Deb Arndt

When I first discovered spiritual direction in 2007, I felt I’d found a home for my deepest longings. These longings were rooted in the desire to know the truth of my belovedness, to experience God in the midst of what was real and raw in my human experience, and to grow in the transforming grace and awareness of myself in relationship with the Trinity. My spiritual director held space for me to make room for these longings and I knew I desired to offer that same kind of gentle and hospitable presence for others. Since completing the Art of Spiritual Direction training with SoulStream in 2009, I’ve had the sacred privilege of companioning others in this way.

I live on an acreage outside of Saskatoon, SK, where sunrises and sunsets frame my days and bring me much joy. I find nature, belly laughs, making deep connections with others, encountering life through reading, co-facilitating retreats and courses, learning, good food and drink, good company and especially my husband and our adult kids. I find all of these to be very life-giving.
