New Year, New Website

I am happy to announce the upload of a place where folks can find me, find info about my work, and hopefully find comfort through wise words and interesting art. Being a beginning blogger, I am not sure what more to say. So I won’t. Oh, but wait: look around and tell me what you think. Feedback appreciated.

Funerals & Memorial Services

As an ordained Interfaith minister, I lead meaningful rituals that commemorate life and honor loss.  These are appropriate for people with little or no religious affiliation who wish to create room for individual understandings of reality, spirit, truth, or the like in their group gathering.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction

I offer a mindfulness-based approach of meeting life directly, fully and compassionately. ‘Spiritual Direction’ is known by many names: spiritual companioning, spiritual guidance, spiritual accompaniment are just a few. In general, the purpose is to cultivate a deeper relationship with the spiritual aspect of being human.

Grief Companioning

I support mourners in transforming their grief into acceptance, ease and a renewed capacity for joy. While ‘grief counseling’ is an oft-used term, grief companioning more accurately describes the intention I hold with clients.

Education Services

Education

I teach programs that explore the profound and universal experiences of life, death, and personal transformation. These programs support communities, teams, families, students, and professionals (healthcare, social services, etc.) in learning how to work skillfully with aging, sickness, loss, and dying.
