The Spirit of Presentations

This piece from Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel "Creation" reminds each one of us of our own intimate relationship with God.

My presentations and workshops focus on Spiritual Renewal. They are offered in the spirit of St. Paul’s instruction,“…put away the old self and put on the new self.” (Eph 4:22) We seek our ‘new self’ by connecting with our deepest self –who we really are, known full only by God.The main types are Mornings of Reflection,Spiritual Autobiography Workshops and Lectio Divina presentations and workshops.
