Teresa Cowan Jones
MDiv, Director of Spiritual Wellness
Through one-on-one discussions and group lectures, Teresa helps guests connect with their inner selves as a resource for relating to the world. She guides them through matters of meaning, identity, and purpose in a way that honors both spiritual development and scientific research, so they can find paths to peace and fulfillment.
Teresa brings her experience as an educator, interfaith leader, and entrepreneur to her role at our Spiritual Wellness Center. Prior to coming to Canyon Ranch, she worked as a spiritual director, pastor, hospice and hospital chaplain, executive director, and executive coach. She is also the founder and director of Sacred Space, a secular and interfaith community that cultivates compassion through contemplative practices to fuel social justice and has authored over 100 tools of effectiveness.
Some of Teresa’s areas of expertise include: identity; compassion studies; contemplative practice; transformational leadership; coaching; behavior change; spiritual direction; theology; human development; teaching; and contemplative activism.
When away from the Ranch, Teresa enjoys biking, dancing, interior design, watching wildlife, and music. Fun fact: She used to DJ at an alternative radio station.
