Profile: Lily Oster (she/her) offers spiritual direction grounded in connection to nature, contemplative practice, imagination and creativity, and the principles of nervous system regulation and self-healing. She is an ordained interfaith minister with an MDiv from Harvard Divinity School and a PhD in Religious Studies from Emory University. She is currently an apprentice Buddhist meditation teacher with Planetary Dharma. * As a spiritual companion and somatic coach, Lily draws on her training in Internal Family Systems (IFS or parts work), polyvagal nervous system regulation, mindfulness and meditation, and trauma and attachment repair. She also loves to incorporate tarot, myths and imagination, narrative and nature therapies, and the enneagram. Lily delights in connecting with people on all kinds of spiritual journeys or faith paths; she is particularly attuned to the spiritual experiences of those who might identify as sensitive, creative, or neurodivergent, as well as those who live with chronic pain or illness. * Lily has deep experience with Buddhist, Jewish, and Christian life, with mystical and contemplative traditions, and with hybrid or secular spiritual identities. She is committed to ongoing learning and growth in anti-racist, decolonial, and anti-oppressive ways of being, thinking, feeling, and acting. (All sessions are currently by phone or Zoom, and Lily loves working with clients from all over the world.)
