Abide in the Spirit Holy Listening & Sacred Space
What is Abide in the Spirit?
Abide in the Spirit was birthed by Michelle Bodle out of a dream of making space for people to grow by simply being with God. When we abide, we discover more about ourselves and the Divine’s holy and life-giving love for us.

"As my spiritual direction supervisor, Michelle always comes well prepared to our meetings - prepared to encourage, prepared to ask the hard questions, and prepared to notice how God is at work in me and in my directees. As a novice spiritual director, I have been able to launch my ministry with confidence, knowing that I can rely on Michelle’s enthusiastic support and guidance."
"I have been blessed by having Michelle walk alongside me as a Spiritual Director Supervisor. Her openness and hospitable nature put you at ease. She is observant and wise yet always depending on the voice of the Spirit to guide her support. She embodies Holy listening and holding sacred space for you."
"Spiritual Direction has helped me see where God is working in my personal life and professional life. Michelle's wisdom, discernment, and encouragement have been a tremendous blessing. She asks thought-provoking questions, and helps me notice things I am unable to see on my own. Our sessions together help me "connect the dots" within my own spirit. She also allows me the freedom to make my own conclusions about where God is inviting me to go next. Hearing the thoughts of someone not directly involved in my ministry, but who understands all the nuances of working in ministry, is a priceless resource."
"Michelle is a very gifted, intuitive, and down-to-earth spiritual director. Grounded in Scripture and prayer Michelle offers companionship and helpful, and at times challenging insights for reflection between our meetings. After being in direction for more than 30 years, I can honestly say she is one of the best I have encountered."
"Spiritual Direction has been a safe place for me to share my concerns and ask questions relating to Christianity, while also challenging me to grow deeper in my faith. It has been an experience like no other in my life and it has become a vital part of my spiritual well being."
"Supervision group has been a safe place for me to ask questions and process my time with directee’s. I’ve realized the importance as a spiritual director of having those kinds of spaces. Michelle does an excellent job of leading those times."
"Participating in a supervision group with Michelle has contributed deeply to my own personal growth and my continued growth as a spiritual director. She never fails to ask exactly the most needed question at the right time, and the wisdom and experience she brings with her to each session is immeasurable. Supervision with Michelle has been one of the most enriching aspects of my spiritual journey, and I’m extremely grateful for her presence on the journey. "
