Enneagram Exploration 

To know God more fully, we must also know ourselves. For one-on-one sessions, we explore your habits, actions, and unconscious behaviors to reveal your gifts and graces. This also reveals blind spots and adverse traits you can see, release, and allow God to bring an inner awakening of unconditional love

Contemplative Prayer
 

The Church of Jesus Christ is going through incredible changes. Some are threatened by the sheer magnitude of the changes. Others know that growth and moving to a new level of spiritual consciousness will be tumultuous, but Spirit-led as well. 

If people of faith can willingly embody the realities of God at work in the world, they may find that Contemplative Prayers will hold them in the deepening space of closeness to God. 

Flourishing Souls desires to create a community of people who will practice Centering and other Contemplative Prayer forms weekly for connection, accountability, and intentional focus on each another while opening their heart to God.

FLOURISHING SOULS

There are many approaches to the Enneagram. Flourishing Souls delves into the spiritual dimensions of this map of human consciousness. It illuminates why we do what we do and why we find change so difficult.

"Rather than putting us into a box, the Enneagram shows us how small or limited we have made our own box - and invites us to be our free, authentic self."

Prayerfully consider if God is drawing you to look deeper, open wider, and invite your soul to flourish in new and unexpected ways.

I have been a pastor in the United Methodist Church for over twenty years. I started this ministry in 2020 because I was seeking a new way to connect individuals to God in deeper and more life changing ways than most local churches address.

I discovered the healing aspects of Contemplative Prayer forms at the same time I was just beginning to explore the Enneagram (which teaches how to be emotionally healthy and I've since learned it is a deeply spiritual system for self awareness). Both Contemplative Prayer and the Enneagram brought me to an understanding of who God created me to be, and how much I am completely loved. Just as you are. This awareness also brought wisdom, teaching me to release habits of my personality that were keeping me distant from God and myself. This is always a journey, so growth, deepness, and expansive connection to the Spirit is continual.

     God is good that way. 

I desire to bring these practices for finding wholeness and inner healing to the kingdom of God.

* The Enneagram to help see the gifts God has placed within you and release the habits of personality that keep you locked into behaviors (some you see, some are blind spots) that keep you from following your dreams.

* Contemplative Prayer, specifically Centering Prayer as a regular practice because it creates healthy neuropathways in your mind as it connects your heart to the open, loving space where God longs to hold you.

.... I find both incredibly helpful, because you can't love God with your whole heart if you don't know your true, authentic self.
