Clydeen’s exposure to the concept of spiritual direction began in the 1990s when she read The Starbridge series by Susan Howatch. Upon completing an Ignatian retreat with a time of discernment, she sensed the Lord leading her to become a Spiritual Director. Surprisingly, it would be 16 years before she began her training. Clydeen graduated from Christian Formation and Direction Ministries (CFDM) in 2013.
Clydeen has a dynamic relationship with Christ and has learned from and experienced God from Evangelical, Charismatic and Contemplative approaches. She has experience with the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, Centering Prayer and Contemplative and Silent Retreats.
For the last 30 years, much of Clydeen’s ministry training has been in the area of physical, emotional and spiritual healing prayer (SOZO). Years of experience as a conduit for God’s healing love have shown her that we have a God of far-reaching love and tremendous power. When appropriate and with permission, Clydeen likes to move from spiritual direction to prayer ministry. Clydeen’s passion is to journey alongside others as they seek the Father’s heart, His healing touch, the freedom of the Cross, and to know what it is to belong to Abba and journey with Him.
