pursue a life of beauty
We all carry questions, pain, joy, and curiosity in our bodies, hearts, and mind.
Let’s journey together deeper into love and wellness.
Magdalene is a pursuer of all things beautiful, inviting others into a life with steady integration of all they say, think, act, eat, love, and enjoy–hopeful for a more rooted, peaceful existence, both inside and out. Today, she offers spiritual direction, movement and yoga classes, and women’s retreats, incorporating contemplative Christian spiritual practices, contemporary and authentic movement, imaginative experiences, and the ancient way of yoga (with a fun side job of lifestyle and commercial photography). Past students and directees have joked that there are few others in the world as dedicated to boundaries, intentionality, rest, and weird voices as Maggie.
Magdalene grew up on a small organic sustainable farm in central Indiana, raised in a family of avid readers, generous doers, truth seekers, and good food lovers. Those early experiences laid a great foundation for further mind-body-soul integrative training at Hope College (BA in English and Arts Ministry), Fall Creek Abbey (Certified Spiritual Director), and BodyWorks Studio (200hr YTT).
If she’s doing exactly what she wants, you will probably find her on a porch, patio, or beach, drink in hand, dancing away or chatting about life and love and happiness with all her people, especially her partner Jeff and their three kiddos.
What is Spiritual Direction?
Life is full of spiritual uncertainty—situations in which we are unsure of who God is, confused about what God is doing in our circumstances, or generally dry in our relationship with God. Spiritual direction is a safe place to explore your questions and concerns about your life and God in a safe, loving, explorative environment, incorporating movement and imagination.
You take photos too?
Yes! I specialize in lifestyle and commercial photography. I would love to have the honor of capturing a true reflection of you, your work, or your family. I consider it just another way of journeying with you in pursuing life lived well and full of beauty. Contact me for details or quotes and let’s create something beautiful together!
