Heather Ruce

WISDOM SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR

About Me

I work with individuals in Wisdom Spiritual Direction and facilitate wisdom practice circles, groups, retreats, and wisdom schools. I offer teaching and guidance in various wisdom and mindfulness practices including Centering Prayer, Christian meditation, sacred chanting, lectio divina, conscious work and embodiment. I have had many companions, guides, and teachers along the way, all of whom have contributed to who I am and the work that I do. My work is especially informed by the teachings of Cynthia Bourgeault in the Christian Wisdom Tradition, Steve Hoskinson in the integration of trauma healing and complexity science through his model Organic Intelligence, and my master’s degree training in marriage and family therapy.
