Meet the Directors & Board

Circle Directors

Rev. Cynthia Greb

Spiritual Director

Cynthia Greb is an ordained interfaith minister, a writer, and an artist.  She has a background in hospice having worked as a chaplain, bereavement counselor, and volunteer coordinator. She authored two books and has several blogs.

Cynthia has been active with three different churches and spiritual communities in both Pennsylvania and New Mexico serving as council member, officiant, volunteer, and speaker. As a young woman she worked for peace. In that capacity, she served on the boards of four different non-profits, co-founding one of them and serving as Field Director for another.

For the past fifteen years Cynthia has lived and traveled out West. During that time she became acquainted with many different spiritual traditions—meeting people from various native tribes, participating in fire ceremonies and pujas at an ashram, singing and praying with a Marian order from Brazil, learning about Afro-Brazilian traditions and Tibetan Buddhism, etc. All of this enriches her own spirituality.

Currently she is on the board of Arrows 4 American Indians which helps support and advocate for Native American communities in various parts of the country. She is also a passionate advocate for our natural world, leading water blessing ceremonies and working to save the birds and pollinators.

She loves deep communion with the Divine—in the realm of Spirit, in our natural world, and in sacred community.

Rachelle Frazao

Program Director

After moving to the USA from France in1992; Rachelle married, moved to Warrington and took a self-hypnosis class. The class was taught by a wonderful woman – Circle founder Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. Rachelle felt a deep connection with Hannelore, who introduced her to Circle Celebrations. Rachelle joined the Celebrations briefly but stopped as the language barrier at the time made it challenging.

After having two children, divorcing, and her niece passing away, Rachelle welcomed her grandnephew to live with her. This was a difficult time for her, which inspired Rachelle to search for deeper meaning and she found herself again drawn to Circle of Miracles.

Two of her greatest loves are for our planet and animals. This love moved her to become a vegetarian 11 years ago, and a vegan for the past three. Rachelle also leads a sustainable life by eliminating single use items – all of which contributes to a more peaceful, meaningful, and spiritual existence.

Her love for nature is evidenced in Forest Bathing and the benefit the forest has to help us heal physically and emotionally. Wishing to share this newfound passion with others, she initiated monthly walks for Circle.

Back in France, Rachelle was blessed to have been an Expo Organizer – a position she loved which enabled her to tap into so many of her talents.  She is excited for this opportunity to bring her expertise and gifts to Circle as Program Director.

“I am committed to bring a diversity of wonderful speakers and workshops for anyone in the community to feel and experience a new part of themselves.”

Jennifer, originally and currently a resident of Connecticut, was first introduced to Circle of Miracles when she began taking Reiki classes from founding director, Hannelore Goodwin, many years ago.

Jennifer has a background in both social work and data analysis. As a social worker, she worked in the field of children’s mental health in Philadelphia. She has been working in health analytics for the past twenty years.

Rev. Elaine Berk

Member at Large

All roads lead home, and Elaine’s circuitous professional, educational and spiritual journey did that in multiple ways. As a marketing/PR professional, turned psychotherapist and then almost sports psychologist, turned K through college educator, Elaine’s continuing education and experience merged with life’s synchronicities. Combined, these provided the expertise and opportunity to launch two companies, K’NEX Education Division and KidSpirit, Inc. a non-profit dedicated to helping children heal from the trauma related to 9/11.

While Elaine had her plans, Spirit had other plans, which put her on a much more dedicated spiritual path.  A lifelong seeker who always strives to make a difference, Elaine is a spiritual travel guide, who practices energy psychology, energy healing, quantum past life therapy, shamanic healing, crystal/light/chakra therapy, among others. She eventually found her way home to this beautiful Circle community where Elaine brings her gifts and passion as board member, facilitator, and COM Ministry school graduate. In her life quest to recall and authentically live her divinity, Elaine endeavors to support others to do the same.
