Spiritual Direction

“When you listen generously to people, they can hear the truth in themselves, often for the first time.”

Rachael Naomi Remen

Would you like to regularly take time to slow down and reflect upon your life?

Would you like to share something of your deeper story with another?

Would you like to explore the movement of God in your life?

Maybe you would be interested in Spiritual Accompaniment or Spiritual Direction.

Spiritual Direction can be seen as a relationship of ‘attentive companionship’ where I as a Spiritual Director, respectfully and reverently listen to you and help you notice, name and respond to what is unfolding in your life and explore what gives your life meaning and purpose. I accompany you as you share the stories of your life, your fears and anxieties, your joys and delights, what is life giving and what is life denying. It is ultimately about your life and well-being and your growth in relationship with self, others and creation, affirming the basic quest for meaning. Regardless of the directee’s relationship with God, as a spiritual director I cultivate a space that is holy and fosters spiritual intimacy.

This gift of accompaniment is traditionally offered individually on a regular basis, say once a month.

I offer Spiritual Direction in person or using video technologies such as zoom, skype, FaceTime, depending on the needs of those involved and current government guidelines.

I also offer the same attentive listening presence in a variety of contexts including “among the fringes.”

Blessing

Where the hunger of the world beyond you
meets the hunger of the world within you:
may you find yourself in this place.
