Daniel brings 20 years of ministry experience to his practice as Spiritual Director. During divinity school, Daniel learned about the disconnect between sarx and pneuma (That's Greek for 'body' and 'spirit.') in Christian theology... even in the Christian Bible, hence in Western society. Since this awakening, Daniel has rebelled against this schizoid theology by helping people integrate mind/body/spirit as a "self" in relation to others. He is a pastoral counselor and spiritual director who holds certifications in personal training, sports nutrition, Level II Reiki, comprehensive sexuality education, antiracism and antioppression with multiculturalism, gerontology, dementia, and chaplaincy.
