I have been seeing a Spiritual Director myself for many years. I have found it to be very helpful, and at times very necessary, on my spiritual journey. In 2011 I felt called to pursue training to be a Spiritual Director. In June of 2014 I graduated from The Art of Spiritual Direction joint certification program with The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange (CA.) and the Center for Religion and Spirituality at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA. I am also a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher. My research paper for my Spiritual Direction Certification program was on combining a spiritual direction session with energy healing (Reiki). Reiki is a light-touch, healing practice that typically helps you relax, reduces pain, and makes it easier for you to sleep so your body can heal itself. Reiki works on all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. I am a Professional Member of the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). For the last 25 years I have been involved in Contemplative Outreach through the practice of Centering Prayer. I am a trained presenter of the Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop and Lectio Divina Workshop. I enjoy spending time with my family, sharing Centering Prayer with others, accompanying others on their spiritual journey, singing as a cantor in my parish, and working as a Reiki Energy Healing Practitioner/Teacher. For the past year (of Covid-19) I have been meeting with directees on Zoom. I am also giving distant Reiki Sessions and teaching Reiki Classes via Zoom.
