Lisa Thoren


About Me

I am a Certified Spiritual Companion (similiar to Spiritual Director) and am being trained as a Commissioned Centering Prayer Presenter.  I will be offering Spiritual Companioning Services virtually/online through Zoom, Google Meet, or FaceTime.  Please see my contact page for availability!

Spiritual Companioning (similiar to Spiritual Direction) offers a space for one to listen to the "still small voice" of God (1 Kings 19:12).  In the paraphrased words of St. Teresa of Avila, during Spiritual Companioning one can get to know another and "consult" them, so that "we may learn to know ourselves."  Finally, in the words of St. John Paul II, through the grace of God working between two people, Spiritual Companioning can help a person, "Become who [they] are."

By working with a Spiritual Companion, one can: begin to find their calling; listen to their heart; navigate the difficult and/or confusing parts of the spiritual journey; get clarity; get fresh perspectives; learn new prayer methods; question the existence of God; relish blessings received; and anything in between . . .

I've been in a relationship with God for as long as I can remeber!  There have definately been difficult moments.  I think these difficult times allow me to relate to people who are struggling.  I am a Certified Spiritual Companion through UW-Green Bay, and have begun the process to become a Comissioned Centering Prayer Presenter.  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Marquette University, and a deep prayer and religious life.
