My journey has been long, winding, humbling and not completely conventional, which is why I feel so at home being of service in the profession of the Clairvoyant Intuitive Arts [Charismata] for the Good of everyone; all are welcome. -Anne Marie at OUR CHARISMATA
Where Love is involved, there is wholeness, for Love is the most powerful force there is.

Meditation and Contemplative Prayer I have an ongoing practice for over two decades of various forms of mindfulness meditation and contemplative prayer. I like to welcome others into these areas because I am still in the process of articulating how doing so serves to underpin all else that I do in a deep sense of stability; a solid foundation... yet at the same time not by my own doing.
Highlights of formal study for Meditation and Contemplative Prayer include:
Eight week course on Mindfulness at the Myrna Brind Center at Jefferson University Hospital, PA.
Full-Time Residency at Pendle Hill Quaker Center for Contemplation and Study, Pennsylvania.
Weekend Retreat at the Mount Saint Benedict Monastery Erie, PA with Sister Joan Chittister.
A class series on Celtic Spirituality with Philip Newell, former Warden of the Iona Abbey in Scotland.
Received Spiritual Direction, PA.
Broadened Appreciation based on Diverse Life Experiences = non-judgment. Feel at ease, not judged, understood and respected when we connect; this is my intention.
In this Spiritual Counsel field, in my public service, Our Charismata, my Life and study experiences enable me to have a broader appreciation and perspective on: various cultural traditions, varying economic situations, family dynamics, various medical/therapeutic paradigms, religions, faith groups, metaphysics, and non-religious/non-spiritual orientations without judgment or presuppositions.
This broader exposure from travels, studies, and largely diverse life experiences keeps me grounded and compassionate as a Spiritual Counselor using the Clairvoyant Intuitive modalities.
From the time I can remember I was always in tune with a Spiritual expression of the world; using more than the five senses. This means that being a clairvoyant, psychic, medium, empath, intuitive, and animal communicator [charismata], are not things that I suddenly decided I wanted to study or pursue because I was interested; rather, this way of experiencing Life has been innately heightened within me from birth. After two prior careers, circumstances in the later part of my Life led to a condensed Spiritual awakening, and a deep, sweeping change occurred within that re-aligned me with Charismata. The picture before me was decidedly clear; I discerned it was time to offer assistance for others with these beloved modalities in a full-time capacity; as a profession. I saw their beneficial effects in my inner Life and in the Lives of those for whom I was reading. I also kept receiving assurance to continue to be of service. I started locally, branched out, and then with a strong foundation, clear ethics, depth of experience and development, along with time-honored testimonials, I opened Our Charismata for worldwide connections.
