Explore and Connect with God

Explore and Connect with God

Are you in a helping profession and ready to connect on a deeper level with those you’re serving?

Do you find yourself in deep spiritual conversations when you naturally navigate through life?

Are you the person people turn to, to discuss their faith questions or transitions?

Are you ready to own your gifts to empower others through spiritual direction?

Have you ever asked yourself, “I wish I knew how to be present to this person without trying to fix them?”

Explore and Connect with God is a course designed to claim your soul’s purpose for healing and your inner listening skills, so you can be a safe space for others to heal and discover their inner life.

Explore and Connect with God is for you if are ready to:

  • Claim your soul’s purpose

  • Become an open vessel so others can safely explore their inner life
  • Understand different perspectives
  • Become open to different faith perspectives
  • Experience a deeper understanding of your own inner life/guidance
  • Gain a greater awareness for living a purpose filled life

During this 7 month journey you will:

  • Understand what it means to be a spiritual companion
  • Learn how to ask deep questions of yourself and others
  • Integrate ancient and modern understandings of spiritual deepening
  • Understand the mind, body, spirit connection in order to create a safe space for others
  • Find your unique way of accompanying another in spirit.
