Listening attentively together for the voice of God
"People who choose spiritual direction do so because they want to pay closer attention to their relationship with God...Typical spiritual direction questions are "Where is God in this?" or "Where has God gone and why don't I sense any divine presence at all?" or "How am I being called to be Christlike?"
- Jeannette A. Bakke, Holy Invitations
Spiritual direction provides a quiet space in which to breathe, talk about life and God: no rush, no agenda other than listening for His voice together, and drawing near to Him. In spiritual direction, two people converse, listen to scripture, and pray together, on behalf of one of them (the directee). This kind of companioning helps us find God's movement in our story; it helps the 'stuck' places loosen, it opens us up to the Holy Spirit's presence. "Where two... are gathered", Jesus reveals Himself, reveals our own hearts, and offers hope and refreshment to weary souls.
My training for spiritual direction includes a 2 yr certificate in Spiritual Direction (Selah Spiritual Direction, LTI), Level II Healing Prayer training (Christian Healing Ministries), graduate courses in dreams, trauma, and spiritual growth, B.A. in psychology, and 17 years experience mentoring/discipling/leading retreats. Currently I am enrolled in a graduate pastoral counseling program.
Sessions are available on Zoom, Google Meet, FaceTime, or phone. In-person sessions will resume when Covid vaccines allow.
