Lori J. Wilson

Spiritual Director, Supervisor.

Stamford, CT, USA

Lori Wilson has been a spiritual director since 2007 and knows that this ministry is sacred ground. She holds a BA in psychology, an MA in religious studies from St. Joseph’s Seminary, and an MA in curriculum and instruction. She received her training as a spiritual director, supervisor, and director of the 19th Annotation from Fairfield University. Lori has been a director of faith formation, theology teacher, director of campus ministry and service, and theology chair and retreat director for students and adults. She has authored and published several books and has been a principal of an inner-city Catholic school and a pastoral associate of a large parish in Greenwich. Lori often looks to the quiet of the outdoors to connect with God, especially while on her kayak or hiking.

Gregory Vigliotta, MA

Spiritual Director, Supervisor

Delaware, US

My ministry and practice is focused on accompanying you in your spiritual journey and your desire to grow in deeper intimacy with God through Jesus Christ in three ways:

A Prayer Companion in Faith: I listen and share faith experiences, guide you on basic methods for praying and reflecting on interior experience and use my knowledge and experience to listen with you to the movements of the Holy Spirit in your daily life.

Ignatian Retreat and Prayer Guide: I accompany you through directed retreat experiences as you seek to grow in faith and intimacy with God through prayer and contemplation on Sacred Scripture. I offer basic instruction on various methods of Prayer from the Catholic Ignatian Tradition.

Spiritual Direction: I am attentive with you and to the movements of your relationship with God utilizing my training as a Spiritual Director and Director of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius. Through active and empathetic listening, I help you discern who God means for you to become and what is the best action to take.  This process of discernment is coming to a decision after prayerful attention to heart, head, and hand on what will bring an increase of faith, hope, and love.

Karen Shields Wright, MS,DC,DM

Spiritual Director, Clinican

Greenwich CT

As an Ignatian-trained spiritual director and retired clinician, my ministry practice focus is cura personalis.  It's listening with you (together with the Holy Spirit) to where you sense God is drawing you towards and sharing what I studied from the teachings and wisdom within the Church’s spiritual tradition. Moreover, I am here to help you understand how God designed us and to care for your body, as well as your soul, for giving glory to God in a life of prayer to discover God's desires for you to flourish in service with Christ.

 

May my years of clinical experience and ongoing studies in evidence-based well-care, stress management, and spiritual care, with a focus on the Ignatian tradition, offer you the support you seek.

This site was initially developed to be a place for downloadable handouts for university students in spiritual direction; it grew slowly into much more for my other clients and retreatants, which you now see today.

I hope you find new ways or reminders to refresh and care for your soul.

Margaret Meisen, M.S. Ed.

Spiritual Director

Long Island, NY

As a Spiritual Director, it brings me great joy to accompany others on their journey toward God. I offer hospitality and presence by listening to those who may find themselves at a crossroad, are seeking greater discernment and a deeper, closer relationship to God. I offer resources for various forms of prayer from the Catholic Ignatian and Benedictine traditions that foster freedom, clarity and growth in Jesus Christ.


In my diocese and parish community, I offer workshops and facilitate groups that incorporate creative arts with spirituality. My involvement in couple's spirituality for the past 30 years, has helped me appreciate the vital role that community can play in a person’s spiritual growth. Working as a public and a Catholic school educator of elementary and college students has complimented my practice with organization, perspective and richness.
