Ruth was the co-founder of the Christian Meditation Community in Australia. Since then Sister has been teaching children meditation. When the practice of meditating is established in one school she moves on to other schools and just returns from time to time to support the teachers who are contributing to meditate with the children. Sister Emaleti and Sister Lusiana Raratini were foundation members in Westport where she continued to teach meditation in schools. In November 2018 Sister moved back to Wellington where she lives at Ormand Villas, Upper Hutt. Sister Emaleti is a companion to the women and whānau who attend Greenstone Doors. Greenstone Doors is a Charitable Trust which functions as a pregnancy focused centre where women and whānau can receive accurate and professional information and care.
