I had my first experience with spiritual direction when I was 19 years-old and wrestling with the conflict between my feminism and my Catholicism. In my 20s spiritual direction is where I found the permission and the courage to leave the church and convert to Judaism. I returned to spiritual direction early in my parenting when I was trying to remember who I was and what my purpose was as a person, not just a mom. I circled back again when I got divorced after a twenty-year relationship and needed to grieve and heal, to get grounded, and to create the next phase of my life. Spiritual direction has supported me to find my path, to stay grounded in my purpose, and to come home to myself, again and again.
