The Beautiful Pathway is conscientiously designed to allow a place where trained and qualified spiritual directors, mentors, and coaches or “creative spiritual entrepreneurs” can offer spiritual guidance or gifts a way that they can be part of a community, be connected with potential directees or mentees, receive donations, raise funds, and be under the covering of Intrinsic Beauty Ministries, Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Since the first centuries of the Christian church and across the Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant traditions, courageous leaders have taught this beautiful way of living with-God-in-Christ for others. God became man to be with-us.
Essentially, we are all on the journey finding God in the sacred ordinary days, in others, responding to invitations from God, respecting the paschal mystery, choosing to see through eyes of gratitude, and learning to live with the eucharistic way of life in Christ for the sake of others, for the glory of God, through the incarnational presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit, which is a beautifully courageous, adventurous, and joyful way to live.
Welcome. We would love for you to experience this journey with us.
