Marlene has been formed as a giver of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius and as a spiritual director in the Ignatian tradition.

She companions and co-discerns with others who seek to hear God’s invitation of love towards authentic and loving service.

Marlene’s particular interest is helping to guide and maintain a grace-filled disposition at the edge between known and unknown. Marlene believes that everything a person needs and desires at the deepest levels of personhood can be unlocked and enacted through God’s grace.
