Come to the water to renew your connection with life’s animating Spirit and recover your potential for joy and peace. Sabbath time can be as unplanned and open as you seek. Time to gather for reflection and prayer will be offered during the week, and spiritual direction is offered by request, not on a daily basis.

Her certificates in Spiritual Direction and Retreat Ministry were received from Mercy Center in Madison, CT and from the Spiritual Life Center in West Hartford she has a certificate in Bio-Spiritual Focusing.
