This Fall’s Colloquium explored ways to help spiritual directors and those who pastor to companion directees who are longing for the Someone/Something beyond themselves who teaches us about the Mystery of life and a greater capacity to love and be loved.
The Rev. Canon Jannel Glennie is an Episcopal priest. In addition to her pastoral work, she was seated as an Honorary Canon in the Diocese of Michigan in November of 2014.
Upon retirement from parish ministry, Jannel built her little office/prayer space behind her home where she now offers spiritual direction, small group facilitation, and a healing presence. Rev. Glennie also leads a variety of retreats and teaches classes in spirituality and the mystic way. Jannel’s website: www.lumenhouse.org
In 2000, Jannel published her first book, Confessions of an Ordinary Mystic. This book is a collection of experiences that arose in the silence of prayer and often were manifest in images as well as words. The book also includes a user-friendly description of nine spiritual disciplines that encourage one to deepen their own relationship with the Holy.
Writing poetry has come most recently as a spiritual and creative outlet. Jannel published a collection of original poems, Translations: The Dance of Word and Image.
