Spiritual direction is an ancient tool of discernment and insight. With a spiritual companion we can explore the depths of our spirituality and truly recognize ourselves as spiritual beings on a human journey. We begin to perceive and respond to the presence of the Divine calling us to be unique expressions of the Spirit in compassion, healing and hope.
Grieving is a unique, very personal and normal response to loss. For you, it maybe the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a dear pet, your good health, a job, a home, your hopes and dreams. It has been said, “Unrecognized losses and unexpressed grief are at the bottom of much of our unwellness.” It is healing to share our grief journey with a trusted companion and empathetic listener. As we walk this path together, may compassion and grace fill your heart with hope.

Presiding at funerals and memorials to celebrate the life of your loved one is an honor. Meeting with family members to discuss how they envision the gathering of remembrance to unfold, provides Vicki with stories and insight into the loves, desires and personhood of the deceased and his or her family and friends. Together we will plan a loving tribute to your loved one.
Offering blessings for infants, special life moments and sacred places, creates an inspirational, comforting and spirit filled time.
You are invited to experience the labyrinth. The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool, a walking meditation and a path of prayer. It is an archetype, a divine imprint found in all religious traditions and spiritualties in various forms around the world. It is a place of release and renewal, a place to bring your questions and seek guidance, forgiveness and healing. While walking the labyrinth some people find peace and/or a deep state of concentration. Many find insight, clarity and hope. The labyrinth is an amazing tool of self-discovery and transformation. At Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Vicki studied to become a labyrinth facilitator with Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress, author of Walking a Sacred Path.
Portable Canvas Labyrinth: 24 feet in diameter. Indoor use.
