is creating a sanctuary where we can speak about the hard things
Welcome to the HeartWork Community.

A blend of spiritual guidance, mentorship, and counselling, the HeartWork community is a place where you can ask the hard questions and find a path to a life that is free, fulfilling and fruitful.

Sometimes we can’t touch the sunrise within us because we are numb from the effort to keep pushing through the wounding of present or past situations and events in our life. But at a certain point, we can’t ignore our heart’s desire for more.

What is HeartWork
Here at the HeartWork Community we learn a simple and practical process of watchfulness “at the door of your heart” in the spirit of the Eastern Fathers, who teach that the process for healing the heart is through a patient and sacred watchfulness which gives rise to the deep experience of wonder that bubbles up from the heart.

Everything you need to do HeartWork is right here, and you can participate as little or as much as you like. Let me explain….

For the past twenty years I've written about moving through our brokenness into the light of God. My best-selling title based on my own experience, Surviving Depression: A Catholic Approach, has been translated into 12 languages and is in its third edition. My newest book, Reclaim Regret: How God Heals Life's Disappointments, has just been released. For years I’ve offered HeartWork personally on an individual basis to whoever wants to pursue the hard questions in their own life and grow in an integrated spiritual-human formation. As much as that has helped people over the years, I realize that many more people could benefit from HeartWork if there were various ways a person could access the program. I so believe that HeartWork can help people that I want to make it available to as many as possible.



Choose the Best Option for You

Getting Started

Everyone who comes to the HeartWork Community page here can post hard questions and receive the bi-weekly reflective posts/letters that grapple with these issues. Weekly I post a podcast that is available to everyone.

If you want more then...

Explore HeartWork Yourself

Besides what is available freely on the HeartWork Community, take advantage of the growing library of over 50 audio and video programs and guides on spirituality and prayer, and receive the Bullet Journal Pages for Spiritual growth monthly for just $2 a month.

HeartWork MasterConference

This tier gives you access to me. Besides everything we’ve mentioned you will also receive a monthly MasterConference on the tools and spiritual formation of the HeartWork program. In these monthly HeartWork MasterConferences we’ll thoroughly explore how the HeartWork formation can bring you greater inner peace as you walk through the sticky areas of your own heart and life. But we’ll do it in tiny chunks so you have to a chance to truly incorporate them into your life. That’s where the momentum happens and what makes it different from simply talking about your issues and questions and getting someone’s take on the situation and would they think you should do.

I’ll provide videos, written exercises, and answer questions so that you can do the “work” of HeartWork and experience the joy at last of a free heart.



And I’ll double that by giving you access to MY SISTERS. We Daughters of St Paul have created a new way for you to interact directly with Sisters, receive spiritual guidance on the road to holiness, and always have a sacred space that is restful, enriching, and beautiful available to you at any time. Live chats, an active online community, spiritual accompaniment sessions offered by the sisters on Monday and Thursday evenings, create a space for learning, growing, praying, and sharing together.

Everything on this tier is yours for $8 a month.

AND if you want to work with me personally...


<hw2>The HeartWork Personal Spiritual Guidance and Mentorship Program</hw2>.

For $22 a month you receive everything in the other tiers plus a monthly 60-minute session with me by phone or webconference.

The old adage is “you are the friends you keep.” In the HeartWork Community you are choosing a group of friends who don’t just exist with you on Facebook or where you work or in your neighborhood. We are an intentional group of pilgrims on the way to our eternal homeland, where our citizenship already is in heaven. In the HeartWork community we live in this "vale of tears" with a bit of heaven in our hearts.
