Vision Led Change - Kelly O'Shea Carney S'22

In my own spiritual journey, I have had the privilege of being accompanied by wise, spiritual elders who were able to teach and guide me along the way. Having deeply appreciated the value of accompaniment on the spiritual path, I am honored to travel with others as a spiritual director and companion at this point in my life. Grounded in the teachings of the great wisdom traditions, and trusting that the Spirit is truly the guide of every spiritual journey, I bring skills as a trained listener and experienced spiritual seeker to support those I companion.

I offer individual or small group spiritual direction. The individual, or the individuals of a group, share something stirring in their lives. We take time who notice where God is Present or moving through our hearts. It is a contemplative practice of story, silence, and reflection, always attending to Spirit.

"Spiritual Direction for All" is for all who are seeking God in real-life experiences. I provide a safe space, for individuals and groups, in-person or online, where you can share "how it is with your soul," and God can speak into the ear of your heart. My experience includes Spiritual Direction for persons of all ages, from various faith backgrounds, pastors of numerous denominations, the "dones" and "nones," and the LGBTQA+ community, family, and friends.

Service Location: I offer Spiritual Direction on zoom and in-person. In-person is offered at various locations on the Delmarva Peninsula (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia Eastern Shore) at churches, retreat centers, libraries, parks, and other safe spaces.
