Are you ready to open your life to something more? Are you curious about speaking into sacred mysteries around and within us? Do you seek a fresh approach to a familiar spiritual practice?
I wrote these "unexpected prayers" after a time when my personal prayer life had shut down in the wake of my "unexpected life." I needed to find my new voice. So, some prayers use familiar words and images, but I have set them out differently. Others use newer names and ideas about spiritual grounding. Still others assume safe spiritual grounding to ask questions and express ideas that emerge from honouring the presence of holy in our lives. I added wondering questions to go deeper into the fertile fields of living and gain more value from the prayers. You can read more about the how these prayers came out of my life in the Preface. That, together with some prayer samples can be found as a free preview on the curriculum page.
You will also find several downloadable file versions: Mobile Version, Epub version, .PDF file of the whole year, and 12 .PDF files (one for each month) You can download them all for specific application on your personal devices.
A three-decade veteran of coming alongside people in crisis and change, I decided to share what I have learned along the way. But I'm not done learning, so I named my school for my own truth--"Still Learning". My clientele include partners of sex addicts, those at risk for compassion fatigue, trauma and disaster survivors, and people who just want to integrate their many life experiences in healthy ways. Sound interesting? It is! I bring three degrees (including an M.A. and an M.Div.) a few certifications (including Compassion Fatigue Specialist-Therapist), and years of experience serving the client groups named above. My purpose here: I invest in you and create opportunities for you to invest in yourself. Heal gently. Grow wiser. Live courageously.
