Nancy Van der Voort, B.S.W.
Facilitator of Spiritual Companionship
Nancy has lived in Prescott since 1989 and is retired from an appreciated and satisfying career in Human Resources Management over more than 30 years in both the Phoenix and Prescott areas. Since retirement, her activities have included a variety of volunteer positions including: Prescott Family Hospice, Yavapai Regional Medical Center, CASA of Yavapai County where she served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children (CASA), the Hungry Kids Project in Prescott, and most currently as a Death Café Facilitator and as a facilitator of Spiritual Companionship. Her spiritual path has given her exposure to many helpful experiences. She has found meaningful participation in Ala-Non, particularly with respect to codependent issues. She has completed the 100-hour program in Personal Coaching at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, attended the Nine Gates Mystery School program, and is an ordained Minister of Spiritual Peacemaking. In 2017, she is planning to attend the Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction, a multi-faith approach to spiritual guidance. While not a member of a religious tradition, she was raised Roman Catholic and has particularly appreciated the freedom to explore a variety of world religious practices and finds that, while expressed differently, most have a certain core of common beliefs. She considers herself to be on a life-long path of spiritual discovery and welcomes engaging with individuals and groups who are also seekers of the God of their understanding and of Truth within their own hearts and souls.
