Philosophy of Spiritual Direction:
I help allies, family members, and friends of marginalized folks whose hearts are breaking from the pain in the world, who wish to break open instead of break down and hope to mend themselves and the world. We need all the support we can get!
My theology is womanist process panentheist. My spirituality is Moon/Forest/Bone. Path of bone: I am made of my relationships with my kin of blood and spirit-ancestors and current. Path of moon: I grow from the insights of all teachers sharing the lessons of the cosmos and from universal experiences like the progression of the sun, and moon. Path of forest: I am accountable to my relationship with the sacred as manifest in my community, the place I find myself... trees, soil, ocean, breeze, and beings.
I hold an MDiv, am fellowshipped and ordained as a UU minister and credentialed as a transitions specialist with the Interim Ministry Network and a Spiritual Direction Supervisor. I serve on the coordinating committee of the UUSDN and as faculty at Cherry Hill Seminary (a Pagan seminary).
