I am from the Christian tradition and have experience accompanying people from other faith traditions and those who are exploring their own spiritual path. I also work with Enneagram, 12 Step Spirituality, Reiki and the contemplative use of creative expression.
As a contemplative soul with a love for photography and poetry, I am passionate about deep listening and co-creating safe, welcoming spaces where there is room to glimpse the flow of the Spirit and inner wisdom through sharing of sacred stories and engaging in the process of creative expression.
I bring years of experience as a teacher, parent, and soul friend in addition to further education in counseling, through Camosun College (Victoria, BC), grief support through the Burquitlam Grief Society (Vancouver, BC) and pastoral counseling through Island Pastoral Services (Victoria, BC). A long time practice of centering prayer led me to completing a Leadership for Contemplative Practice program with author and teacher Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault. I am a graduate of the Pacific Jubilee Program in Spiritual Direction, a qualified teacher in the Usui system of natural healing (Reiki) and a certified teacher of Enneagram Studies. My formation included the Ignation Spiritual Exercises.
I offer spiritual companioning, guided meditation, centering prayer groups, retreats and Enneagram teaching. Currently I share the facilitation of Abbey of the Art’s online twelve-week course “Way of Monk, Path of the Artist” exploring the place where contemplative practice and creative expression support and nourish each other.
