Karen Basquez is a retired special education teacher and spiritual director. She serves on both the California and Ghost Ranch faculty of Stillpoint: The Center for Christian Spirituality. She is a facilitator and trainer for the Samaritan Woman Retreat that consists of nine meditations based on the Samaritan woman’s encounter with Jesus at the well in John’s gospel. Each meditation is meant to lead you progressively through this story at many levels that will be personal to you. Through this retreat, Karen helps others experience a taste of this process through the use of nine meditations founded within Biblical, Benedictine, Ignatian and 12-Step spirituality and Jungian psychology.
