There are moments when you stand on the brink of a new experience and understand that you have no choice about it. Either you walk into the experience or you turn away from it, but you know that no matter what you choose, you will have altered your life in a permanent way. Either way, there will be consequences.
— Dennis Covington, Salvation on Sand Mountain

It remains the dream of every life to realize itself, to reach out and lift oneself up to greater heights. A life that continues to remain on the safe side of its own habits and repetitions, that never engages with the risk of its own possibility, remains an unlived life.
— John O’Donohue


We are all in constant transition; from sleep to being awake, from home to work, silence to noise.  We are often, too, in deeper stages of transition between roles or positions in our lives: leaving for college, from being single to married, launching into parenthood, changing dynamics of relationships, and vocational shifts that we may choose or have chosen for us.

Each of these transitions bring questions that are often larger or deeper than we can carry on our own, though we try.  The space between what we knew to be and the coming not yet is what we might call a neutral space; an experience of unsettledness, of fear and uncertainty.  

We need a listening ear and a safe place to bring these weighty questions.  We need guides who will listen with us and for us and hold the questions alongside us to help us explore what is essentially new territory.

Are you currently experiencing or anticipating a transition in your vocation, relationships or your internal sense of identity? A shared conversation about the challenges and opportunities can be an important step in discerning the direction or path you may need to consider.

For more than 30 years Dane has been guiding and facilitating discernment conversations, helping others to explore their deeper sense of direction or calling.
