Hi, I'm Will! I’m a Spiritual Director and musician in Austin, Tx. With certification and training in the Enneagram, meditation, prayer, labyrinth, and Spiritual Direction, I enjoy working with a wide variety of individuals seeking to deepen their spirituality. Integrating my vocations, I am passionate about the connection between spirituality and creativity.
My Approach: My approach to Spiritual Direction is rooted in the Guidelines for Ethical Conduct as outlined by Spiritual Directors International. My personal practice invites the wisdom from many traditions while grounding firmly in my own faith tradition of Christian spirituality: that which you need is already within you. I meet regularly with individuals of a diverse or no faith background.
As an artist, I believe that Spiritual Direction is inherently a creative space. To cultivate spiritual insight in the lives of others, I find it helpful to enter into a creative process that includes areas of exploration such as journaling/writing, guided imagery, meditation, and much more.
My Background: I have a Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation with a focus in Spiritual Direction and creativity from Seminary of the Southwest and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Business minor from the University of Texas A&M. I currently serve as a Manager of Formation at Ascension.
