A monthly day long gathering to explore various spiritual, soul care themes.This day is for centering, calm, introspection and creative energy.

Included in the day: Readings, music, writing, creative options, circles and alone time. Individuals in your group will connect in spiritual practice, and have time to create parts of the day to meet their needs.

This day requires a location with space to spread out so participants can take time with their own introspective needs/process. If you don't have this kind of space, Barbara can secure a location for your group at a Metro area location/MN.

for individuals...

If you have members in your congregation interested in spiritual direction, this is an opportunity to bring spiritual direction practice to them on their individual journey.

A one hour block of time one can be set aside at your location for the individual sessions to grow and deepen spiritual lives, being companioned by a Spiritual Director. 

Spiritual Direction is a time set aside for listening, exploring and discovering the Divine presence. It requires a quiet, smaller room with two comfortable chairs and a table at your location or Barbara can arrange a block of time one day a week at another location.



Finding our own story, honoring it, even reframing it is enhanced by being with others. Barbara can come to speak on many topics for sermon time, retreat days, camp themes, and adult educational events or church programs.

Topics might include:

  • Book/Author/Theme Studies 
  • Caregiver Centering
  • Unpacking My Spiritual Dilemma
  • A Spiritual Crisis: If God is Light, What Do I Do with all This Darkness?
  • Geode Living: Finding the Divine gems~Between a Rock and a Hard Place
  • Soul Care
  • The Seasons: Equinox & Solstice Gatherings
  • Elements of a Spiritual Life- A Series
  • What is Spiritual Direction?
  • Seasons of Life: To Everything There is a Season
  • OR... What are you seeking to explore?

When we begin to rest in, embrace, and honor the darkness as much as the light, we gain wisdom and learn things that save our lives and carry us into the years.
