“Where are you?”

Spiritual direction is an ongoing relationship that gives you the time and space to notice your unique spiritual growth, participate in the slow work of God, immerse yourself in the river of life, and respond to God, “Here I am.”

Enneagram Intro

The Enneagram offers a path to wake up to our true selves so that we might have more freedom to respond to God’s invitations to grow in love and compassion.

At the center point within ourselves we encounter the sacred

As we discern our path and our passions in life, we listen and respond more deeply to the presence and movement of the sacred there.

We help you find your path and passion.

Reflections from Our Directors

Hidden Treasure

Like the geode, we develop an exterior armor early in life meant to protect us from suffering.  As an Enneagram teacher I understand this protective armor to be our Enneagram type—deeply rooted patterns and habits of feeling, thinking, and behaving.  We are unaware that in an effort to protect us, these patterns also limit our growth and receptivity to the Divine.  ..

The Spirit of God in Our World

Love is the foundation to healing our wounded world and our personal wounds.  Love creates room within to live in the space of interior freedom.   The invitation from God to love is always present.  Let the Spirit guide you in living in that invitation.
