Vanessa Hawkins 

My journey into spirituality was sparked during my seminary studies and during my service as a mission partner at a small South African Anglican seminary where I was encouraged to engage in spiritual practices. The seminary’s approach to spiritual formation arrayed before me a rich tapestry of spiritual practices that moved me to pay closer attention to God’s presence in my life.

In a spiritual direction session, I seek to engage a person’s heart and mind through the art of contemplative listening which helps us to tap into an inner knowing—a deeper intuitive knowledge that enables one to follow the blowing of the Spirit. I have practiced spiritual direction since earning a Diploma in the Art of Spiritual Direction from San Francisco Theological Seminary in 2014.
