Muhasibi Ruth Shalom


Muhasibi Ruth Shalom

May 5, 1942 — May 25, 2020

Muhasibi Shalom was born on May 5, 1942, in Brooklyn, N.Y., and died of kidney disease on May 25, 2020, in Davis.

She is survived by her husband, Antonio Andrade; daughter Samara Andrade; son Noah Andrade; daughter-in-law; Courtney Connolly; granddaughter Grace Andrade; brothers Robert Spiegel and Musawwir Spiegel; sister-in-law Yasmin Spiegel; niece Eva Spiegel; great-nephew Lars Spiegel; and nephew Malik Cogswell and wife Michaela Cogswell. She was preceded in death by her parents, Belle and Sidney Spiegel, and son-in-law Terrence Hunley.

Muhasibi held a master’s degree in clinical psychology; her practice was dedicated to treating individuals and couples who felt stuck in repeating old survival patterns that limited their deepest potential growth as a human being. Utilizing a variety of approaches, including EMDR for trauma resolution and group therapy, Muhasibi supported and empowered clients on their courageous path towards growth and authenticity. Her belief that “peace is an inside job,” guided her work with clients and was core to supporting the transformation of their internal landscape, creating peace in individuals and families.

Most of Muhasibi’s adult life was devoted to spiritual exploration and practice. Her philosophy in life could be expressed best by her cars’ license plates, BENOW and BGENRUS.

Due to COVID no public services were conducted, but a celebration of life will be held in Ukiah.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to Yolo Hospice or the Inland Humane Society of Mendocino County.
