Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is a means of deepening our awareness of sacred presence in our lives. In our work, we will slow down to notice of moments of connection in your life, and to discern how you are being called to greater meaning. I will serve as witness and supportive companion on your journey (sometimes by asking questions, sometimes just by listening), helping you discern sacred connections where you might have missed them and to integrate that awareness into your daily life.

I meet with Spiritual Direction clients for one-hour sessions, either at my home office on the East Side of Providence or at an office in Newton, a western suburb of Boston. Most people meet with me every third or fourth week, though some find it helpful to meet more frequently. Depending on the specific circumstances, I am sometimes open to sitting with someone on the phone or on Skype; usually that works only when we have established a prior in-person relationship.

Rabbi Adam’s presence in my life was a true gift, allowing me to grow spiritually, and to deepen my connection to Judaism in a personally meaningful way. He was accepting, encouraging, compassionate, wise, Jewishly knowledgeable, and supportive. As a psychologist who has been in practice for decades, I went into our work together wondering whether we would be a good match. After our first meeting, and after every meeting thereafter, I felt blessed — understood, spiritually expanded, and grateful for our work together. Rabbi Adam’s ability to listen, and to create a “makom kadosh”, a holy and safe place for exploring personal spiritual issues, is remarkable!
