GRACE OF NOW – FACILITATORS
Maureen Kramlinger knows change: life in community, married with children, re-located to Florida, widowed — with life renewed after every loss. Graduate Biblical Studies, counselor and pastoral education and life over time led Maureen to engage in teaching, addiction counseling, adult faith formation, hospice chaplaincy and grief care. She prepared for a new life in retirement with Shalem formation programs for leading prayer of simple presence, retreats, facilitating spiritual deepening and spiritual guidance. Maureen is awed to be able to offer holy listening in spiritual direction and supervision and to facilitate programs for Audire. She is eager to begin Exploring the Grace of Now with new spiritual companions.
