Caprice Applequist

Hi there! I'm Caprice Applequist. Spiritual direction has given me a space to practice deeply listening to people and to walk alongside people in their spiritual journeys. These are things I've always loved to do. Discovering the practice of spiritual direction has felt like coming home. I hope to get to meet you and offer you sacred space where we can both see how God is moving. 

I hold bachelors degrees in Communication and Intercultural Studies. I moved to California to get my Master's of Divinity from Gateway Seminary. The final course of my education has been a two year training program in spiritual direction at The Journey Center Santa Rosa with an emphasis in contemplative retreat leadership. I'm a registered spiritual director with ESDA (Evangelical Spiritual Directors' Association).

I am a committed Christian. My life centers around my faith. Yet one of my favorite things is to spend time with people who believe differently from me. I like to be a bridge between different worlds--traditional and progressive Christians, Muslims and Christians, contemplative and evangelical. I believe the world is richer when we all share life. Spiritual direction has been transformative in my life and I hope it can do the same for you!

I'm currently residing in Pakistan, hoping to become bilingual and attempting to bake my favorite American treats! I am still meeting with people, time zones considered. After a couple years, I dream of being able to offer spiritual direction in Urdu and English.

Those who firm up their own edges and identity too quickly without finding their center in God and in themselves will normally be the enemies of ecumenism, forgiveness, vulnerability, and basic human dialogue. Their identity is too insecure to allow any movement in or out and their “Christ” tends to be very small, tribal, and “just like them.”
