About the Daily Meditations Team
Phila Hoopes is the Daily Meditations blog coordinator, a freelance copywriter, and a web-worker for green business. She studied remotely with Matthew Fox while pursuing her MA in Applied Healing Arts through the Maryland University of Integrative Health, and has supported his work and other Creation Spirituality initiatives with a variety of online services since 2011 through her practice, Your Words’ Worth. In her spare time, she practices permaculture and Reiki and participates in healing, environmental, and ritual work with a Druidic Grove.
Cynthia Greb is a writer, a speaker, and an interfaith minister. She has a background in hospice, having worked as both a chaplain and bereavement counselor. Cynthia is a bit of a spiritual nomad. Last year’s journey was six months long and included communion with sacred sites such as ancient earth mounds, as well as the much-needed task of offering prayers at “the wounded places,” especially places where First People have been massacred and where spirits may be at unrest. You can find out more by visiting her website: soulofcynthia.
