Columnist

As a weekly columnist for four years, I regularly and continuously found something to say for my column Around the Town, published weekly in The Mystic River Press.

These columns are available as re-prints or we can create something new for your publication.

 

Creating a Writing Life Retreat Facilitator

For more than 13 years, I have been presenting Creating a  Writing Life programs aimed at empowering writers to  bring forth their natural literary gifts. Creating a dialogue through classes,  workshops and retreats, writers have the opportunity to connect with other  writers, learn how good writing becomes great, how to move into the world of  publishing and create a plan that will transform their dream into reality. Enrollment for all events is limited to provide a supportive, personal experience.
       

I can come to your group or venue to present a workshop or retreat customized for your needs. Retreats are day long events that empower writers, invite creativity and offer much needed time for sharing and reflection. Connect with other writers and with nature, nurturing the soul work that is writing. Explore ways to delve deeper into the dream of creating a writing life, exchange ideas and make time to honor your passion for writing. We will write, share our work, have fun and celebrate the writing life.

Expressive Arts Facilitator – Connecting Spirituality & the Arts

In addition to doing Creating A Writing Life programs, I am a certified Labyrinth facilitator and create small group opportunities for spiritual enrichment. With a strong belief in the healing power of the arts, I create programs focusing on the close relationship between spirituality and creativity. These programs may include painting, writing, photography or other multi modal expressive arts, combined with meditation, reflection and sharing. Feel free to inquire about a program offering at your venue.

Spiritual Director

I am a Certified Spiritual Director and trained in the Spiritual Direction Internship Program at Mercy Center in Madison, Connecticut. Spiritual Direction is a conversation aimed at deepening your spiritual awareness and relationship with God, or your higher power. Spiritual Direction helps the person who is seeking a deeper relationship with God to notice the presence of God in the various events, relationships and structures of one's life. It invites persons to develop a contemplative attitude in their life. The director, as a companion, listens attentively to the spiritual life and journey of the directee. 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.
