Tradition: Christianity

I am a spiritual director with a Masters of Arts in Spiritual Direction. I am a Ministry Practice student at the University of Winnipeg. My journey includes a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Psychology and a Human Resource Management Certificate through the University of Manitoba. Several years ago I felt called to deepen my understanding of Scripture and to grow as spiritual guide and friend. I have recently completed the two-year Prairie Jubilee Program in spiritual direction and am a member in a professional supervision group.

My inspiration is drawn from daily meditations, yoga and artistic engagement with Scripture.

I have experience with spiritual direction in the Christian faith tradition, engaging in the contemplative work of reflection upon one’s spiritual path through art, meditation and scripture, listening for the word of God in one’s own story.

“The spiritual journey calls us to the truth in those stories, attending to our thoughts, feelings and actions, orienting movement always towards God.”

God cannot be found by weighing the
present against the future or the past
but only by sinking into the heart of
the present as it is.
