Decision-Making and Discernment

Spiritual Direction • Sacred Listening

"No one else can look out for your inner life but yourself."  -the Irish poet, John O'Donohue

Take the time to speak aloud. Hear your own words. Explore perspectives. Recognize hidden truths. At times we need someone trusted and objective other to help us find our true way; not one who answers but one who holds space, asks questions, reflects and listens.

As a certified Spiritual Director, Barb helps clients gain insight and perspective. Give yourself the gifts of deep listening and potent, thought-provoking questions within  a hallowed space. Allow inner wisdom to emerge and provide guidance.  60 and 90 minute sessions are available in her Southwest Minneapolis office.

“When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”
– From "Tell Me More,” an essay by Brenda Ueland

I would love to live
Like a river flows,
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding.
