DONNA KOSSMANChicago Support Staff, Tending the Holy

It is through spiritual direction that I have discovered my authentic self and am able to nurture a deeper relationship with Christ. Spiritual direction has moved me from a life centered on busyness to living in the moment and being present to each person I encounter. The holy listening which my spiritual directors offered to me is the same presence I desired to offer others. Completing the Christos program Tending the Holy allowed that to happen.

As a spiritual director, I am invited to journey with another person in a sacred space and be a witness to the movement of the Spirit in their life. I was honored in 2017 when Christos offered me the opportunity to facilitate students and recently expanded the role to Administrator for the Chicago program. My experience as a facilitator has been especially humbling and life-changing.
