Life is a Sacred journey, and spiritual direction is a way to intentionally deepen your spiritual pilgrimage and grow closer to your true self and the Divine.
A form of spiritual companionship, spiritual direction has been practiced for thousands of years in many faith traditions. The practice of spiritual direction asks the question, “What is stirring in you?” and makes space for Sacred longings to surface.
SPIRITUAL DIRECTION IS FOR YOU IF…
- You’re seeking spiritual and personal growth
- You want to deepen your journey with spiritual practices
- You desire a safe place to explore your experiences of God
- You want to connect with the Sacred in everyday life
- You’re in a season of uncertainty or discernment
THE ROLE OF A SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR
As a spiritual director, I offer a compassionate and engaged presence, helping you realize your deepest desires and name the presence of God in your everyday life. In our spiritual direction relationship, I don’t see myself as a teacher, but rather as a guide and advocate who walks alongside you on your journey, with curiosity and tenderness.
WHAT HAPPENS IN SPIRITUAL DIRECTION?
Spiritual direction sessions occur monthly or can occur more frequently based on your preference and season in life. We’ll begin the session by centering ourselves and becoming anchored in the present moment in whichever manner you’d prefer. Many directees choose to do this by spending a few moments in silence or prayer. Others might prefer to have me read a poem or guide them in a meditation.
As the session continues, you’re invited to bring any topic that you’d like to explore in spiritual direction. Through discernment and deep listening, we will open ourselves up to the spirit-threads in your story as we sit in the presence of the Holy Spirit—or, as I like to say, the Sacred Guide.
Our time together ends as it began—with a gentle transition back into everyday life in the form of silence, prayer, or perhaps a reading. In between sessions, you are encouraged to participate in spiritual practices that draw you toward the Divine and pay attention to the presence of the Sacred around and within you.
WHO I WORK WITH
I consider it a blessing to work with anyone who is seeking to actively engage the search for the Sacred in their lives. I specialize in working with pilgrims, young adults, and seminary students.
Spiritual direction is an active and meaningful investment in your own spiritual formation, self-discovery, and well-being. Sessions are priced on a sliding scale; student rates are available.
