For Groups


Small Group Facilitation

I help create and hold space for groups to process opportunities, challenges, and questions.  My initial focus is listening and observing as I learn about goals, gifts, and stories.  I guide conversations with the purpose of naming realities and potentials that may be hard to see.  The goal is to empower the group to create ways forward. Throughout this process, I invite people to listen to God and each other more deeply from places of head, heart, and spirit.  I help groups:

  • Facing questions about vision, strategy, and identity (e.g. organizational or church leadership teams)
  • Needing to process a change or loss
  • Wanting support during a time of challenge, adjustment, or uncertainty
  • Seeking to explore a topic or concept, especially regarding inner work       

Presentations, Seminars, and Workshops

I enjoy educating and catalyzing interest around calling, inner work, and practical application. I lead conversations on topics such as:

  • Spiritual Direction
  • Pastoral Care
  • Prayer and Contemplation
  • Advocacy and Service


Time away from the usual routine is essential for discerning call - or just connecting more deeply with God, self, and others.  As one who understands rhythms of retreat, how nature can teach us, and opening to God in new spaces, I offer help with:

  • Leading group retreats
  • Visioning and planning retreats for others
  • Catalyzing retreat experiences and themes
  • Individual preparation for retreat

Speaking and Preaching

I engage audiences experientially, in the here and now, helping them use awareness of desire and need to gain clarity on questions most relevant to them.  I enjoy being with:

  • Groups of young adults in educational settings
  • People applying faith to acts of service and justice
  • Helpers (counselors, social workers, coaches) wanting to integrate spirituality and care 
  • Those nurturing the inner journey    

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” (Rainer Maria Rilke)
