Louise Mangan is passionate about grounding regenerative change in the wisdom of heart-mind practices that connect us with our inner teacher, with one another, and with the natural world. Centring Prayer is her regular personal practice. She received her BA from UBC, ministry foundations from Vancouver School of Theology, and MDIV from Toronto School of Theology. She trained as a Spiritual Director with Pacific Jubilee Associates.
Louise was actively involved in the founding executive of the InterSpiritual Centre of Vancouver Society in 2004. She chaired the Building and Technical Committee, and served twice as Chair of the Board between 2005 and 2018. Louise represented the ISC in the collaborative development of the Greater Vancouver Compassion Network and its Compassionate Cities Campaign. And she co-founded Women of Spirit and Faith Canada (later known as Women and Wisdom Canada), assisting regularly with Women and Wisdom programming.
In addition to her role with the Interspiritual Sustainability Council, Louise serves as a Director of the Multifaith Action Society, and as a co-founder of several multi-regional Cooperation Circles of the United Religions Initiative. She offers spiritual guidance and support to individuals and couples of various spiritual backgrounds. And she divides her personal time between enjoying her grandchildren and adult children in Vancouver, and enjoying her home on Salt Spring Island with her partner, friends, family and goofy dog.
