I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world…  -Rilke


Pamela Dintaman lives in a wilderness area of the Sonoran Desert outside of Tucson Arizona. She walks daily among saguaro cactus and prickly pear, learning about desert foods, plants and wildlife. Her personal desire is to continually grow into fullness of life and love. She describes a pastoral guide as one who listens carefully to another, serving as a midwife/companion alongside someone’s life journey.  I value asking open-ended questions, helping people reflect on their lives. I like being part of releasing people’s gifts and energies. The word evoking describes my area of giftedness, calling forth what is there but may be hidden.
