Laurie Smith, M.Div., is a healer, artist, and lifelong learner who loves to play in the intersection of art and the sacred. Through compassionate listening and creative exploration, she helps others deepen their connection with the Divine, believing that within each seeker there is a rich source of wisdom already present. As a spiritual companion, Laurie holds stories of life journeys with deep reverence, providing a safe and nurturing space for exploration and reflection. Her own spiritual journey, grounded in both Buddhist practice and Benedictine spirituality, has been enriched through interfaith/interspiritual curiosity and respect.
In addition to a Master of Divinity degree from Marylhurst University, Laurie received her certificate in Interfaith Spiritual Direction from the Chaplaincy Institute for Arts and Interfaith Ministries in Berkeley, California. She is also a SoulCollage® facilitator, trained by Seena Frost (the founder of the SoulCollage process). Laurie has led workshops in the Pacific Northwest and has co-led retreats in Washington state and on the isle of Iona, Scotland.
A native of Oregon, Laurie is currently living on the Upper Chesapeake region of Maryland. She loves to hike, make art, and be continually awestruck by the natural world!
Spiritual direction is available via Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, or by phone.
