves: the I AM, the Christ within us.
In the early 2000’s Ron was inspired to become a Licensed Unity Teacher. He concurrently deepened his spiritual studies by earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History from UC Berkeley, with a focus on European Christianity. Then, as a newly Licensed Unity Teacher in 2012, Ron started teaching classes, performing spiritual ceremonies, and sharing his joy-filled messages at Unity of Walnut Creek and other Unity ministries.
With successful completion of co-active life coach training in 2023, Ron is now engaged in a professional certification program so he can confidently serve others from a space of deep spiritual awareness as a life coach. In this work, each client is naturally creative, resourceful, and whole; his focus is on the whole person, heart, mind, body, and spirit. Ron holds sacred space for spiritual truths and unique conscious expression of Oneness within each client.
