GUIDING YOU TOWARDS YOUR 'TRUE NORTH'
We all have an inner compass (a still small voice) that seeks to guide us towards our true 'north.' Having someone who can mindfully listen to your longings and struggles, as well as your hopes and dreams, in ways that help you discover and honor your true 'north' can make all the difference in your ability to accomplish your goals and live into your created purpose with a sense of inter-connectedness and passion.
What makes Spiritual Direction different from other forms of counseling is the foundational assumption that there is already a sacred pulse (the Spirit) at work within you that seeks to drive the trajectory of your life towards life-giving purpose and meaningful connection with God, self, and others.
Our vision and mission for Spiritual Direction:
Lenora's vision is to create a holistic, virtually accessible forum where people from all walks of life can heal from prior spiritual trauma and experience truly restorative and integrative spiritual support that leads to wholeness in every aspect of their being.
We are especially passionate about serving other clergy and those who have been wounded by vocational, domestic, and sexual trauma, or spiritual malpractice and abuse.
Lenora's mission is to compassionately journey with others in ways that can help them experience healing, develop an authentic spiritual expression, discern new vocational paths, and courageously live in alignment with their truest created self. Our nonjudgemental and affirming approach is based on a generous Christ-centered faith that seeks to listen for and help others recognize the movement within that is leading them towards the life that is theirs and theirs alone to live.
Is Spiritual Direction right for you if you aren't religious?
Lenora believes so! P.G. Reed once offered this perspective: "Spirituality is making meaning through a sense of relatedness/connectedness to dimensions that transcend the self in a way that empowers and does not devalue the individual. The relatedness may be experienced via three dimensions: intra-personally - by having purpose, satisfaction and values; interpersonally - through giving and receiving relationships; and trans-personally - by a link with a higher power." Based on this definition, every human being can benefit from support and guidance that helps them tend to the various dimensions of their spiritual being.

An atmosphere of confidence and trust is implicit and essential.
