“The practice of Spiritual Direction has had a rather profound impact on my life. I have been encouraged to listen deeply for where the voice of God might be calling me. I am more attuned to the feeling of the Holy Spirit as it moves within me, encouraging me to become more my true self (the unique me I was created to be) and make life-giving, life-affirming choices.”
“Spiritual Direction has really helped me listen to the flow of my life. Before, it all seemed random and out-of-control, and now I see beyond al that. I have seen how to relax in life and really trust”.
I feel lighter, yet deeper. The bumps of life often make me smile now instead of groan. It’s really all about SEEING…”
”I have been in Spiritual Direction now for 3 months and I can honestly say it is the best thing I ever decided to do….I am able to discuss challenges in my life which are put into perspective through my faith. I had gone to a counselor for years which certainly was helpful, but I must admit Spiritual Direction is keeping me more focused on what is truly important.”
“For me it has been care of the soul in my busy life. To sit with a person who has devoted most of her life to spiritual growth has awakened in me a whole new level of walking through this life”.
“Spiritual Direction has made me more attentive and aware to what is happening in life, and to the intimacy with God that has been there for me all this time. It is kind of a resting place in my often crazy life. I now see the movement of God in my life, and what that is all about”.
“With my Spiritual Director I feel safe to question, discuss, encounter ideas and explore prayer with someone else on the journey”.
“…I have gained valuable insight in my journey of faith.”
“Spiritual Direction helped awaken me to my true nature and encouraged me to embrace that identity with love”.
Life Maps Workshop
“The Life Map journey has been enlightening and renewing for me. The experience has been both healing and has allowed me to return to who I really am”.
“Susan did an excellent job facilitating our sessions…I liked the systematic approach and how the maps built on one another.”
“An excellent framework to review life’s journey to date and to begin creating what’s next. The Life Maps led me beautifully through a review process by asking probing and important questions. The information provided in each Life Map booklet will allow for further reflection and growth.”
“We are shaped by our stories and the stories of others, but most of us are too busy to stop and reflect on the life we are living…this work will guide you in the process of connecting God’s story with your own for a truly transformational experience”.
“In a world where no one has time to listen or reflect, we need tools to open our hearts and ears to more than a to-do list. This Life Maps work opens us up to discovering our hurts, motives, desires, direction and purpose in life”.
“This series is a wildly unique tool that helped me to take a look at my story in a way that produced spiritual growth and productive focus. “

“Susan has a very grounded, studied presence. It is very clear that she has a committed practice and seeks to gain wisdom at a deep level. This gives a lot of credibility to the work we did together. Susan also honored each member of the group with undivided attention.”
“Being a part of a circle of women was really amazing!”
