WHO WE ARE
JOAN MERTENS Certified Spiritual Director B.A.Theology, M.A.Sp.Ed
I am a certified Spiritual Director with the Souljourners Program at the SOPHIA CENTER in Atchison, Kansas. Sr. Mary Tobias Hagan, csj inspired me in my love for Creation Theology, Native American Rituals and beliefs, Jesus and the Gospels. My spirituality revolves around life and prayer lived in solidarity with nature and in circles of women and men of faith who follow the Great Work for the Universe, inspired by Thomas Berry:
“…without the soaring birds, the great forests, the sounds and coloration of insects, the free flowing streams…the Stars of the night, we become impoverished in all that makes us human.”
ERLINDA C. PERLADO-MERTENS Free Lance Theologian & Chaplain MA Pastoral Studies, MA Religious Studies
I am a Spiritual Companion with a masters degree in Pastoral Studies and Religious Studies in Women and Religion. I am a practitioner of Shibashi-Qigong as a form of exercise, prayer and meditation. Together with Joan, we affirm the One Creator Spirit within each person regardless of gender, color, class, religion and status.
