Spiritual Direction/Creative Ritual Facilitation

Spiritual direction/guidance or spiritual companioning is a practice of deep listening and supporting, to help clients connect with the Sacred, however they might define that.  Some want help creating a daily spiritual practice. Some want to connect with their higher self and highest aspirations. Some want to create a more authentic spiritual experience for themselves, either based on the religion with which they were raised or another path. Some feel a deep relationship with God, others are offended by the word. Some want to explore a difficult life experience through a spiritual lens.  As a certified Spiritual Director, I work with folks from all religious and spiritual backgrounds or none at all. 

I also help clients plan creative lifecycle rituals, whether traditional (marriage ceremonies, baby namings, b mitzvot) or milestones not traditionally marked (divorce; menopause; empty nest). Rituals provide a sacred container to honor life passages and provide a safe space for emotional processing.
