Tara Brach

American psychologist, author,

and proponent of Buddhist meditation



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 supports "In Our Back Yard", a non-profit organization against human trafficking.  

She also supports her local food bank and Bethlehem Inn, homeless shelter.  Her own path is through the wisdom tradition of 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!

The Butterfly....

Made to soar....

It is the butterfly story of 

transformation that has inspired my "work" in contemplative spirituality.  Through the Christian Contemplative 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"!  


A Christian???

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 became involved in Christianity in my late 30's.  The path took many twists and turns from fundamental Christianity, necessary at that time in my life, to now landing on the contemplative path which feels like coming home.  But what does all this 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 LOVE, God is RELATIONSHIP as shown through the Trinity and that God’s desire is to have an intimate relationship with each of us.  I continue to learn from different faith traditions and find that at the higher level of consciousness we have more in common than what separates us.  And oh, by the way, I will never impose my beliefs on you.
