My sacred intention for 2020 is to hold space for anyone who seeks that holy space within themselves. If you too seek this space, I’d love to learn more. Tell me where and how you find it.

    Podcast – Art, Creativity, and Spiritual Companionship

    In a recent podcast episode of SDI Encounters, we share an interview with your host – me! This was the idea of SDI’s Executive Director, Reverend Seifu Anil Singh-Molares. He wanted to “flip the script” in which he got to interview me. So, here’s our conversation, in which I have the opportunity to share my own personal story. We talk art, creativity, how I came to work at SDI, and how I’ve come to understand the role that spiritual companionship plays in all our lives. I host and produce this weekly podcast as part of my work as Creative Director for SDI – The Home of Spiritual Companionship. We are…
