What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual Direction (guidance, companioning) takes place slowly over time and is oriented in relationship. This level of work is appropriate for those wishing to make a serious commitment to their own individuation, transformation, and spiritual growth.
Ongoing spiritual direction is not primarily oriented in the goal of becoming “enlightened", solving your problems, or in “healing" you by way of some spiritual or psychological practice.
This is not to say that powerful “insights" will not arise from our time together - or that symptoms will not be identified and potentially lessened along the way - but that the core of our work will be rooted in the maturation of the human heart, as well as in the tending to your innate longing for purpose and meaning.
While this work can prove challenging to the identities and belief systems we have gathered along the way, it takes place in a container of love, grounded in your basic goodness, essential wisdom, and authentic desire for wholeness.
To make this journey with an empathic, attuned, experienced fellow traveler is one of the true mysteries of this human life, and becoming more and more rare in a busy, stressful, quick-fix world.
My approach draws on the wisdom found in a variety of contemplative and meditative traditions, as well as an array of contemporary science. It is rooted in an integral approach to self awareness, emotional healing, and spiritual transformation.
