Bess Farrell enjoys being invited into the spiritual lives of others through deep listening within the spiritual direction relationship. Entering into the sacred space of Spiritual direction, both giving and receiving spiritual direction, is both a privilege and a holy moment for Bess. A three decade experience in cross-cultural ministry, a master’s degree in Spiritual Formation and Leadership, and a growing familiarity with the Enneagram allow Bess the foundational rooting and grounding to listen well and support and encourage the life of God in the directee. Daily increasing awareness of the presence of God in the ordinary in her own life has been the energy that has called Bess into this ministry of accompanying others in their spiritual pilgrimage. Bess is continuing to journey in her own spiritual life through monthly receiving Spiritual Direction and regular supervision of her own offering of Spiritual Direction. She is open to offer the gift of Spiritual Direction through face-to-face or online meetings.
