Spiritual Direction

“In this culture the soul and the heart too often go homeless. Listening creates a holy silence. When you listen generously to people, they can hear the truth in themselves, often for the first time.”
~ Rachel Naomi Remen

  • meditation, silence, prayer, guided visualization, labyrinth
  • artwork, including SoulCollage®
  • journaling
  • ritual
  • consideration of personality theory (Enneagram or Meyers-Briggs)
