All are encouraged to avail themselves of coaches and spiritual directors in their local area. Also, Sacred Space founder and director, Teresa Cowan Jones, meets with people using either or both modalities, in person, by phone and online, all over the world.
Spiritual Direction, or Spiritual Companionship, is a meeting of two people to practice deep listening in order to discern ultimate realities of the directee’s life. In spiritual companioning, relationship is developed with the sacred - that which is held dear in terms of human meaning and values, and the focus is on the spiritual journey, with spiritual meaning, as Thomas Merton suggested, “the deepest psychological ground.” Learn more at Teresa's spiritual direction website, pathandpractice.org.

"I first encountered Rev. Teresa Cowan Jones in the late 1990s. I happened to wander into a contemplative prayer gathering that she was leading with the blend of humility and confidence that mark a gifted spiritual guide. Over the years, I have experienced Teresa as a compelling church retreat designer and leader, an insightful presenter among seasoned clergy, and as a welcoming visionary who helps people find sacred space and compassionate community beyond the conventions of the traditional church. In sacred and secular domains alike, Teresa Cowan Jones speaks with clarity and love. She invites diverse seekers after goodness and peace to cultivate these gifts in themselves and in partnership with their neighbors."
