Spiritual Inquiry

“God is the name of the infinite and inexhaustible depth and ground of our being. That depth is what the word God means. And if the word “God” has not much meaning for you, translate it, and speak of the depths of your life, of the source of your being, of your ultimate concern, of what you take seriously without any reservation. Perhaps, in order to do so, you must forget everything traditional that you have learned about God, perhaps even that word itself. For if you know that God means the infinite depth of your being, you know much about Him.” —Paul Tillich

Spiritual inquiry focuses on your relationship to God as the immanent and transcendent Ground of all Being. You have an inner teacher already present in your depths, which can guide you in your quest to know who and what you are.  Spiritual inquiry involves listening to the guidance.

My approach is based on the “perennial philosophy,” which tells us the world’s religions share a single truth: there is an eternal Self in the depth of particular, individualized selves that is identical with, or at least akin to, the divine Ground. The purpose of every human being is to discover this fact for him or herself.

The spiritual journey is the most significant endeavor many of us will ever undertake. The search for spiritual truth involves facing everything that interferes with truth. We have to recognize and let go of our mistaken identity, which blocks recognition of our true identity.

Fortunately we don’t have to do it alone. A spiritually oriented therapist will point out things you may be unable to see because they are too close to your unconscious personal beliefs and emotional convictions. A spiritually oriented therapist will also encourage your discernment. I will walk with you, encourage you to listen to your inner teacher, and support you in your endeavor to awaken.
