Find a Spiritual Director
Rhesa practices the art of spiritual direction from the belief that psychology and spirituality swim in the same river. With one ear listening for the movement of God’s love and the other for the realities of being a human, Rhesa invites directees to experience the lived reality of being God’s beloved in the mundane, everyday course of living. Drawing from enneagram training, the wisdom of St. Ignatius, and the mysteries of the Christian mystics, Rhesa offers spiritual direction as an opportunity to deepen relationships with God and others.
