I am a retired UMC pastor and before that I was a retired Social Worker! I am a Spiritual Director/Guide/Companion. I have participated in a number of long term programs by the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Transformation, the Missional Wisdom Foundation and a number of other short term classes and programs. I live in rural Virginia on 4 acres of wooded property which my wife and I have created paths over streams and we view cows and mountains from our front porch.
