Beloved Spiritual Direction

Welcome Beloved
LGBTQ & Allies this absolutely includes you!

Shawn Arbor, M. Div., CSD.

I am a Certified Spiritual Director. I received my Master of Divinity and Spiritual Direction Certification from Portland Seminary. My spiritual direction style is in the Quaker tradition, which includes deep compassionate listening, intentional moments of stillness rooted in silence, reflective open-ended questions, and a profound respect for your spiritual journey.

What is Spiritual Direction?

You can ask this question to a handful of folks and get many different viewpoints, because spiritual direction is like looking into a beautiful gemstone and seeing how the light jumps around in all its brilliance. This is the beauty of spiritual direction, because we can see that light through the diversity of so many different facets. Together through the art of spiritual direction we discover that our beautiful stories are truly heard, deeply listened to, and shared in a noninvasive way. I practice spiritual direction through my faith, compassion, wisdom, and love. In spiritual direction our awareness shifts to discovering the holy and the mystical in our everyday lives, thus drawing us closer to God (Triune They, She, He). (more information here)
