On our journey, we may discover a longing to deeply explore what is deep and true in our lives. And on our quest, we long for a closer connection with the heart and core of the search……. God, the Divine, Spirit, Mystery, Allah, the Holy. As we seek, questions may arise or a desire for change. “I have so much in my life, but there is a space that isn’t being filled…a hole.” “I’m seeking something I cannot name. It’s like I’m standing in front of a full refrigerator and finding nothing to eat!” “Everyone talks ‘at’ me about faith and what I should or should not believe. My church. My family. My friends. The groups I belong to. I believe in God, but I’m not sure I believe in the doctrine. I find myself questioning so much.” “I’m feeling a deeper connection to the Divine and I want to be more intentional about how I live my life.”
A good place to explore the spiritual “What’s it all about?” of our lives is by beginning with our own ponderings, wonderings, and questions. If your desire is to look more deeply into your own soul questions, my practice offers you a time, place, and space for your discernment and discovery. I offer one-on-one spiritual direction and companioning as well as facilitation of clearness committees.
I invite you to explore my monthly Living in the Balance journal which contains a brief reflection piece and a listing of upcoming events and programs in the Upstate and surrounding areas. These programs have spiritual aspects and include different faith traditions. You’ll find everything from the Celtic Christians to the Dali Lama and one-day workshops to fourteen-day pilgrimages. And there is a selection of “on-line” and e-courses, too.
One of my own re-discovered passions is photography and from time to time, I’ll share an image with you along with some thoughts to ponder. I’ve found that my attention can be captured equally by a wild flower or a mud hole……so be prepared for a surprise!
