I'm wearing a sweater and socks as I write. The weather has definitely entered into that unsettled pattern of fluctuating between steamy hot days and rainy cool ones. We know where this is heading and I am trying to enjoy the warm days as well as the cozy fall feeling ones. This week I am thinking about change. I'm saying goodbye to a good friend who is moving on to a new adventure in her life. I'm contemplating my work and how I'm finding my voice in this new direction. I'm thinking about what I want in this next season of life.
When we are in the middle of changes we needed to have a good way to discern what is best for us in our current situation. I had the opportunity to interview Nancy Bieber this week on Reframe Your Life. Nancy Bieber is the author of Decision Making & Spiritual Discernment The Sacred Art of Finding Your Way. She is a spiritual director, psychologist, retreat leader, and teacher. She writes out of her many years’ experience of working with people, offering insights, exercises and guidance. She served on the teaching staff of Oasis Ministries for Spiritual Development for 21 years and developed their program Contemplative Living in Daily Life. Nancy is an active member of the Religious Society of Friends (also known as Quakers). She has led retreats and workshops on spiritual discernment, and deepening our spiritual lives for groups in the United States, as well as in New Zealand and England.
