I have been in Spiritual Direction (SD) and practicing the techniques of prayerful listening with my own community for over 20 years. Contemplative practices have been a central part of my journey for much of my adult life. In 2015 I left a successful technical consulting career. My heart, mind, and soul were being drawn deeper into contemplative practices. I am a graduate of Christos, a facilitator of their Distance SD program, member of the Covenant SD network, SD International, a licensed bi-vocational Covenant pastor, pastor for Covenant Enabling Residents (CER) https://www.kjporten.com/
