welcome

patty forsberg spiritual direction

I work with individuals and groups as a spiritual director.  I teach centering prayer, welcoming prayer, enneagram, compassion, bio-spiritual focusing. I lead workshops and retreats. I have had many teachers, companions and guides along the way - beginning with Christian and expanding to masters and mystics from many traditions.

My work is especially formed by focusing, enneagram, trauma healing, and the emerging we-space. Writing and drawing is also an important part of my journey and some of my efforts can be found on this site. I have also come to see the truth of the Thich Nhat Hanh's words: The next Buddha may be a Sangha. On the resources page are a few of these communities I am personally involved with.

Love  

is the most universal,

the most tremendous

and the most mystical of cosmic forces. 

Love is the primal and universal psychic energy.

Love is a sacred reserve of energy.

It  is like the blood of spiritual evolution. 

~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

"Sometimes being real means allowing pain or accepting a painful truth. Yet something in us aligns with an inner ground of authenticity when we are real. We love it because of its inherent rightness in our soul, the sense of “Aha, here I am and there is nothing to do but be."
