Audrey Kral

There is a singular Light behind everything and everyone. It is that which enables the illusion to appear. It is that which allows you to think and know. It is that which observes and contains All That Is. You are that One Light within All, as well as the Absolute Reality which contains it.

Reverend Audrey Kral offers her gift of creating space where people relax into the experience of love, light, bliss. Her exuberant spirit and open hearted authenticity invites others to express themselves and share what is most meaningful. She brings her imagination, playfulness, and curiosity to balance profound sincerity. After many years as a cosmetologist preparing brides hair and makeup, she realized she dreamed of giving her calm presence and her love of the heart’s melodies as an officient. Reverend Audrey’s substantial background in exploring spiritual truths, deep listening, and personal development provide a strong foundation for creating satisfying ceremonies.

Special note: Audrey and her husband of 25 years created their own vows and they repeat them from memory wherever they travel around the world and enjoy the fruits of their union.
