DR. JANA RENTZEL

ABOUT

Hi and welcome!  I'm Jana.

 

I am a spiritual psychologist and spiritual director in private practice. I teach meditation and contemplative prayer, I lead support groups, and I create sacred art.

I am the founder and creator of Luminas, an online retreat center, offering one- to five-day retreats for those seeking a deeper relationship with the Divine Source of all. 

 

Helping you navigate your own unique spiritual journey is my deepest passion.
