About Reverend Arlette – Wedding Officiant:

Reverend Arlette Poland has been an interreligious ordained minister through the Emerson New Thought Center since 2004.

Her ministry is Listen Within Ministries.

As a result of Rev. Arlette’s graduate school education (Ph.D. in Philosophy of Religion) and work (University Professor), she

has gained extensive knowledge about many of the World’s Religions along with their rituals and traditions.

About The Clients And The Ceremonies:

The ceremonies are non-denominational or interreligious.

The people who appreciate and prefer to work with Rev. Arlette are those who wish a personal and deepening event as they

experience their ceremony.

The clients are ready for someone to guide and perhaps inspire them while opening new vistas of consciousness. Rev Arlette’s

clients are interested in a spiritual experience – sometimes with – sometimes without – a god or goddess.

But always, clients who prefer Rev. Arlette want their Inner Wisdom based in love and commitment as the foundational

intention for every aspect of the ceremony and of their life together.
