Monthly Peer Supervision Group UU Wellspring: Approved 2020

The life of the spirit requires attention. It need not be solitary. A spiritual director can assist, as guide, facilitator, counselor and companion. My purpose is supporting your journey to inner wisdom. By holding space for the speaking of struggles and joys, questions and answers. By listening deeply, asking questions, offering guidance, inviting silence, sharing laughter and tears. By bringing my full compassionate attention to you.

 A Unitarian Universalist for nearly 30 years, a Buddhist practitioner and lover of ritual. I bring all my identities to Spiritual Direction: white, straight, female, past 65, cis-gender, currently able bodied; and all my experiences: helping systems to change and congregations to grow, being a life partner, sister, aunt, singer, family trauma survivor, and devoted to anti-racism, anti-oppression, multicultural learning and action.
