Neurodiversity-positive, nonsectarian spiritual direction and community-building for misfits and rebels.
I am autistic (or maybe I am).
Spiritual direction supports you in deepening your faith/spiritual life. Despite the word "direction," I am not here to give you directions. Rather, using active listening and thought-provoking questions, we explore and clarify your belief systems, your values, and your goals.
I'm a faith community leader.
Resources for ministers and faith communities
Mind Geographic also makes available resources and information for congregational leaders.
I am a curious seeker.
Educating the masses about theology and its social impact
Willow Loves Theology! is an educational program for curious seekers of all or no faiths to learn the key concepts and history of theology, as well as theology's contribution to our culture, society, and civilization.
Raising an army of prophets.
As autistics, we're quite a gift to the world, the silent elite squad that this planet needs to save itself (think Greta Thunberg). We smell bullshit from a hundred miles away. We've got no time for "nuances," hypocrisies and other excuses. We tend to be brutally logical and rational, yet exceedingly capable of creative out-of-the-box thinking. We're very much detail-oriented but we see the big picture.
You can be the next great prophet, world-changer, innovator, or culture-maker. It's time that we stopped apologizing to neurotypicals for not fitting into their narrow social norms.
Neurodiversity is the next frontier in religious communities. Yet, neurodiversity is, unfortunately, discouraged in most communal expressions of spiritual life.
We've been told to shut up, that we're making people "uncomfortable." We've been made unwelcome. We've been coerced into silly woo-woo exercises, excessive emotionalism, ableist mindset, and rigid gender norms that made no sense to us.
They operate from assumptions that are entirely foreign to how our minds process things.
Come to think of it, every one of us has a rich, unique, complex terrain within our mind. Especially in the neurodiverse community, we often think of our minds as a world in its own right.
Trek the amazing inner geography of your mind and soul like an explorer.
I'm simply here to facilitate your quest and to help make sense of it all, building upon your own uniqueness as the foundation for your strengths.
And as I meet each of you, I know that we're building an army of prophets at this challenging juncture in human history. Come join me.

Mind Geographic wishes to acknowledge this land on which we operate. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Tsinuk (Chinook), Clatskanie, Atfalati (Tualatin), and Stl’pulmsh (Cowlitz) nations. Today, this place is still the home to many indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
