Adam Lavitt, BCC
Rabbi & Board Certified Chaplain
Are you in search of a more fulfilling spiritual life? I believe there is no one right way to be spiritual. We all have an internal navigation system offering unique directions to bring us into touch with our life-giving source. Usually these inner cues are drowned out by the noise of our outer lives. Spiritual direction is a sacred space in which we slow down and listen to what is happening in the depths of your inner life so you can find a greater sense of clarity, direction, and wholeness. People seek the support of a Spiritual Director for many reasons: maybe they have an important life choice to make, had a powerful experience they can’t understand, have been spiritually wounded and want to heal, or feel challenged in or want to change their belief system. Most people come in search of a more fulfilling spiritual life. Sometimes the reason someone is drawn to this work is not at first obvious. Perhaps it’s a feeling that making time for these types of conversations is a worthwhile endeavor. I am generally available to see clients on Mondays, including some evening hours. To get started, please contact me to schedule a free 20 minute consultation to see if we’d be a good fit.
I am a spiritual director, transformational educator, and interfaith chaplain based in Providence, RI. I love helping people connect with sources of wisdom and deepen their overall sense of vitality and wholeness. Since 2017, in addition to serving as rabbi and community chaplain, I have worked as a spiritual companion and guide to seekers near and far, including students at two rabbinical seminaries. My work as a Spiritual Director was recently featured in the New York Times. I graduated cum laude from Kenyon College in 2004. In 2012, I was ordained at and received a Master’s in Jewish Education from Hebrew College Rabbinical School — and was the school’s first recipient of a certificate in Pastoral Care. In 2017, I completed training as a Spiritual Director through Hebrew Union College’s Bekhol Levavkha training program, and in 2019 became a Board Certified Chaplain (BCC) through Neshama: Association of Jewish Chaplains.
