testimony (spiritual direction)
Sitting with Rev. Tamayo-DeWitt in spiritual direction and prayer has been for me a breath of fresh air. The traditions she draws upon from Africa, the Caribbean and progressive Christianity greatly inform her work and natural abilities. She has modeled to me how to serve God and others on their journey. Her quiet strength of presence is powerful, like a poignant melody of orchestrated notes.
Her prayers are deeply intuitive as well, and Sonsiris seems able to call forth from me the desires of my heart–those spoken and unspoken. Together we have prayed for my betterment: to have my fears soothed, to be cleansed of past heartache and pain, to be uplifted in the present, and to remain inspired as I set my face toward my future.
For anyone seeking spiritual direction, I recommend her highly.
