Profile: I offer a multi-faith, multi-faceted approach to locating yourself on your Spiritual Journey, especially when the path gets blurry. We are all on the path of Awakening. Every moment of our life offers us guiding breadcrumbs, the answers are usually right at your feet, as you are at the Center of your own Mandala. My work is deeply inspired by nearly 50 years of Buddhist practice and study in the Tibetan tradition, enhanced with a lifetime of study of the world's mystics and the Path of Awakening, an Interfaith education and ordination, working with hundreds of inmates through the course of their spiritual transformation, as well as my years training and supervising chaplaincy students in CPE. All my work is grounded with the roots of Emotional Literacy and Restorative Justice. My passion is working with people who are committed to their spiritual journey but would like support in discerning the direction of their path. I will offer rich and inspired practices as 'homework' which will magnify the myriad ways and means spirit works to guide us in our daily lives.
