Earthenware Ministry is a spiritual direction practice focusing on the needs and concerns of “Creatives” who are also people of faith. Earthenware Ministry is not a placement agency, and spiritual direction is not a substitute for psychotherapy. Rather, spiritual direction is a process of one person listening to another, or one person listening to a small group. Also, spiritual direction is a process of praying with, and being prayed for by another. In our busy world, there is often little opportunity or encouragement to listen to where the Holy Spirit may be leading us, to reflect with another upon the journey, and to deepen the relationship with our Creator God who has guided us thus far. Welcome!
I have the pleasure of being the Creative Director of Earthenware Ministry. My education has included training in Art (Ceramic Sculpture), a M.Div. from Church Divinity School of the Pacific (Episcopalian), and additional graduate training in depth psychology. I was able to take classes in spiritual direction as a seminarian and my post-seminary training included receiving a certificate in spiritual direction. My theological lens is Christian. I am open to listening to people who are Christian, are of other faith traditions or none.
I retired after many years working of doing administrative work in financial and health care settings. I am currently employed as an activity coordinator in a memory care setting and also developing my business as a creative artist and spiritual director. All of these places of employment through my lifetime have provided rich opportunities for deep listening.
My current reading is in the areas of spiritual direction practice, spirituality, creativity and art.
In addition to blogging regularly, I am engaged in several delightful writing and painting projects.
I am currently open to receiving inquiries regarding on-line individual and small group spiritual direction.
