What is it like?
We sit and talk. I listen and help you reflect on your spiritual/religious life, your deepest beliefs and values, your search for meaning, your life’s path: past, present, & future, your relationship with God/dess (Spirit, Source, Ultimate Reality, Truth, The Universe), sacred texts, secular inspirational texts such as poetry, theology and philosophy. I'll help you find and use restorative/spiritual practices.
Focus on the Human Spirit
A session may look like counseling or coaching but it isn't. I am not a therapist and I don't diagnose or treat mental illness. The focus is on the spiritual aspects of life. I don't really "direct" you as much as accompany you. I'm a traveling companion. I don't try to preach or convert you to anything. I promote no religious doctrine. Nor do I judge your particular path and beliefs.
