The Salem Center for Spirituality:  Find Your Self Here

The Salem Center for Spirituality is a place to find your true Self in God.  Here we dive into our own depths and surface our true Selves through practices like spiritual direction, meditation, creative arts, energy work, and Jungian dream work . Our goal is to align Self to Soul and to expand our conscious awareness.

About Sheryl Wells, Director

As a Spiritual Director, I offer space, companionship, experience and knowledge grounded in a variety of faith and non-faith traditions.


Spiritual Direction  is the practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, or to learn and grow in their own personal spirituality. As a licensed spiritual director I offer sessions curated to your spiritual goals and desires.

Guidance & Direction

Individual: In individual spiritual direction we listen together for how you are connected to your larger Soul Self and for how the Divine Mystery is at work in your life.

Group: For those who want to meet in a small, closed, and confidential group to listen deeply for discernment in response to individual questions and/or in response to specific concerns regarding life events.

SPIRITUAL Formation - pricing by contract

Spiritual Formation is the practice of discovering leadings of the heart. Through mindfulness and meditation practices we offer opportunities to expand your collective unconscious. Ask yourself: Have you caught a glimpse of a larger, more connected, more coherent Universe?


Meditation: Learn to meditate, or enhance your own meditative practices.  I offer lessons in: guided imagery, mind management, body-mind connection, and others.

Contemplative Prayer: Add richness to your prayer life through contemplation. Lessons offered include: centering prayer and how to pray with icons, art, and sacred writings. 

Mindfulness Practices:  Is it Awareness that you seek? I can assist you in learning and creating disciplines that enhance mindfulness and can transform your life.


Jungian Archetype Work: Let’s work together to discern what unconscious archetypes are at play in your life. We can harness their energy to create meaning, coherence, and wholeness in your life.  

Creative Knowing: Explore your unconscious self through creative writing, poetry, and art from the heart.  Connect to the deeper knowing within you.

Dreamwork: God and our Deeper Self speak to us through our dreams.  Dreamwork occurs in a safe, closed and contained atmosphere where we explore your dreams to learn what God or your deep Soul may be saying to you.

Enneagram and Myers Briggs: I offer education and use of these tools as ways to help you learn more about who you are and who you are called to be.  Works well either individually or for a group.

Let’s journey together to move you towards living an intentional and conscious life.

Let me plan a week or a weekend of spiritual renewal and refreshment for your church group or business team.  Bond together through meaningful meditations, educational offerings, discussions, creative artwork, and soul-nourishing practices.

Sheryl helped me come into my own spiritual maturity. Her grace and compassion gave me the space I needed to grow.

ENERGY WORK - $50 / hour

Energy imbalances can be physical or emotional, manifesting pain, anxiety, and exhaustion. Our goal is to facilitate balanced energy dynamics that promote self-healing and a connection with the universal energy flow.  Energy Work practices aim to restore this balance  through Reiki Energy, Energy Balancing, and Chakra Alignment. Want to know more about a typical session?

Reiki Energy: In Reiki the practitioner links clients to universal energy to enhance one's self-healing.  Reiki is practiced all over the world and for many different reasons, including pain management, emotional issues, and mental clarity.  Clients remain fully clothed, and touch is not necessary for energy to be connected and felt.

Energy Balancing: Energy imbalances can make us feel tired, sluggish and/or anxious.  Energy balancing assesses for blockages to flow and seeks to correct any imbalances.  Physical touch is not required.

Chakra Alignment: Here the practitioner assesses each of the seven chakras and connects with the universal energy flow to open and align the chakras.  This usually results in the client feeling rested and calm with an air of well being.  Great for anyone experiencing stress.

Reiki with Sheryl has resulted in the easing of both spiritual and physical discomforts.

Sunlight fell upon the wall; the wall received a borrowed splendor. Why set your heart on a piece of earth, O simple one? Seek out the source which shines forever.
