God is Love.
To know Love
by personal experience
(rather than by mere knowledge without experience)
can lead to spiritual healing,
and deepening.

What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual direction is an ancient practice, from the earliest centuries of Christianity, in which the Spiritual Director companions the traveler on their spiritual journey, so that the traveler might deepen their relationship with God, become more aware of the presence of God in daily life, discern God’s leading, and bring wounds of the heart before God for healing.A Spiritual Director may also be known as a Spiritual Companion, Spiritual Guide, or Anam Cara (friend of the heart).

Friend of the Heart

My heart is tender toward individuals who have been wounded by involvement with organized religion as well as those in the church who are sensing a desire to go deeper with God; those serving in ministry, both ordained and not ordained, as they navigate the needs of their own souls; those who identify as LGBTQIA+ as they open their hearts; and all who deeply desire to be heard and to know their true self.

I am available for individual as well as group spiritual direction, and for facilitating contemplative prayer groups, contemplative book discussion groups, spiritual writing circles, and retreats.
