Spiritual Direction / Mentoring

Spiritual direction is…
an exploration of one’s own experience. Discussions can range from long-term spiritual growth and practices to small coincidences that speak to Sacred presence on a daily basis. The ‘goal’ is a deeper connection to the Divine, however you understand Him/Her/It.

Each one-on-one session is conducted in a comfortable setting.
You, as the client, determine the depth and intensity of the process.

You might benefit if…
~ you are going through a transition in your life
~ you are trying to make meaning of a chronic and/or serious illness
~ you would like to deepen your connection to God
~ you don’t have a faith community
~ you are seeking spiritual depth beyond your faith community

Connect with God intentionally, deeply, experientially. Spend one hour with Rev. Carrie each month looking at the way God / The Divine / Spirit works in your life. The introductory session, “Where are you? Where is God?,” is a wonderful exploration into if direction is right for you and if Rev Carrie is the right director for you.

Spiritual Coaching

Spiritual Coaching is Spiritual Direction with the added knowledge provided by a lifetime of chronic / terminal illness, which Rev. Carrie survived. If you would like to look at questions of how God fits in with illness of any sort, and particularly chronic or serious illness, we recommend that you try Spiritual Coaching above Spiritual Direction. The introductory session, “Where are you? Where is God?,” is a wonderful exploration into whether direction or coaching would be a better fit. Coaching can be done on a per-session or multi-session basis or through a program, such as:

“From Sickness to Wellness: The Renewed Spirit” – a concrete program within Spiritual Coaching

“You didn’t die.  Now what?”  This program is designed specifically for the survivor of serious illness – cancer, transplant, or any other potentially terminal diagnosis. Through four one-hour sessions, we will look at specific questions that are often strongly prevalent for the survivor. A wonderful program for those new to spiritual coaching and with a survivor history.

 

“Where are you? Where is God?” – exploratory session for Spiritual Direction or Coaching

This one-hour session is a wonderful exploration into spiritual direction. Used as the introductory session for both spiritual direction and spiritual coaching, this session will help the client discern where they are in their relationship with the Divine, whether spiritual contemplative work (direction or coaching) is right for them and if Rev. Carrie is the right practitioner for them. Currently offered at Spirit Renewal Center. $20. Book online or contact Rev. Carrie to book directly with her (for expanded availability).

 

 

The Avatar Course

The mission of Avatar® in the world is to catalyze the integration of belief systems.
When we perceive that the only difference between us is our beliefs
and that beliefs can be created or discreated with ease,
the right and wrong game will wind down, a co-create game will unfold, and world peace will ensue.
The Avatar Course is a series of experiential exercises that enables you to rediscover your self and align your consciousness with what you want to achieve. You will experience your own unique insights and revelations. It’s you finding out about you.

To learn more about Avatar and experience the tools for yourself, schedule a free Info Hour with Carrie today!

Worship Services

Worship is our way of lifting up that which is Sacred.  What is sacred differs for different people and between different cultures.  I have offered Worship Services in Chelmsford, Massachusetts; Matinicus, Maine; and Amherst, New Hampshire.  I am happy to come to your place of worship to lead a service; get in touch, and we can discuss details.

Upcoming worship dates:

Check back for summer dates!

 

Previous worship topics have included:

Both, And

Interdependence

Spring Tide

Let’s Call God “Pat”

Island Strong

Relax and Know God

Let It Go: The Interconnection of Gratitude and Trust 

 

 

Weddings

Every couple is individual; every loving relationship is individual; every spirituality is slightly different than every other.  I firmly believe that every wedding or commitment ceremony should also be individual.

It might be a legal contract, but my part is to bring the sacred into the ceremony. God knows and loves each of us individually and uniquely; why should our rituals not also be as unique as we are?

I work with the couple to design their ceremony to match their spirituality, their likes and dislikes, their love and relationship with each other. Whether a brief ten-minute ceremony or a 45 minute service, including readings and music, your wedding ceremony is your own.

An in-person or via Skype session with BOTH members of the couple is required, along with a deposit, before the wedding date will be confirmed. 

 

 

Baby Blessings

A baby blessing is a sacred rite that surpasses any particular religion. The parents, godparents, extended family and friends all wish to express their own blessings for the baby. This is also a wonderful time to dedicate the child to the fulfillment of his or her own special purpose in this lifetime, as well as dedicating the baby to the service of God – however that service manifests.

Take the time to intentionally welcome your child to this world and this life. Your child will gain spiritual support for their lifetime, as will you.

 

 

Funerals / Memorials

We don’t like to think about the end of life. The truth, however, is that we all will pass from this lifetime ~ as will all our family, friends and pets. Honoring those who have passed is a necessity for those left behind. You can be sure that I will treat each situation with respect, discretion and compassion.

If you work with me in another capacity, feel free to start a discussion with me about your end of life choices. Of course, you are also welcome to contact me after the death of a loved one to arrange a service in their honor.

 

 

In all things, in all times, on all occasions, I wish you safety, health, happiness and peace of mind and heart.

A Note about Money

There is a large amount of discussion in spiritual provider circles around whether to charge for one’s services.

There are some spiritual providers who are supported by an institution – a denomination, a particular church, a hospital, a charity, a monastery, a house of prayer, etc. Typically those who are supported in this way will ask for either donations or smaller fees. Sometimes the charges are dependent on whether the client is a member of the institution, and therefore supporting the provider’s work in a different fashion.

There are other spiritual providers, such as Rev. Carrie, who are not supported in this way. By staying “independent,” Rev. Carrie is able to travel to serve clients, set her own schedule, decide on her own offerings and see clients in many different locations, among other benefits. In order for this independence to be feasible, Rev. Carrie does charge her clients appropriate fees for service.

On this ‘Offerings’ page, we will list any fees for sessions / workshops that are currently accepting registrations. Please feel free to use the “Contact the Rev” page information to ask for information including fees for any other services.
