Originally from Oklahoma I have lived in Southeast Asia for over twelve years. My husband and I are currently based in Chiang Mai, Thailand with our two boys. I am a certified Spiritual Director, completing a two year certification program through Selah Leadership Transformations, Inc, in May 2018. For the last three years I have been practicing Spiritual Direction as a way of coming alongside those interested in seeking to make space to hear the still small voice and with a longing for engaging the deeper journey.  I have also led retreats using a contemplative approach.  If you have questions or are interested in spiritual direction or for facilitating a retreat (group or private), contact me at soulsalathai@gmail.com

I am able to meet in person or remotely.

Through my own experience facing the pressures and challenges of overseas Christian service, I have come to have a deep desire to see ministers and cross-cultural workers experience and live in the deep love of God. Completing an MA in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care at Talbot School of Theology was a deeply transformative experience for me. It is a joy and a privilege for me to journey with others through the ministry of spiritual direction, by helping make space to hear God’s loving call amidst the realities of the ups and downs, hopes and disappointments, faith and fears, joys and doubts we often find ourselves in.

I am based in Chiang Mai and I am willing to meet face to face or remotely, in English or Chinese. Please feel free to contact me at ericsheeran@gmail.com

I have been a missionary in Southeast Asia for the past 30 years and became interested in soul care after working in remote areas for many years.  I wanted to learn how to feed my own soul, and to know how to walk alongside others and nurture them in soul care as well.  I also want to provide safe space for missionaries and clergy to express questions of faith without fear.   I received a Certificate of Spiritual Direction from North Park Theological Seminary in 2013.  Since then I have offered spiritual direction to individuals both face to face and remotely. I also offer weekend retreats which usually consist of an hour in the morning and evening with me, and the rest of the time given to the retreatant to journal, rest, read and explore on their own.  Currently I reside in Roi Et, Thailand at the Grace Center where we offer small private cabins for people to come stay.   There is a labyrinth on the property.  Grace Center is in a peaceful and quiet rural setting amidst rice fields which facilitates a slower, more contemplative atmosphere to commune with God.  

I lead group retreats for groups of up to eight, and I am willing to come to you.  I can be contacted via e-mail at ruthiedutton@yahoo.com  

I offer these services in English, Thai and Lao language.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Bethel College and a certificate in Spiritual Direction from North Park Seminary.  God often uses me to help others through spiritual direction, enneagram coaching, and mentoring.  I have served in ministry over 25 years in China and Thailand, and am passionate about self-care, soul care and prevention of burnout.

I love sitting with people and talking about their relationships with God.  I have hosted silent retreats and many journey groups.  

My husband and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary this year.  We have four children ranging from ages 19-27.  I currently reside in Chiang Mai, Thailand with my husband.

If you have questions or are interested in spiritual direction or in booking a retreat, contact me at rfsummit@swissmail.org  

I am currently not taking new directees.
