Contemplative Reflection: Individual & Group Spiritual Direction
Spiritual Direction is a contemplative practice for exploring and deepening your inner awareness. Contemplative circles and individual sessions provide mindful presence, deep listening, reflective questions, companionship and support led by trained Spiritual Directors.
In these days of isolation and social distancing, mindful community helps bring connection, balance and peace.

The Women’s Circle includes a gentle invitation for women to explore, reflect, and share our authentic inner experience. We hold space for one another and listen deeply from the heart.
Gatherings begin with a brief time of silence followed by a simple candle lighting ritual. We then offer a reflection piece (a reading or a focal element) followed by a time of individual journaling. Women may then share to the circle as they wish with the community holding space. We end with a simple closing ritual.
Limited to 7 women. (a few spaces available)
Circles are offered throughout the entire year and continuing participants receive priority registration.
Sessions are offered monthly or bi-monthly in-person, by phone or on Zoom.
