Slow Down...

""No matter how much light I carry within me, 

there will always be times of feeling lost, being confused, seeking direction. 

It is the way of the human heart." ~Joyce Rupp

Individual Spiritual Direction...

Are you being invited to slow down and reflect on your life?

A commitment to a practice of Spiritual Direction will help you attune yourself to the rhythms of Grace.


What is Spiritual Direction?

Schedule now

Contemplative Practice Group...

  • WHAT?  Between 2 periods of shared silence,we read and reflect on classic texts written about the contemplative life.
  • WHY?  Until we learn to slow down, we are being driven by our nervous system...and our nervous system is programmed by a lifetime of unconscious experience that we have overidentified with. The support of a group is helpful in awakening to these programs and in bearing witness to the dismantlng of them.
  • WHO?  Young? Old? In a faith tradition? Spiritual but not religious? Seeking? None? All are welcome!
  • WHEN?   The 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month; 10:00-11:30 AM. Come when you can; no commitment required. 
  • WHERE?   This group is currently meeting on Zoom. Click HE‚ÄčRE  for Meeting ID & password.
  • COST?   A $5  donation would be gladly accepted but is not required.

Silent Retreats...

      "If you don't come apart for a while, you will come apart after a while."  ~Dallas Willard

We live in a noisy world that is in constant motion. Without being aware that we are doing it, we begin to rely on sound to fill a void within us and to distract us from pain. To be in right relationship with ourselves and others we must break these patterns. To be in communion with all that has life, we must slow down & enter into the silence,  

I offer several Silent retreat options throughout the year:

  • Seasonally I host a small group of individuals who are seeking an experience of Silence in community.
  • Personal silent retreats with or without spiritual direction.
  • Customized: You invite the group and reserve a retreat center. I will work with you to determine the group's needs, to suggest a structure & offer resources. I will then be on-site to facilitate & provide spiritual direction.

"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." ~Anne Lamott
