Learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul.
— Carl Jung
Don’t claim in spring on stone some verdure grows
Be soft like soil to raise a lovely rose -
For years you’ve been a stony-hearted
Try being like the soil now if you can.
— Rumi
Live adventurously. When choices arise, do you take the way that offers the fullest opportunity for the use of your gifts in the service of God and the community?
— Britian Yearly Meeting: Quaker Faith and Practice: Advice and Queries 27

 

Who listens to your spiritual life?  Who is a witness to your inner work?  Who helps contain your journey?

I am a gardener, and like many gardeners, I know that gardening begins in the soil. Physical gardening is so similar to spiritual gardening and I often think of spiritual direction as soul gardening.  In spiritual gardening, the components are within yourself. It′s all about the internal work you do.And, sometimes it is nice to have a companion gardener, someone with a detached eye to remind you what resources you have and help expose what illusions exist within.That is what a spiritual director is, an inner journey coach, a soul gardener who accompanies the journey of connection with self, others, creation  and the Divine.

Fall is always a good time to start working on the soil to help grow the seed. See Contact Us page to inquire about a session.
