Mahala Connally

Dr. Marianne "Mahala" Connally has been the Spiritual Leader at Unity by the Bay since 2000. In addition to being a mother, wife, teacher, counselor, and writer, she is a Licensed Unity Teacher through the Unity School of Christian Studies. She holds degrees in psychology from the University of Alaska and psychoneuroimmunology from the American Pacific University. She has particular expertise in conflict resolution and peace making. Mahala grew up in Tanzania, where her father was a missionary; she speaks Swahili. Her love for the wisdom and cultures of indigenous people attracted her to Unity, as it gives her the opportunity to blend her Christian background with the multi-cultural influences of her childhood. She is also part-Sioux Indian in her maternal lineage. Mahala’s Sunday morning messages are insightful, inspirational, and motivating. We invite you to join us for a Sunday service to share the joy of our congregation and the blessings of our loving spiritual community. We would be blessed by your presence.
