Carol Swanson - Spiritual Director

Carol Swanson

I was awakened to the beauty of life experienced with God in the early 2000’s. Ever searching for and pursuing knowledge of God, I came to a personal crisis of wondering if my faith was really sufficient for all that life holds. Through a rich encounter of graced listening by a spiritual director, I began a journey of experiencing the love of God in my every day life. Desiring to create space for others to also experience and know God’s love, I completed training to become a Spiritual Director at Mercy Center in Burlingame, CA in 2008 and also supervision training there in 2014. I have a Masters Degree in Spiritual Formation and Leadership from Spring Arbor University in Michigan in 2009. I am a Centering Prayer presenter and have a deep passion to direct others through the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. I facilitate soul care groups and contemplative retreats. My love for travel and spiritual formation have led me to interact with young leaders in Kenya and Malaysia.

Carol has been married to Jay since 1971, has 3 married sons and 11 beautiful grandchildren!
