What is Estuary?
An estuary is the place where rivers and streams flow into the ocean and the many become one. Places of transition, influenced by the tides, but protected from waves, winds and storms, estuaries are among the most productive environments on earth often called the "nurseries of the sea." The same is true for spiritual direction at Estuary. I offer a place of shelter and support during times of change, challenge toward spiritual growth and productivity, and nourishment for your journey.
God. Great Mystery. Creator. Light. Source.
How do you name the Divine?
You may be blessed with a beloved faith community, yet seeking a deeper sense of spiritual awareness in your daily life. How will you live out your faith? What does it mean for you?
Or perhaps you are “spiritually independent” and want to explore what spiritual means to you and how you might find a deeper connection to the Divine,self and others.
We all carry the divine within, but the spiritual journey is unique for each of us. We invite you to explore. Find out more about spiritual direction, and other offerings.
Group Spiritual Direction starting early 2022.
Spiritual direction for the individual in a group setting.
Because the Spirit lives in each of us, group work can be very powerful as we each share in a gentle, spirit-led way without advising or judging one another.
Details are available here.

Okay, so I found this--or maybe it found me. Created by the people at the SALT project, it's a booklet with scripture, poetry by Mary Oliver, reflection/discussion prompts and even song suggestions. I'm going to use it as my Advent guide and I wondered if some of you might like to join me. You'd need to buy the booklet--download your individual copy from SALT here for $10, and then we'll meet by Zoom to share. No charge--let's just spend this time together.
4 Mondays; November 29, December 6, December 13 and December 20 at 4:30 pm.
I think it could be really beautiful. If you're interested, email Holly@estuarysoulcare.com and I will send you the Zoom link.
We all need time away sometimes.
