Priscilla A. Munson, BA, Rev., CC, a Long Beach, CA native, is the daughter of a psychiatrist and a homemaker / visual artist / philanthropist who inspired in her a passion for deep personal inquiry and service to humanity through metaphysical eyes and an open heart.

Her special gift is guiding others toward a highly personal, felt experience of their sacred multi-dimensionality.

Pris is an honoring presence of loving intent who recognizes the need we all have to be seen, heard, known and deeply appreciated.

Her mission is to be a beneficial, helpful, positive presence on the planet as we humans awaken to who & what we really are; throw off the shackles of a deliberately manufactured  'consensus reality'; collaborate to ensure our species' survival in a world that works for everyone; and assume our rightful place in the Cosmos as conscious, loving co-creators.

For 50 years she’s been fascinated with the evolution of human culture & consciousness, cosmology, frontier & noetic sciences, wisdom traditions, ancient knowledge & civilizations, paranoramal phenomenon, animal communication, sacred & mysterious places, mythology, anthropology, sociology, psychology, astro-astronomy, astrology, ufology, music-making, art-making, and the nature of polarity, creativity, healing & soul.

During these decades of independent scholarship, Pris was mentored by Little Crow, a Lakota-Dakota Sioux, for 20 years until his transition in 2004.  He lovingly instilled in her his basic spiritual tenants that Everything is Sacred, Everything is Connected, Everything is Related, and You Make A Difference by showing up for your life and doing your very best on whatever road you are called to walk. 

For over 10 years, Christian mystic Rev. Dr. Iris Freelander mentored her in the art of meditation, intentionality, collaboration with the angelic realm and sacred ceremony, as did Rev. Dr. Mary Ellen Kilsby, who taught her about social justice and inclusiveness by fine example.

And since 2003, local visionary author / seer, Betty Webb-Pecharich, has provided Pris with on-going insight into Catholic / Christian mysticism, esoteric concepts / literature, the cultivation of a personal relationship with God / the divine dimension, and the role / value of leading from a deep place of intuitive knowing. 

After first hearing the call to ordination as a youngster and later, receiving Little Crow, Rev. Dr. Iris Freelander, Rev. Catherine Morris, Rev. Dr. Mary Ellen Kilsby and the ULC's (www.ulc.net), her intuitive practice of sacred ceremonies, holistic bodywork / vibrational attuning, and serving elders became her Ministry of Personal Journeys in 2003. 

In addition, Pris was one of Alan Katz's premiere Long Beach-based "Great Officiants" at www.GreatOfficiants.com from 2008-2016.

As a non-denominational, inter-faith officiant & certified celebrant, her work is framed by a deeply heart-centered, embodied sense of love-in-action and pantheistic spiritual world view in which The All That Is, Is More and Ever More... and We Are One.  

In 2012, Pris was honored to co-create & co-officiate an hour-long one-of-a-kind blending of Christian & Buddhist wedding traditions with a Sri Lankan Buddhist colleague, and looks forward to many more of these unique inter-faith celebrations. 

On February 24, 2013, she became a Certified Life Tribute Memorial Celebrant through In-Sight Institute, who along with its other division, In-Sight Books, has been training funeral professionals from around the world for over three decades.

And in the spring of 2016, Pris became one of Heritage-Dilday Memorial Services on-call Celebrants in Huntington Beach, CA, where she serves people from all backgrounds and walks of life, and on occasion, is privileged to partner with other clergy to ensure a loved ones' life is fully and accurately remembered.

From 1978-1999 Pris specialized in producing a wide range of public events in diverse settings from small, intimate gatherings to large theater / arena symphonic concerts that reached millions of people in Long Beach / LA / Orange counties.  During this time as Artistic Director of the Long Beach Symphony for 12 1/2 years, she helped guide the Orchestra to new levels of artistic / production achievement from behind-the-scenes.  Then, as Theater Critic for Gazette Newspapers in Long Beach, she reviewed nine companies in her weekly "From the Front Row" column for a year.  Pris pursued her love of choral and vocal studies in the Long Beach public schools from 2nd grade through University at the prestigious USC Thornton School of Music where she was a member of the Concert Choir, Trojan Chorale and the Hoover Street Music Company, performing solos live at the Greek Theater in the annual Songfest.  These professional activities in artistic direction, theater / concert operations, major event planning / coordination, writing and performing are drawn upon in her officiant / celebrant work today.


Pris belongs to the USC Alumni Association, was a frequent seminarian / work scholar at the famed Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA from 1987-2012, and began attending the Omega Institute in upstate New York in 2017.  Other interests include reading, connecting-the-dots, communing with nature & animals, water sports & bicycling, adventuring off-the-beaten-track, contemplative & exploratory practices, cultivating telepathy & the clair-senses, sky-watching, singing, art-making & sewing.

She lives in a quaint historic neighborhood in Long Beach with Sydney the rascally green-cheek conure, Mr. Thomas the elderly cockatiel, and Mattie the young tortie cat.  Her beloved parents, canine soulmate Timmy, feline soulmates Mattie, Felicia & Mr. Santorini, and her mentors Little Crow, Rev. Iris & Rev. Mary Ellen are with her now in spirit.
