Natasha Burrowes is a trained spiritual director, workshop leader, retreat facilitator, educator, and writer. Rooted in a deep belief that Spirit calls each person to a greater purpose to bring about the common good and to be in more alignment with the spiritual path, she journeys with individuals, groups, and organizations to connect to a deeper purpose, to elevate consciousness, and to create meaningful and spirit-filled action and expression in the world. She bases teaching practices, spiritual direction, and writing on wisdom drawn from the world’s diverse spiritual traditions. She feels called to support individuals and communities in their spiritual growth and development.
Receiving training from the Fellowship of Reconciliation and The Center for Nonviolence & Peace Studies at the University of Rhode Island, she is a certified Nonviolence trainer. She also received intensive training from the Mandala Center for Change and facilitates some dialogue and discussion through Theater of the Oppressed.
With 20 years of retreat and workshop facilitation experience, she presents on many topics in the areas of social justice, leadership, diversity, and spirituality. Presentations and workshops explore issues through a holistic lens that engage mind, body, and spirit; collective and individual agency; consciousness and concrete action; and transformation and healing. She has facilitated spiritual retreats for youth in juvenile detention centers, theology students, and undergraduate students; led interfaith initiatives and dialogues from classrooms to educational institutions to statewide conferences; conducted cultural responsiveness retreats and workshops in higher education setting for students, staff members, and faculty members.
