“The whole purpose of spiritual direction is to penetrate beneath the surface of a person’s life, to get behind the facade of conventional gestures and attitudes which are presented to the world, and to bring out the person’s inner spiritual freedom . . .” Thomas Merton

Transform your life with spiritual mentoring…
Transform through grace into the spiritual being that you are. Leave behind your self hate, critical, useless habits and use the daily events of your life to wake up and become present. This begins the inner opening that allows the Divine to create in you a new heart, a new you.
Spiritual mentoring uses listening to you in an exchange about you day to day life. Through this interaction, we can see more God’s action in our life, we begin to attend to the call to grow our soul.
The call often starts with:
A longing for something more or a yearning to connect with God
Feeling that life is out of control
Living in a painful relationship with no resolution in sight
Fear and struggle with aging
Confusion and feeling the world has become a dark place
Having it all, but feeling empty
This can be an invitation to start a spiritual journey or to go deeper on your current path. Transformation starts with a longing to awaken to a new Presence, a new way to be in the world.

In my mid 20’s life turned me upside down. I was searching for answers which traditional religion failed to give me. This started me on my search for truth, for needing more than religious doctrine. I wanted a deep faith that worked and a connection to my creator. I wanted to learn how to live consciously and love.
I discovered the mystics from all major faiths, and I began to read and study their profound wisdom and truths. Curiosity led me to study New Thought writers, Buddhism, Hinduism, Native American spirituality, and evangelical Christianity. I have been fortunate to work with some of the iconic spiritual teachers of our time: Father Thomas Keating, Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault, James Finley, Richard Rohr, and Caroline Myss. I have established my spiritual home in the Contemplative Wisdom Tradition.
During the last forty years, I earned a Masters in Theology, with an emphasis in body/mind healing. I am certified as a life coach and as a spiritual coach. I performed Chaplin and hospice work and facilitated a monthly healing-prayer group for years.
