The need for work-life balance in the professional workforce is an issue that Reverend Maria Pierre has made her life’s focus. As a corporate chaplain and interfaith minister for Esperanza Interfaith Center and Seminary, Rev. Pierre has designed a specific program titled “Workplace Harmony,” to create awareness around the importance of balancing work and personal life.
Retreats and workshops are components of Rev. Pierre’s Workplace Harmony program. She hosts monthly mini-retreats at Esperanza Interfaith Center. Open to the public, each retreat features a guest presenter offering unique advice. “Soul of the Leader” mini-retreats, focusing on peaceful leadership, are slated for April 22 and May 20, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at Esperanza Interfaith Center. Guests will enjoy music, sharing, and meditation at a beautiful lakefront setting.
“One must remain mindful that people deserve joy along with work and security in their lives,” said Rev. Pierre, whose business background has helped her focus her ministry not only on helping individuals, but also on helping companies bring harmony to the workplace.
