all sorts of options

Spiritual Direction


Spiritual direction is an ongoing relationship

formed to help you develop and deepen your

relationship to the divine.  As a Unitarian

Universalist minster, my object is not to determine

your beliefs or practices, but to help you direct

your spiritual life by honoring your doubts and exploring the values that ground your actions.  My suggestions for reading, practice, and growth are tailored by you, and informed by my own research and knowledge in a variety of world religions and traditions.

There are many expressions of religion, and many ways to honor the divine impulse within us. I respect all of  the variety of  human cultures and expressions that are based in compassion and ethical action, and result in a better world. My own family includes (but is not limited to) practicing Jews, fundamentalist Christians,Roman Catholics,  Eastern Orthodox, Science of Mind members, UUs, and devoted skeptics.  I have conducted interfaith weddings, pagan handfasts, and civil ceremonies and led rituals for all sorts of groups.  I respect and enjoy the diversity of human expression. 

I prefer to work in person, and can negotiate sessions anywhere on Cape Cod. However, I am willing to discuss phone sessions with serious seekers. Please contact me here and we can discuss logistics and possibilities.
