“To journey without being changed is to be a nomad. To change without journeying is to be a chameleon. To journey and be transformed by the journey is to be a pilgrim.”

What Is Spiritual Direction?


Spiritual direction or Spiritual Companioning is a relationship with a person where the focus is on a person’s spiritual journey. Erin has extensive training in being with people of different faiths as well as with people who claim no faith tradition. She enables a person to explore what feels right for her/himself; and offers a safe container to question beliefs, doubts and the “I don’t know’s”. She offers creative suggestions, traditional and non-traditional spiritual remedies as well as a willingness to walk with people during those dark times that could include loss and grief, trauma, and addiction recovery.

Grief Counseling


Erin has 19 years as a Board Certified Chaplain in health care community including working with cancer patients, behavioral health patients and crisis situations. She also has 10 years experience as a hospice chaplain. Erin is an Apprentice graduate of the AnamCara Project from the Sacred Art of Living Center in Bend, Oregon. She has specialized training in Coma Communication with those at the end of life as well as with those people who have Alzheimer’s Disease.

Intentional Creativity®


Erin has been trained in the 2018 Color of Woman Teacher Training with Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Through The Intentional Creativity process, Erin encourages participants to claim their story, pay attention to what their inner world wants to be called forth anew, and through intentionally using symbol (the language of the soul), a new story is expressed in  the form of a painting, a poem or other creative expressions. Participants often acknowledge an inner shift has occurred.

Beyond the Circle: 
Creating Healing Mandalas


This workshop will focus on using the spiritual tool of creating mandalas as a way of seeking healing and spiritual well-being. Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning “Sacred Circle” or “to have possession of one’s essence”. Mandalas are circular designs found in all cultures and faith traditions. With ritual, music and guided meditation we will discover how symbol is the language of the soul and experience the creating of a mandala as a deepening of one’s spiritual connection to the Divine.

From Age-ing to Sage-ing


This class series will focus on exploring what it means to be an older person in our church and society. We will look at and experience “spiritual eldering”. Author and Rabbi Shalomi states, “An elder is a person who is still growing, still a learner, still with potential and whose life continues to have within it promise... It is a time to discover inner richness for self-development and spiritual growth.”

The Soul of a Pilgrim


Take a 40 day journey. This is a great opportunity for inner reflection by attending a new class that will focus on the inner spiritual journey. During these 40 days we will be studying the book The Soul of a Pilgrim by Christine Valters Paintner. Each class will include a study on a bible passage related to pilgrimage using a “midrash” technique, an experiential activity that opens the mind-spirit connection, and shared open reflection.

Our Spiritual Journey


This class series will explore four different ways of nurturing the spirit. We will experience ritual; creative expression with art as meditation; spiritual reading/Lectio Divina; and the use of music as spiritual practices.

SoulCollage®


Through fitting together cut-out images in a surprising new way, you will tap into your well-spring of creativity, intuition, and inner wisdom. This process is a means for psychological and spiritual growth. Erin is a trained SoulCollage® facilitator. 

 

Exploring the Artist’s Way:
A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity


This 12 week class uses Julia Cameron’s book as a guide for deeper awareness of the inner creative process. At the end of the 12 weeks, participants notice a significant creative shift.

Many who walk the labyrinth experience a deep sense of inner peace and spiritual well-being. Erin is a trained labyrinth facilitator.
