Discover a deeper relationship with your Sacred Source…
What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual direction is a conversation aimed at deepening your spiritual awareness and relationship with God. It is an experience of sacred and deep listening that helps individuals grow in their spiritual life, through silence, discernment, awareness, and inquiry. Spiritual direction helps cultivate a deeper relationship with God through greater mindfulness, to notice the presence of God in the various events, relationships and structures of one’s life. It invites one to develop a contemplative attitude.
The director, as a companion, listens and is attentive to the spiritual life and journey of the directee, seeking always to help enhance and deepen their relationship with God.
What happens next?
We will have an initial conversation to explore spiritual direction, answer questions, talk over your expectations and explore if you would like to meet. After a first session, it is good to reflect on the experience to discern if you’d like to meet again on a regular basis. It is typical to meet monthly although that may vary for each individual person. The relationship of spiritual direction is sacred, safe and strictly confidential. I have a private practice where people from all faith traditions come to explore their spiritual journeys. Sessions are by appointment in Niantic, Madison and Groton locations.
I am a writer and retreat facilitator currently serving Niantic Community Church as its Community Minister. I am also a certified Labyrinth Facilitator trained through the Labyrinth Guild of New England and I am a graduate of the Internship in Spiritual Direction program at Mercy Center in Madison, CT. As a graduate of the Salve Regina University, Expressive Arts Institute I often suggest creative/expressive art experiences to enhance the spiritual direction process when appropriate. In private practice, I welcome the opportunity to work with folks looking to explore their relationship with God through this process.
