Let's Work Together!
I want to get to know you better - what your spiritual & religious life and journey have been like, what current / past spiritual or religious practices you've had experience with, and some of the joys and challenges you've had.
My Spiritual Direction Assessment will help you to describe your experiences and reveal what you'd like to receive from Spiritual Direction, and how I may best accompany you during your spiritual journey.
Why work with Me
Spiritual Direction & Companionship is a contemplative process (one which draws you into stillness) offering one-on-one accompaniment that unfolds through spiritual listening, presence and reflection with attention to what is meaningful and sacred to you, my client. I'll work with you through a process of examining and exploring your spiritual path, utilizing my training in deep listening and discernment.
Spiritual Direction is a practice that can function well in a hectic, multi-faith world - it's about helping you as my client to become more attentive regarding the presence of divinity/spirit/the sacred, noticing where it is most deeply felt, and assisting you on your spiritual journey.
Whether you call divinity God, Spirit, Allah, Tao, the Universe, the Ground of All Being, what is Sacred, or some other term, Spiritual Direction gives you access to a professional relationship where I as your companion practice deep listening regarding your spiritual story and I'll walk with you as you explore a deeper relationship with divinity.
