Spiritual Direction

We are not human beings
having a spiritual experience:
we are spiritual beings
having a human experience. 

-Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

What is Spiritual Direction?

During spiritual direction, I offer a place where your own relationship with the deeper mystery of life can be explored and honored.  I offer a listening presence as well as contemplative conversation to find the movement of the Spirit in your deepest joys and longings, as well as periods of darkness, loss or confusion.   As part of my spiritual direction approach, I offer experiential techniques when there is an interest in such, e.g. art, creativity, dream-work, music, movement and experiences in nature.  As part of all my individual and group retreat work, I strive to provide engaging dialogue, activities and exercises which help people tap into their lived experience.

I received my spiritual direction training and certificate in May 2006 from the Namaste Contemplative Listening program in Portland, Oregon.  I have also received invaluable training and mentoring from Joanna Macy, Diana Martha Clark, MSW, and Jack Kennedy, M. Div. 

Spiritual direction sessions generally last from 1 to 1 1/2 hours, and occur as often as the rhythm of your spiritual journey needs (often about once a month).  Spiritual direction sessions are on a sliding scale, generally $50-100 per session.  Spiritual direction flourishes only when there is a natural and easy connection with your spiritual director.  To allow the space to determine whether I will be a fit for you, I offer the first session for free.  To find out more information, or to schedule a spiritual direction session, email me or call me at  503-708-9751 or
