The deeper journey to your True Self
Ricky Gregerson, as a graduate of the Franciscan Spiritual Center in Milwaukie, OR., received her training and certification as a Spiritual Director. She is also a commissioned, Centering Prayer Presenter for Contemplative Outreach, LTD, and a Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator. Ricky is passionate about ending modern day slavery and volunteers at "In Our Back Yard", a non-profit organization against human trafficking.
She also serves breakfasts at The Backdoor, for the homeless. Her own path is through contemplative Christianity.
She is inclusive, non-dualistic, and honors other faith traditions
beyond her own. In her spare time, Ricky enjoys cooking, art classes, yoga, walking, hiking and cross-country skiing. But what brings her peace and joy beyond the "doing", is her relationship to all of creation. She is mesmerized by the mirrored pond, melts in the presence of puppy cuteness, and loves the heart of a friend, willing to risk being vulnerable. What does Ricky think would make the world a better place? Loving kindness and more laughter!
Made to soar....
It is the butterfly story of
transformation that has inspired my "work" in contemplative spirituality. Through the Christian Wisdom Tradition and experiential faith, I have learned that the journey of great love and great suffering, are the two normal and primary paths of transformation into God and ultimately, Divine Love. I have had the honor of studying and receiving spiritual direction under some of today's best spiritual guides and theologians. Now it is my heart's desire to pass on this beautiful gift of spiritual
companionship to others in search of union with the Divine. I offer spiritual direction as a facilitator in groups, in personal relationships and in the world. Whether you are struggling, stuck, wondering where God is, or just need a place to "be" with the questions, it is my desire to help guide you on your journey. Whether you are looking for a prayer community or one-on-one Spiritual Direction, I have the resources to help you take the first step. You truly are enough! Together, we can discover the Peace your soul desires. All it takes is a "yes"!
I believe all of us act out whatever is inside of us. Whatever we think, whatever we hear…that’s the behavior we’ll display. I am a Christian. What does that mean? It means I try to live my life doing what Jesus did; trying to make the world a better place. God is love and God’s love is toward EVERYONE, it is inclusive. I believe God is RELATIONSHIP as shown through the Trinity and that God’s desire is to have an intimate relationship with each of us. I believe death is not the end. Jesus rose from the dead. I have a deep knowing that there is always, always hope and to never give up. As a Christian, I am a marathon runner and not a sprinter. I must have the perseverance to keep going. Oh, and by the way...I will never impose my beliefs on you!*
