Soulful Journey  Collective

Spiritual Direction, Retreats and Workshops


In his book, Care of the Soul, Thomas Moore describes the soul as “not a thing, but a quality or a dimension of experiencing life and ourselves.  It has to do with depth, value, relatedness, heart, and personal substance.”  We call our practice the “Soulful Journey Collective” because we believe the world is currently experiencing a loss of soul as described by Moore. When soul is neglected it often leads to increased polarity and rigidity about ideology, and loss of meaning.  The recent “spiritual but not religious” movement is, in part, a symptom of this loss of soul in many of our institutions today. 

 

Our Thoughts on Spiritual Direction


The art of spiritual direction is difficult to define.  Is it therapy?  Is it counseling?  Is it coaching?  While sessions or workshops may feel therapeutic, we are not therapists.  Spiritual direction often centers on conversations about the great unfixables in human life.  It’s about the mystery of moving through time as loving, mortal human beings, and walking together on a common journey.  It is about Holy Listening, and blessing one another with our presence and attentiveness.

Our Vision for Ministry

"We're All Just Walking each Other Home"

Ram Dass

While there exists within and around each of us a loving, creative spirit that transforms us as we cannot transform ourselves, we all encounter this spirit differently.  Our vision of spiritual direction is to help bring soulful living back to the center of our lives through a deepening relationship with this spirit and with one another.  Whether you have ever been, or are currently, part of a religious community, if you are seeking a deeper sense of your life’s purpose, spiritual direction may be for you.
