As a spiritual writer, I find myself paying close attention to thinkers who can explore the deep things of the heart and ground them in research and practice. Diane Millis is one of the best I’ve seen at making this connection of mind and spirit. Her sessions move me profoundly.

— John Backman, Author, Why Can’t We Talk?

Time spent with Dr. Millis, our facilitator, offered participants pathways to affirm spiritual self-knowledge, questioning, sharing and learning. Dr. Millis’ gift of helping us suspend the boundaries that typically disconnect us from each other is palpable. Dr. Millis is technically and artfully astute at leading soulful and compassionate interfaith communication; she is a difference maker.

— Rebecca L. Weidensaul, Ph.D.Associate Dean of Students, Student Life, Drexel University

Thank you for creating a book that will take our conversations to a sacred, deeper place–both in ministry and in our lives! Thank you for bringing this book to life at our event–immediately enriching our conversations and inviting us to imagine how we can be more fully present to others and to God, while also being present to ourselves!

– Denise Floe, Small Group Ministry Director, Incarnation Lutheran Church

This was one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended at a conference. Diane was articulate, knowledgeable, and engaging.
