Spiritual direction for me was a door that opened an entirely new world. When someone mentioned that I should consider spiritual direction, it was like a light went on and everything made a little more sense! What began as a journey seeking healing following challenges with my physical health, continued on as a journey of deepening my spiritual practices and spiritual health in new ways. I had already been serving as a Lutheran Pastor and later became a distance student with the Tending the Holy program (2013 graduate). I am grateful to continue to serve as a spiritual director as well as having the opportunity to partner with Christos as one of the Distance Learning Coordinators.
