People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.

“There is strength in numbers,” so the saying goes. Groups provide a unique and dynamic setting for spiritual development. Often we gain powerful insights into our own lives as we hear the struggles, solutions, and celebrations of others.
I offer two kinds of groups: Spiritual direction and Mastermind groups. In each group we agree to confidentiality so that what is said in the group stays within the group. Some groups meet in person, and others meet over Skype or the phone. You can contact me if you have interest in being a part of a group (I keep a list of interested individuals), or you can form your own group and call upon me.
Group Spiritual direction is a guided process that helps you to listen deeply to your life, to access your spiritual life more easily, and to frame your life as a sacred story. As stories are shared and observations are offered, insights and possibilities are awakened out of the whole in a way that isn’t possible by you alone.
You likely will experience being held and inspired by the “container” of the group. Each person is asked to bring a spirit of giving and generosity to the group. There is a transcendent quality to many groups in which your limiting beliefs transform into empowering self-awareness, and you gain courage from others to be your authentic self in the world.
As the facilitator of the group, I give careful attention to the process, I safe-guard interactions, and I serve to draw out the wisdom of the individuals and the group. I believe you are your own, best resource for matters of the Spirit, and I support the uniqueness of each group member. I tailor our sessions to honor the needs of the group, using tools such as dreams, readings, meditation, prayer, soul cards or art. It is my aim that we explore deeply, honestly, and that we even have some fun in the midst of it all.
A Mastermind group is a gathering of people who bring their listening, knowledge ,and generosity to mutually support each member in achieving specific goals and dreams. Each person is asked to bring a spirit of giving to the group. From this synergy of energy and commitment, you are challenged to reach new heights in your life and work.
Your Mastermind colleagues act as catalysts for your growth, challenging your limitations, brainstorming new possibilities, and offering resources for your new future. This creative community will help hold you accountable for your goals, at the same time that it free new potentials and abilities within you.
As the facilitator of the group, I give careful attention to the process, I safe-guard interactions, and I serve to draw out the wisdom of the individuals and the group. I tailor our sessions to meet the specific needs of the participants. And I encourage the exciting process of change and growth to also include some fun.
