You who seek, yearn, and long for Spirit, welcome!
I am Rev. Catharine Clarenbach. Welcome to The Way of the River.
You are welcome, all seekers for Spirit.
You are welcome, all who desire deeper spiritual practice and relationship.
You are welcome, who wonder whether there might be value in a practice of meditation, prayer, or some other daily routine.
You are welcome, you who yearn deeply to know and love the Mystery that is within and beyond you, whether you have a religious tradition or not.
You are welcome, LGBTQ+ siblings longing for spiritual support in a world that has often rejected and wounded us.
You are welcome, no matter what kind of wanderer, what kind of seeker after the Sacred you are.
I can help you explore these desires for depth and meaning, support, care for, and help along the way of your own path.
I offer you the chance to find your own deep desire, meaning, purpose, and wisdom.
I offer you the time and space to explore discernment, wisdom from various spiritual traditions of the world, and ways of developing a spirituality of the seasons. Seasons of a year. Seasons of a project. Seasons of a life.
If you are intrigued by what you read here, I invite you to visit my blog page and read more about what I do, or simply sign up in the box to the left for Reflections, a weekly contemplative love letter.
You are welcome.
