Kami Pohl, OblSB, Facilitation Coordinator

Kami’s role is responsible for the development and management of all Group Facilitators. These are individuals that don’t simply make our meeting times more efficient; CARE Group Facilitators serve as companions and guides to the spiritual formation deepening within our community as we “turn towards”, shifting our attention back to the Divine, in the ordinariness of daily lifestyle choices. Importantly, Kami also provides individual, one-to-one, companioning sessions through spiritual direction. As Kami states,  “It can be helpful to have a companion to guide you in slowing down, pausing and lingering with whatever is emerging.”

Kami’s resume includes:

  • Graduate degree in Human Resource Development
  • Certified Spiritual Director
  • Advanced training in BioSpiritual Focusing
  • Co-Director of Oblates at St. Paul’s Monastery and Director of Initial Oblate Formation
  • Completing oblate formation, in the same class and year as Teri, in 2021

Though not all pictured here, every sister at St. Paul’s Monastery has been a tremendous source of encouragement, support, and wisdom for all oblates. We love you and are forever grateful for how you point us towards the Divine… deep within our own heart of hearts. And those that are pictured here, you have been significant mentors to me (Teri) personally. With all my heart, thank you.
