I am a trained spiritual director and my special interest is to journey alongside caregivers, especially those without a voice or space to tell their sacred story.

Hi! Nice to meet you. I offer Spiritual Direction for anyone searching for their way in the world and their tradition. I'm a former Christian pastor in an evangelical denomination. I am studying in the Haden Institute program for Spiritual Direction and will graduate in January 2023. If your current spiritual framework no longer works for you and you are looking for a knowledgable, experienced companion to walk through the process of finding what's next, I'd love to speak with you! I look forward to companioning spiritual seekers of all races, genders, sexual orientations and faith backgrounds(or lack thereof!). I am fully affirming! You can email or call me. I'm open to in person direction or by zoom. I would be honored to come alongside you on your spiritual journey.

The term spiritual director is ancient and widely used, yet-I prefer spiritual companion. I consider it an honor and a privilege to sit with someone as we both wait in awareness of the Holy Spirit. When we meet we will spend our time together in the presence of the Holy Spirit to look, listen, discern and move closer to the heart of God. This is not a quick process but a long obedience in the same direction. We will spend a lot of time in quiet listening to the Lord. What brought me to desire to be a spiritual companion? My journey to this ministry was after 20+ years of walking with Jesus-I wanted more. I found myself tired and weary in my life and I knew the life promised in Scripture was very different. My desire grew for more of God and more of the abundant life Jesus tells us about. (John 10:10) So I began my search for more of Jesus and over the last 8 years he has met me. Every. Step. Of. The. Way. A way that brought me to enter training as a spiritual director in September 2020. God’s lovingkindness has been evident throughout and I am grateful to be able to share that with others. My desire for more has not waned but only grown as I continue to seek the path he has laid out before me. In May 2022 I completed training with the Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction. I have experience directing: women, women in ministry, women in crisis I have experience with: The Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, Lectio Divina, teen moms, moms of teen moms, families of those with addictions, those who have experienced divorce I have been on staff with one of the largest youth ministries in the world for almost 25 years and serve caring for staff, as a spiritual director, creating solitude retreats and mentoring younger staff women.

I am Spiritual Director, Enneagram Coach, and a Priest in the Celtic Christian Tradition. I was trained in Spiritual Direction by both the Benedictines and the Celtic Christian Church, culminating with a two year Spiritual Direction Internship with the Benedict Inn in Beech Grove, IN. I was trained in the Narrative Tradition of the Enneagram by the core faculty of the Narrative Enneagram. In addition to my private practice as a Spiritual Director and Enneagram Coach I also serve as the Spiritual Advisor for Recovery Center's of America in Indianapolis. I have over 20 years of experience leading faith communities and guiding spiritual formation. I want nothing more than to help people discover the joy and peace of contemplative practice and the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.

I specialize in working with people who are going through transitions in their faith, like those going through deconstruction, questioning their faith, or those establishing new practices. I enjoy walking with people through some of their most challenging valleys of faith, when it feels like their whole faith structure is crumbling around them because I know that there is light, life, and hope on the other side of that valley.

I have received additional training in supervision, group spiritual direction and spiritual direction with youth and children.

Whether you’re deeply rooted in your faith tradition, drawing from many wisdom paths and practices, or exploring how your spiritual life wants to meaningfully take form, I’m here to support your longing to engage life’s big questions with intentionality and mindfulness. And delight! I’ve been a practicing spiritual director since I completed training at The Chaplaincy Institute in 2012. Other formative experiences that shape the quality of my listening include work as a chaplain, bereavement counselor and massage therapist, and graduate studies in transpersonal psychology and embodied spirituality. How can you deepen into a dynamic relationship with the sacred? What helps you align with your inner knowing? Together, we can lean into expressive arts, dreamwork, somatic awareness, nature connection and other practices to discover the movements of Spirit in your life that point the way. I offer a free 15-minute consultation if you’d like to explore how we might work together. Blessings!

Grace and peace to you. My name is Brett and I am a Pastor and Spiritual Director. I began pastoral ministry in 2011, ministering in a small, rural community. As a pastor, neighbor, and friend, I have walked with others through life and death, health and illness, faith and despair. I believe that God comes down to be near to us, accommodating to us as we are and loving us as we are, especially in our poverty. It is hard to remember that God is near to us, and sometimes it's hard to believe it and impossible to feel it. Yet the journey of faith is not one we walk alone. We are all part of one body and it is through our connection and sharing that we are strengthened. My faith and spirituality are influenced by the Christian scriptures, in particular the accounts of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke, the book of Job, and the mythic story of Joseph as told in Genesis. My spirituality is most vibrant at the intersections of the Christian faith and psychology. Carl Jung, Alice Miller, and James Finley have deeply impacted my sense of self. The Christian mystics Abba Anthony, St. Teresa of Avila, and Thomas Merton are my best spiritual elders and teachers. I completed my Spiritual Direction training at the Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction in Tucson, AZ in the spring of 2022. I am an ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America and completed a Doctorate of Ministry in 2019 with the following learning units: 1) Spiritual Formation and Humility, 2) Male Spirituality and Psychology, 3) Midwestern Sociology, 4) Retreat Leadership and Adult Pedagogy. During the past 10+ years, I have mentored first-call pastors, seminarians, and college students. I have also spent considerable time with various people experiencing loss and pain. I wrestle with questions of God and faith, the church and spirituality, my own sense of call and responsibility to my neighbor. My spirit is very open to the experiences, traditions, and perspectives of others, and while I would say that I am spiritual and religious, I am open to those who are spiritual but not religious. Spiritual Abuse is one of my areas of focus. Many religious communities stifle and abuse the work of the Spirit, but I believe the Spirit brings freedom and that healing and wholeness are possible. If you are looking for a director or companion for your faith journey, I would be glad to connect and explore that possibility.

Providing Christian Spiritual Direction, Lectio Divina, listening prayer, retreats, speaking engagements and preaching. "The whole purpose of spiritual direction is to penetrate beneath the surface of a person’s life, to get behind the façade of conventional gestures and attitudes which one presents to the world, and to bring out one’s inner spiritual freedom, one’s inmost truth, which is what [Christians] call the likeness of Christ in one’s soul. This is an entirely supernatural (spiritual) thing, for the work of rescuing the inner person from automatism belongs first of all to the Holy Spirit." Thomas Merton, Trappist monk, Lectio Divina is an ancient way of reading scripture. It is a Latin term, means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. A passage is chosen and read aloud several times, each time asking a different question. A time of meditation is given between each reading. An opportunity is then given in small groups to share what the Holy Spirit is whispering into your life. Kathleen spent 20 years serving the church in various ministry roles from Youth pastor to Associate pastor. She graduated from Regent College in Vancouver with a Master’s in Christian Studies where she explored spiritual direction and applied theology. She recently completed her Doctorate in Ministry in Leadership and Spiritual Formation through George Fox University.

One of the first 100 Doctors of Ayurveda in the USA, I offer consultation in orthodox ayurveda; 'rose-based' energy-medicine meditation instruction; and liberatory spiritual accompaniment/ direction. What they share in common is my emphasis on you listening to yourself, your intuition, and your body, with input and guidance from the deep traditions I have studied. In spiritual direction sessions, the main modality is simply my trained noticing of what you notice. Feel free to send me an email to tell me about your situation and/ or to arrange a 15-minute free phone introduction. I look forward to discerning together whether we might sit together awhile, in witness to all that's happening in your life, and perhaps in witness to All-That-Is. ~Victoria
