Philosophy of Spiritual Direction:

Resting within the possibilities of the hour, spiritual direction offers a gaze at what is presented. The words, questions, and patterns as open up what is offered for reflection. Using questions, space, and reminders can offer links into the present. The hope is to support the person's relationship with their life. What does spirit bring today? What is the guiding image/story/ word for the wrestling today? 

Karen Mooney is a Unitarian Universalist minister, musician and spiritual director.  Her ministry is defined by engaging creative space with intuition and courage. Karen affirms that wisdom is always available from within our lives, we simply need reminders to slow down and listen from time to time.  Karen has worked in a corporate setting, as a congregational minister, and as a community organizer with UU Prison Ministries of IL. Her faith is found in  seeing the presence of spirit in the world.  She studied spiritual direction at the Claret Center in Chicago (Hyde Park) IL.
