Institute in Retreat and Spiritual Direction, Archdiocesan Spirituality Center, Los Angeles, 2003-2005
As a spiritual director I do not really “direct,” but listen and encourage you to draw closer to Spirit in the way it manifests for you. In my ministry work I have found that most of us do not have an opportunity to be truly heard – without judgment or fear of consequences. I value the sacred in each person’s journey and seek to help you discover more of what brings you joy and peace, while being present with you in painful moments. I have experienced firsthand the healing and growth that can occur when your spirit is supported, nurtured and loved. I consider myself “interspiritual” and supportive of all spiritual paths including humanist, atheist and “I don’t know.” I know how important it is to have a spiritual practice in which you can feel held when the going gets very tough in your own life and/or in the world. My own spiritual practices include journal writing, music, drawing and painting, silence, gardening, travel and time in nature.
