Throughout my life I have experienced a variety of denominations: Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Salvation Army, Anglican and Pentecostal. All have their beauty and place in my formation, and I can feel at home in most churches.
Now I find I am drawn to silence and solitude, meeting God through and in nature which brings a richness to my spiritual life. I have also discovered the challenge and delight of living in community and learning from the God-encounters others experience.
Approach to spiritual direction
It is a privilege to hold a space for another to explore their life and discern together where the Spirit is at work. As I sit with another, we are at an oasis, sharing the life-giving water. Sometimes it feels like dry desert times, difficult dark times or easy joyous times. All are welcome and held as sacred offerings and invitations into the Divine.
Working at Peacemakers Retreat Center we naturally engage with nature through the paddocks, the trees, the animals and birdsong. There is also the option of walking in the Rongoa or the Labyrinth, creating a wholistic experience, allowing God to speak through the land.
I also facilitate catered retreats where small groups can go deep within themselves, nature and God.
