When your beliefs change
or you've been disappointed by religion or religious institutions.
it can feel like you'll never find a spiritual home again.
It can be very lonely. It doesn't need to be.
I can help.
I spent over twenty-five years as a pastor's wife before I found myself outside the church asking a lot of big questions. The most difficult one was,
"How do I make a shift in my spirituality to maintain integrity?"
Anyone who has been in a spiritual crisis knows it is not easy to sort these things out. There are issues of shame, emotional pain, guilt and a crisis of integrity just to name a few areas of struggle!
Are you afraid that you will hurt the people and institutions you once cared about? And at the same time do you feel like you just can't keep pretending?
It took me close to seven years to really get to a place where I felt whole again.
I hid in the corporate world where I could use my skills in leadership development and adult education in a context where questions about faith and belief were not part of the curriculum. And I continued to sort out my own beliefs in the context of spiritual direction, therapy and lots of Happy Hour gatherings with friends.
It was a long and winding road and I am in a place in my life now where I feel ready to help other women who are on a similar journey. And I know there are many of you. I meet you all the time.
I work with you to help you:
- Identify beliefs that are holding you back
- Explore practices that support your changing beliefs
- Heal from trauma from religious experiences
- Connect to your authentic self
- Consider what healthy and healing community can look like now
Is it time to start looking at how you can move forward with integrity? Is it time to start listening to that 'still small voice' within you? Maybe it's time to experience the peace that comes when you finally stop worrying about what others think and start living what you really believe and know to be true. It's time to start living authentically.
I can help.
And...can you help me?
I create content, share resources and help women who have become entangled in religous systems and other places that are keeping them from living authentic lives. I'm looking for women who want to support me in this process. You can find out more here:
