& Pastoral Care
GUIDING YOU TOWARDS YOUR 'TRUE NORTH'
We all have an inner compass (a still small voice) that seeks to guide us towards our true 'north.' Having someone who can mindfully listen to your longings and struggles, as well as your hopes and dreams, in ways that help you discover and honor your true 'north' can make all the difference in your ability to accomplish your goals and live into your created purpose with a sense of inter-connectedness and passion.
What makes Spiritual Direction different from other forms of counseling is the foundational assumption that there is already a sacred pulse (the Spirit) at work within you that seeks to drive the trajectory of your life towards life-giving purpose and meaningful connection with God, self, and others.
Our vision and mission for Spiritual Direction and Pastoral Care:
Our vision is to create a holistic, virtually accessible forum where people from all walks of life can heal from prior spiritual trauma and experience truly restorative and integrative spiritual support that leads to wholeness in every aspect of their being.
We are especially passionate about serving those who have been wounded by spiritual malpractice and abuse because of their sexual orientation, gender, marital status, race, or other prejudicial injustices.
Our mission is to compassionately journey with others in ways that can help them experience healing, develop an authentic spiritual expression, discern new vocational paths, and courageously live in alignment with their truest created self. Our nonjudgemental and affirming approach is based on a generous Christ-centered faith that seeks to listen for and help others recognize the movement within that is leading them towards the life that is theirs and theirs alone to live.
Is Spiritual Direction right for you if you aren't religious?
We believe so! P.G. Reed once offered this perspective: "Spirituality is making meaning through a sense of relatedness/connectedness to dimensions that transcend the self in a way that empowers and does not devalue the individual. The relatedness may be experienced via three dimensions: intra-personally - by having purpose, satisfaction and values; interpersonally - through giving and receiving relationships; and trans-personally - by a link with a higher power." Based on this definition, every human being can benefit from support and guidance that helps them tend to the various dimensions of their spiritual being.
Within each of us dwells the desire to find meaning in every moment...
to discover our true self...
to experience kindness and acceptance for ourselves and others...
to feel a deep connection to the ground of all being.
Soul companioning supports you in this journey of a lifetime.

Our Fee Structure
We offer Spiritual Direction and Pastoral Care on an hourly basis at a suggested donation rate of $75 per session. Having said that, all Spiritual Direction and Pastoral Care services are offered on a voluntary, sliding scale basis. We trust that those we serve will donate as they are able, and that they be led by the Spirit to contribute to the well being of our world in ways that lead to the greater good.
We also accept donations towards our scholarship fund so that we are able to continue to remain a resource for those who are rebuilding their lives in the wake of domestic violence, sexual assault/trauma, or human trafficking.
If you would like to make a one time or ongoing basis, please use the link below. No amount is too small or too large. Please accept our gratitude in advance for your support and your generosity!
