If we love one another, God lives in us, and God’s love is perfected in us.
— 1 John 4:13

Lovingkindness Meditation

A group meets on the third Wednesday of each month in a private home in Decatur, Georgia, for Dharma teaching and meditation practice. The teachings are drawn from the Theravada Buddhist lineage. Participants need not attend every session; the group is open in its structure. The Dharma is taught as a gift, and participants may make a monetary gift in response. Contact me for the address. 

Retreats and Quiet Days

Group retreats and quiet days focus on spiritual practice and renewal.  They last from a half-day to several days and include talks by the teacher, instructions on how to practice, silent reflection, and sometimes one-on-one or group discussion.  Sample topics include Kindness and Compassion, Basics of Meditation, Foundations of Mindfulness, Desert Fathers and Mothers, and Francis and Clare, and Prayer as Inquiry.

If you would like to arrange a retreat or quiet day for your group, please contact me

Camping and Hiking Trips

Consider taking your group on a day hike, backpacking trip, or camping trip to combine the good vibes of the woods with intentional spiritual renewal and refreshment. Difficulty and format is tailored to your group. I have led dozens of trips, from short local day hikes to week-long backcountry expeditions. 

Group Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction Groups meet on an ongoing basis or for a fixed period of time. Through sharing silence, prayer, and reflection, the group learns to listen for the movement of the Holy Spirit in one another's lives and voices. Meetings can be weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
