The following is a list of Spiritual Directors who have both deep knowledge of and experience with the work of Caroline Myss and will be following along in the Reflections coursework with you. Some directors meet with clients one-on-one and most also conduct sessions via Skype, FaceTime or by phone. Note when making an appointment that Caroline and Jim are on the West Coast (Pacific time zone), while Julie, Liz and Meryl are on the East Coast (Eastern time zone). Heath and Lorena are located in the Midwest (Central time zone).
Most of my life has been devoted to a spiritual journey with many wise teachers and teachings including Agni Yoga (I taught light-fire meditation for several years), Thomas Keating’s Contemplative Prayer (have practiced for many years), Jean Houston (Mystery School and Salon), Caroline Myss (Sacred Contracts, Entering the Castle) and Leonard Jacobson (Journey into Now), and the books of the late mystic, Joel Goldsmith (The Infinite Way and The Art of Spiritual Healing). I’ve also taken workshops in Buddhist and Hindu meditation as well as Jon Kabat Zinn’s Mind Based Stress Release (MBSR). I am a graduate of Spiritual Director training at The Spirituality Center at Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles.
As a Spiritual Director my job is to be a midwife for the Soul by holding a space so that a birthing of the Actual Self can shine forth. I enjoy working with clients of all faiths in a non-judgmental atmosphere of acceptance and active listening in order that we may hear that “still small voice” within and be “ripe for the experience of healing.”
I love when clients experience Oneness or discover new insights that release roadblocks on their Spiritual Journeys. What a joy and privilege this work is. I work with clients on the phone, Skype, or in person in my home office in Ventura, California (between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles).

My path to being a Spiritual Director reveals the surprising way that spirit can move when one listens. For decades, I had a career as a marketing executive and business owner in which I developed a strong foundation in attentive listening, clear language, and intuitively reading people and situations.
Through a series of synchronistic events, I was introduced to the work of Caroline Myss and began studying with her in 2004 when I enrolled in Sacred Contracts and later, Entering the Castle. The work resonated deeply with me and that spiritual journey eventually led me to study as a spiritual director. I trained for three years at The Spirituality Center at Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, CA and began my practice as a Spiritual Director in 2011. Many of my directees have studied with Caroline, so incorporating the language of her work is often a key part of my approach to direction.

My first encounter with Caroline Myss inspired me to become a Spiritual Director. I trained for three years in a program sponsored by the Catholic archdiocese of Los Angeles. After completing the training, I opened my spiritual direction practice in 2001. That same year, Caroline invited me to teach with her from time to time. Subsequently I have taught with Caroline at the Omega Institute and I have been on the faculty of CMED since its inception in 2003. I offer in-person sessions as well as sessions via phone and Skype. The majority of my directees are students of Caroline’s teachings which motivated me to develop a spiritual direction practice that includes references to Sacred Contracts and Entering the Castle. My education includes eight years with the Jesuits and my personal spiritual practice is rooted in that training. I’ve studied with Father Richard Rohr and done an internship at the Center for Action and Contemplation which he founded. I teach workshops and lead retreats in the United States and Europe.

The first half of my life, I practiced full spectrum nursing from trauma to hospice. My medical background and hands-on experience with patient care provided the foundation needed to develop rapid-fire intuition, absolute compassion, and the ability to aid in the healing of the spirit.
Spending more than twelve years of deep, contemplative introspection and ten years in the classroom with Caroline Myss helped me to unite the physical and spiritual worlds. I was part of the inaugural team of Archetypal Consultants certified by the Caroline Myss Educational Institute (CMED) in 2004, which ultimately led me to the path of Spiritual Direction and energy reading. I’ve been practicing privately since 2004. I have worked with hundreds of CMED students.
My training has been in the Christian tradition but I work with all faiths and spiritual backgrounds. For more information, see interiorvoyage.com/about-julie.html

As a Spiritual Director and Intuitive Counselor, my primary responsibility is to be a highly sensitive listener. This is crucial to enable me to formulate questions that will encourage my clients to explore the depths of their soul and ultimately achieve attunement with their Divine nature. Essential to my own contemplative practice are the insights I gain by engaging in Transcendental Meditation on a daily basis.
My clients’ confidence in me rests on a solid foundation. Highlights of my 30 years’ experience as a healing arts practitioner include graduation from several CMED courses as well as certifications from Dr. Leonard Laskow’s School of Holoenergetic Healing and The Upledger Institute for Craniosacral Therapy and Somato Emotional Release Work. I’m especially proud to be among the first graduates of Caroline Myss and Dr. Norm Shealy’s exclusive four-year counseling program “The Institute of Scientific Medical Intuition.” This program and subsequent studies with Caroline continue to inspire my work.
In addition to conducting telephone and Skype consultations worldwide, I meet with clients in my South Florida offices.
Rev. Heath Missner
I have been immersed in the work of Caroline Myss since 2003-4, when I first studied Sacred Contracts with her in Chicago. I am a Spiritual Director, trained at the Institute for Spiritual Leadership in Chicago. In Spiritual Direction I will hold the space for you to come into your own knowing of how the Divine is at work in your life. A number of Caroline’s students have been in direction with me for the past 6-8 years. While very open to all faith traditions, and to the inner pathway of the Spirit at work within us, my roots are in the Episcopal Church; I serve as Deacon in a church north of Chicago. Also, I am an Oblate of the Order of Julian of Norwich, and I have a contemplative practice.

Lorena Williams offers individual clients her creative blend of psychotherapy, spiritual direction and craniosacral work. Trained as a psychotherapist, Spiritual Director, and bodyworker, Lorena practices the gentle art of listening. Clarity comes from stillness; eyes, ears and hands become the extension of the heart, opening to deep presence and the whisper of the client’s spiritual journey.
Through the gift of seeing others clearly and non-judgmentally, Lorena helps others uncover their own inner knowing. Sessions involve mindful, gentle conversation. Craniosacral work is a silent meditative experience. During each session clients can expect a deep unwinding, the arrival of stillness, the ebb revealing the depth of their heart’s longing.
