SDI Encounters

Ep020 - Leaning into Holy Hybridity - Karen Erlichman - Part 2

June 10, 2019

Karen Lee Erlichman provides psychotherapy, spiritual direction and mentoring in San Francisco, integrating spiritual practices and body-centered resources to support healing. 

This episode is part 2 of our conversation with Karen. In Part 1 from last week, Karen shared her personal story, and how she discerned vocational calling. It’s interesting to hear Karen describe her journey as a ‘hybrid’ –– a phenomenon of discerning that one’s true identity is fluid, and moves into, out of, and between, many various categories and vocations, without being pinned down into any of them.

NOTES - The website Karen says in our conversation that she references frequently. It's full of resources on the work of a spiritual director, how to find a spiritual director, and for those who are curious about spiritual direction in general.
