How are you?
Really. Pause for a moment and check in with yourself.
We have collectively been through a raging storm. How are you weathering it? Do you have someone you can process with bravely and safely?
Your story matters. None of us get through life without going through some stuff. We either attend to it or we ignore it. When we attend to it, we can work through it honestly and heal. When we ignore it, we usually end up dumping it all over the people we care about the most. We all have stories that include joy and pain, celebrations and losses. We are human beings with complex emotions, family roles and vocations as well as physical and spiritual needs. Our culture is one of busyness, making us too distracted to know what is stirring up in the deep wells of our soul. When we do notice, we ignore and bury it or attempt a false positivity as a means to work our way out.
Soul care invites us to attend to all of who we are. Everything is welcome.
There’s another way to live our life that invites us to slow down. We unpack our stories, attend to our joys and sorrows, and explore our shadow sides. This is sacred work, not meant to be fully done alone. We learn to lament and we learn to truly celebrate, without fearing either one. This one is a journey that leads us to inner transformation as we come to learn that we are made in the Image of God and are dearly loved. I believe soul care matters. I have experienced the gift in my own life as well as the honor of getting to walk this road with others.
So, this is why I am launching this new website! I want to better serve you, whether it be through written articles or via a relationship in spiritual direction, learning new spiritual practices, connecting theology to the way we live our life, or through understanding ourselves and one another better through the lens of the enneagram. This is a work of love for you, and I truly hope it serves you well.
Now, I would love to hear from you now! Please leave a comment below!
What is a joy you have experienced?
I don’t want to ignore the places of sorrow. If this is where you are, you are welcome to share this too. If it feels too vulnerable, feel free to message me so you don’t have to hold it alone.
I welcome all clients, all without requiring adherence to any religious belief or creed, and I value the diversity of humanity which includes differences in gender, age, race, ethnicity, range of abilities, sexual orientation, financial means, education, and political perspective.
