“Listen and attend with the ear of your heart.”

– Saint Benedict of Nursia

As humans we benefit from having companions along our spiritual journey. A spiritual guide is someone who helps you notice and name God’s presence in your life. You might come to spiritual guidance to reflect more intentionally on your experiences or to discern some decisions in your life.

Distinct from counseling, the goal of spiritual guidance is not to solve life’s problems, but rather to increase awareness of how God is already active in your life. 

We have members of our community who are trained in spiritual coaching/spiritual direction and we also engage with a wider network of spiritual directors. We would be happy to refer you for spiritual guidance.  For more information contact christina@foundry414.com .


Once a quarter we facilitate contemplative retreats open to

people across the Midwest.  

Hosted at Holy Wisdom Monastery, each retreat offers an opportunity to unplug for a day while enjoying a beautiful setting in nature with like-minded people seeking to deepen their spiritual lives.  

The retreats are especially geared for people new to spiritual practices, providing a blend of guided reflection as well as plenty of personal time.

Our next retreat is November 16, 2019, from 9:30-4 pm

Co-facilitated by Christina Roberts & Sarah Bianchi.

Early bird registration (through Oct 26) is $65.   

Late registration is $85.
