Spiritual Directors are trained to be companions on one's spiritual journey, bringing holy curiosity to each person's experiences and perspectives. Through deep listening, questions that help shine light on inner wisdom, and by holding faith in divine presence, Spiritual Directors help seekers connect with clarity, focus, purpose, healing, spiritual courage, compassion and joy.
Spiritual Direction is a supportive, confidential, non-directive way to explore the power and potential of your own life as part of the web of creation. In these disruptive times it can help you feel empowered to not get stuck in despair, and to grow into greater intimacy with the Divine (even if you use different words to describe that with is eternal).
While some Spiritual Directors work only within a particular faith tradition (such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Unitarian Universalism, Buddhism or Hinduism), I work with people from all religious traditions, as well as with those who might call themselves "spiritual but not religious".
My greatest joy is to accompany people as they name their own soul's yearning, and find their way to the beliefs and practices that nourish and sustain them.
My goal is to meet you where you are, to help you identify the ways in which Spirit is active in your life, and to support you in deepening your relationship with joyful purpose and meaning. Along the way, in order to create new openings for awareness and inspiration, I might offer prayer, meditation, poetry, energy work, ritual, creative expression or movement. Mostly, I offer my faith in the sacred, unifying mystery that underlies all diversity.
