Rev. Bryan Smith, MDiv.
Following graduation from UCLA with bachelor degrees in economics and psychology, Bryan Smith attended Princeton Theological Seminary, and became ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA. In addition to being a pastor, I am also an International Coaching Federation Federation credentialed life coach, an Animas Valley Institute certified nature-based human development guide, a certified spiritual director, and an anti-racism trainer.
I am truly passionate about working with people who yearn to take an inner, transformative journey into the realms of psyche, spirit, and soul so that they might discover what calling and genius the world needs from them in a time such as this. One’s own calling is always a unique and soulful response to the cries of the world. To that end, I love nothing more than companioning others to live into their true vocation.
Taking such a journey requires learning how to become wholly human, developing a reciprocal relationship with the natural world, and being willing to wrestle with the Sacred Mystery. It requires developing capacities to navigate both internal and external resistance, doing shadow work, and being more fully equipped to stand against racism, patriarchy, toxic religiosity, and other systems that have brought us to a place of myriad global catastrophes.
I deeply believe that our times are calling for people willing to live soulfully, authentically, and courageously and would love to talk with anyone feeling that call.
I would be happy to schedule a free 30-minute session to explore this work with you.
