Suzanne Dunbar B.Sc. Dip.Ed. MA Spirituality
Sue trained in spiritual formation at the Institute for Spiritual Leadership, Chicago, becoming a staff member there while completing a master’s degree in Spirituality at Loyola University.
Sue has particular training in accompanying people using dreamwork, active imagination and focusing. These skills are incorporated into her spiritual direction practice.
The prophetic dimension of spiritual direction, which challenges both myself and those whom I guide to see as God sees, offers a hope-filled alternative and a call to justice for the world today.
Sue’s commitment to spiritual formation has also led to roles as:
- National President for the Australian Network for Spiritual Direction
- Australian Ecumenical Council for Spiritual Direction council member
- Eremos Retreat Team member
- Various roles with Spiritual Directors International
This is in addition to her work as a spiritual director and retreat/workshop leader.
Sue began her career with a degree in Physics and teaching science, retrained as a designer, and then moved into educational management and corporate education before working full time in spiritual formation.
Prior to becoming director of Barnabas Ministries, Sue spent 5 years as Spiritual Formation Facilitator with the Uniting Church of Australia.
