About Me


IMG_6265Hello friends!

I’m Lissy, and Contemplative at Home is my passion project, work which fills me with gratitude and joy.

As you’ll hear in my accent, I call many places home: I grew up (mostly) in California and spend time with my family there each year. My husband is from Northern Ireland and together we are raising our children in England.

I offer spiritual direction, lead retreats, and teach at church.

I have always been part of the Protestant community (currently Church of England) but am profoundly grateful for much input from the Jesuits over the years.

My desire in all things is to facilitate a deepening interior sense of wholeness, freedom and abundance of life. May you experience some of this as you encounter the Lord’s gracious love through these podcasts.

Thanks again for stopping by, again, it is truly a privilege to share the journey with you.

– Lissy

And thank you to the many others who support me to make this podcast possible… Hanna for management consulting, Victoria for particularly inspiring and cheerleading, Rachel for praying,  my bro for graphic design, the anonymous donor in January 2015 and to Paul. And thank you, so much, to Fr Finbarr Lynch SJ, who taught me to pray in this way.

  1. I just discovered your podcast. I’ve been participating in a prayer workshop at our church for the past six months. In was not a prayerful person prior to this. After discovering Contemplative prayer I’m so sorry it took me this long to experience it. Your podcasts are wonderful and I’m recommending them to the other folks in my prayer group.

  2. Hello my friend,
    I truly hope you will begin to issue new podcasts. They have been a real pleasure to listen to. They have strengthened my prayer life emensely.

  3. Lissy, I often visit your site and glean wisdom for my Lectio Divina groups. And I’m always eager to pass you along to others…honored to be your auntie! XO Linny

I'd love to hear from you!
