ORDINARY PILGRIM

Spiritual Companionship. Pilgrimage. Everyday Mysticism.

Home: Welcome

WELCOME TO
ORDINARY PILGRIM

An Ordinary Pilgrim is determinedly seeking the sacred in the ordinary, learning to see that even the most mundane moments of my day are spiritual when I wake up to the Divine in those places.

If you want to discover more meaning in your everyday life, a sense of the sacred, and your own unique purpose in the most ordinary of moments, then you are in the right place.

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

Exploring your Spiritual Life

Are you longing for a safe, supportive space to explore your experience of God? Spiritual Direction is the practice of sacred conversation. Together we explore the experiences that form you and help you become more attentive to the direction of the Spirit in your life.

CONTEMPLATIVE DOWNLOADS

Awaken to the Divine

Not everyone can go on a long pilgrimage, or travel to a silent retreat, but we can all become present to the Sacred Mystery that is always within us and around us. These workbooks and virtual pilgrimages will help you do that.

FAITH SHIFT

Companions for the Journey

I know how lonely, confusing and painful it can be to walk through a faith shift or deconstruction.

This group spiritual direction offering provides a safe and brave space to process your shift with others on the journey.
