M.A. in Interfaith Ministry

& Spiritual Leadership

PhD Candidate in Practical Theology: Spiritual Formation and Education


I have my  M.A. in Interfaith Ministry and Spiritual Leadership and I am a PhD candidate in Spiritual Formation at Claremont School of Theology.

My studies embrace the spiritual practices of many of the major faith traditions: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Jainsim and Hinduism as well as Earth based rite and ritual.  I am also a Wilderness Rites-of-Passage guide and trained as a medical Wilderness First Responder.

My calling is to work in sacred ceremony, and as a spiritual director for individuals and retreat groups.

I am also an activist and author.  As an eco-feminist theologian I raise the issue of equality for women among faith traditions and I actively engage to protect this sacred garden we call planet Earth.


A universe where your thoughts, words and actions change the world every moment,

No matter who you are or where you are from, no one is excluded.  Your prayers ripple into a vision that we create together.

You have a specific purpose written in your heart;

a truth that you are called to live, to breathe, to dance, to sing, to be.

Taking on your rightful place in creation will empower you, energize you and set you free.

Spiritual direction can help you explore your life journey as sacred journey.

This book is based on a 40 day and 40 night solo spiritual journey in the Mojave Desert that I completed in August of 2016.  I am publishing chapter by chapter online as I write about the experience.  I am also releasing a podcast of the chapters.
