I work with persons who long to understand and/or strengthen their relationship with God and mission. This includes individual's, parish leadership, groups and teams. Through well designed interactions, listening, reading, music, art, mindfulness and contemplation, we strengthen awareness of the Spirit and learn the ways to discern direction. My spiritual formation is based in Ignatian Spirituality. I have completed extensive training and I am qualified by the Pneuma Institute, http://www.PneumaInstitute.com, and the West Virginia Institute of Spirituality, http://www.wvis.org/ to provide general Spiritual Direction and to facilitate the 19th Annotation of the Spiritual Exercises.
Some of the questions we often explore are:
What are your key questions, and/or God experiences that you want to discern?
My own journey of understanding and seeking guidance from the Spirit creates deeper relationship with God, and provides peace and direction. I practice different ways to navigate the challenges of life, and work. As a senior business leader, owner of a business consulting and coaching practice, parent and spouse, working with a Spiritual Director reminds me of the unconditional love from God, encourages me to respond in love, and provides confidence, presence, and clarity of values in action. With God's grace, when I am my best, I am responding to a greater call. As a Spiritual Director, through God's grace, I create trust, empathy, respect, and understanding while providing Directees guidance, techniques and resources for growing in relationship with God. We meet one on one discovering your unique relationship and mission.
Through Spiritual Direction and particularly the Spiritual Exercises, individuals often find greater interior discipline and freedom to choose to follow the ways of Christ.
