Quiet Places Open House with Rhonda Vroman

Come and enjoy some time for yourself after the fullness of the Holidays.  

Just like our breath there are time to inhale all the fullness of life and then to have a time to pause and exhale before the next inhale. This keep our being balanced as we move through life.

As a gift to you Pathways of Grace is opening up to give you that place to exhale. During this time one of our Practitioners will be present to share a meditation, quiet activity, a conversation or you may find a space to rest, reflect and be on your own. This is YOUR time, with no demands or expectations.

Come take some time to exhale before the New Year.

Kim de Beus, MA, CSD, loves the inner journey, mindfulness, centering prayer, music, animals and grandkids.  Kim says that “finding a meditative practice has been life changing and helps ground me to the ever present stillness of Mystery; even in the midst of (the mess of) life.”  

Kim offers spiritual direction (where is God in your life), inner journey guidance (responding to God in your life) and discernment assistance to anyone walking the journey by creating sacred space for listening, exploring and discovering what God is up to in your life.  The emergence of new and abundant life is often impeded and Kim would delight in innovating spiritual practices that may deepen your inner journey.

Rhonda’s passion is cultivating peace and spaciousness within self and others so we can live into the incredible beings we are called to be.  She loves finding peace wherever – in moments of silence, connecting with others, time spent on the mat, meditating, hiking, at the beach – all and more provide time for a breathe pause to  connect with the essence of the Divine within us.

Rhonda’s  offerings include spiritual direction, restoring your being via breath, supported openings, and sound, and integrate the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual  to tap into the quiet space within where being is wisdom resides. From here, discerning what is there, waiting to be unearthed and embraced unfolds. 

She is trained in spiritual direction, profound guided meditation (Yoga Nidra), body movement and breathing via yogic training. She credits her success as a professional leader with these teachings, as well as MBA and BS degrees.
