Hello, I am Rev. Sally Singingtree. I’m an interfaith community minister. I offer spiritual “healing arts” to individuals and groups. I work privately with those who want to engage with a spiritual guide or spiritual director. I also facilitate writing groups in which we delve into the mysteries of life and write our deep stories. Weddings and memorial services are sacraments that deserve custom individual ceremonies, which I provide.
Meditation, writing and devotional chant help me to sustain a relationship with my Essential Being. These inner practices allow me to flow spiritual authenticity into my daily life and to be present to the spiritual needs of others. The photo shows me in my car with one of my especially wise and trusted teachers.
I used to have a bumper sticker on my car that read, ” We are spiritual beings having a human experience“. But, all too often it appears that we’re getting tossed around by life. I get tossed around too and that bumper sticker got crumpled in a fender bender! Even though I aspire to live from deep spiritual attunement, my humanity is where the rubber meets the road.
We have guidance available to us — not just from our egos & consensual reality, but from deep within and from our participation in life around us. We are part of meaningful events all the time, but we need to cultivate the awareness to notice the bigger picture. Getting our bearings in this larger field of awareness requires shifting our perspective. As we cultivate the habit of tuning in to expansive, loving and wise places, we recognize that we are being touched by the “Holy” all the time.
The Spiritual Direction and Spiritual Guidance I offer can help.
Building on my contemplative life as a mystic, I offer compassionate presence to those seeking more alignment with their deep life purpose and spiritual journey.
I work with people of all ages— not only in the prime of life and robust health— but also those experiencing physical decline as they come to terms with chronic conditions or approaching the end of the journey in this physical body. My clients are also artists, writers, caregivers, health professionals, therapists and those who are grieving.
I was ordained by The Chaplaincy Institute for Arts and Interfaith Ministry in 2000. << http://chaplaincyinstitute.org >>
I have a background working as a healthcare chaplain in hospitals and hospice where I provided spiritual support as an interfaith chaplain for patients and their loved ones. This was indeed a valuable training ground. The experiences I had in emergency rooms, ICU’s, oncology & cardiac units, and in people’s homes opened my eyes to the importance of not squandering life in meaningless pursuits and the exhilarating energy that erupts from within when we finally heal past inner constrictions and stuck emotions. Why not heal as soon as we are able? Why not die to what doesn’t work while we still have some life to live?
I am in partnership with my Essential Being and together we offer a transformative perspective to those who are drawn to work with me.
- One on one spiritual mentoring over a period of several months.
- Intuitive guidance sessions to provide healing information and activate spiritual energetic connections.
- “Looking Into The Mystery” writing groups
- Dream Circles – using projective dream-work to decipher the hidden meaning of our nightly dream visitors.
- Interfaith weddings, memorials and other ceremonies.
As a spiritual mentor, I “companion” people in their spiritual lives— offering support for them to inhabit the sacred still place within that informs them about living according to their soul’s sacred intentions.
My intuitive guidance sessions connect my clients with pertinent spiritual wisdom for their lives in present time. I assist others to allay their fears and to step more fully into the conscious beings that they came here to be. This may include healing relationships with loved ones who have transitioned out of this life, or de-activating longstanding habits of living “under the radar”.
The “Looking Into The Mystery” writing groups I facilitate help people “catch” their own sacred stories — enlightening insights generated from life experience. Often, our most difficult experiences have hidden within them a transformative and healing perspective. There is much more going on within us than most of us realize. Lacking this depth information, the hardships of life are bereft of meaning, and we just suffer.
Before going into the ministry I maintained a private transpersonal psychotherapy practice in Massachusetts and also worked at a community counseling center. My masters degree was from The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. I wrote my thesis on the ancient wisdom traditions of The Divine Feminine. During those years I trained with various teachers and shamans who gave me a much expanded perspective on health and healing. It was a time of blossoming creativity and wisdom for me. Many of my articles and poems were published in Many Hands, a local monthly journal.
Earlier in adulthood I was a music teacher, working primarily with young children and teenagers, helping them express joy and light through singing and playing the piano. Over the years I’ve been music director for fairly progressive churches and spiritual groups, leading choirs and providing piano and organ music for the weekly services. In more recent times, I lead groups in singing sacred chants. (To listen to my CD click on the “Sally’s Music” tab.)
I’m a mother of two daughters and a son — all grown and leading their own interesting and vital lives.
