“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me- watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11: 28-30 ~The Message
Spiritual Direction; what is it? He, your awaited Divine Companion speaks it clearly in the above scripture.
“Spiritual direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see and obey the real Director — the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul.”
Thomas Merton, Trappist monk, USA
Over a decade ago I had never heard of this sacred spiritual companionship.
My life was traveling at a high speed on the gerbil wheel of “doing”.
“Reflection” was a foreign language.
It didn’t take me long to recognize that…
Silence is God’s first language ~ Thomas Keating
God showed up on my pathway of chaos and busyness and invited me on a most beautiful journey with Him.
I was tired, burned out, weary and worn out… I needed Divine Companionship.
Ahhhh, how I wish I had discovered contemplation earlier;
~resting in God
It has been said there is a God-shaped hole inside each of us. I would agree.
As a part of The Gap, this undiscovered space within, while we stand in between busyness and stillness, God invites us to come, escape, take a time out, pause, rest a while….
Completing the certification program in spiritual guidance from Shalem Institute was truly God’s confirmation to the vocation of His choosing.
So I invite you to experience the fruit of sacred companionship….
SPIRITUAL DIRECTION IS FOR YOU IF….
- You’re seeking space to simply “be”, reflect and escape life’s gerbil wheel
- You want to deepen your prayer life and diminish the monkey mind
- You’re seeking spiritual, personal, and relational growth
- You desire a safe place to explore and ask questions about your experiences with God
- You’re in a gap of fear, frustration and uncertainty; you feel stuck
As a spiritual director, I am an available, prayerful presence that listens, discerns and companions you while you seek to know the difference between the Voice of God and that of your own. I am here to be your spiritual companion while you come to know your True Divine Companion.
I invite you to come and be still…
to KNOW God in the way He yearns that you come to know Him
Sessions are usually one hour and can be led via Skype, phone or in person.
Each session offers
- sacred space to explore the deeper waters within
- ways of becoming more grounded and centered daily
- prayer practices leading up to discovering His still, quiet Voice
- space to experience Mystery
He will leave the 99 to find the one lost one… trust and believe He yearns to Companion you on your journey when you are ready.
I would feel blessed and honored to walk alongside you with compassion, love and gentleness as you come to know Him. He has called me to this vocation and I am only here to honor Him.
