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.
Nature Journaling as Prayer
“Apprehend God in all things, for God is in all things. Every creature is full of God and is a book about God. If I spent enough time with even the tiniest creature, even a caterpillar, I would never have to prepare a sermon.” Meister Eckhart.
But in order to apprehend God in all things we have to slow down and pay attention; hiking through the forest is quite different from sitting down to draw a leaf. To draw something, you have to really look at it noticing every detail and this can be a kind of prayer.
This spring I am offering a Nature Journaling series. Beginning Saturday, May 14, at 10:00 am, we will gather the second Saturday of each month to walk, sketch and share. You don't need to be an artist to join. We will learn by doing.
This is a low commitment opportunity. Come once, twice, or every month and pay what you will. Register here.
Group Spiritual Direction
This group has begun, but we would be delighted to accommodate one more person. Please reach out if you are interested in joining, or want to be notified when the next group forms.
Spiritual direction for the individual in a group setting.
The Spirit lives in each of us so group work can be very powerful as we each share in a gentle, spirit-led way without advising or judging one another. The when will depend on the group. The where? For now, Zoom.
