SPIRITUAL DIRECTION INTENT/EXPLANATION
My intent and explanation for meeting with people one-on-one:
In addition to being an artist and art teacher, I am a certified spiritual director though Sustainable Faith.
You may not be familiar with Spiritual Direction. Spiritual direction is a contemplative practice of helping another person or group to awaken to the mystery of God in all of life, and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship of freedom and commitment. As a spiritual director, I recognize that God has called each person into being through God’s own love and God desires to be the true Director and Guide for each soul.
My aim is to help people discover God and grow in that relationship. When it is helpful, spiritual direction may include art making as an expression and exploration of that relationship with God. It could take place during the session or outside of our time together. Art making in spiritual direction is different than having art lessons. The focus is on expression and discerning meaning rather than on learning specific techniques. It involves responding to questions visually and being aware of the process.
