Spring Book Club Discussion

Our Unforming
De-Westernizing Spiritual Formation
by Cindy S. Lee

facilitated by Kathi Gatlin

Sometimes you read a book that you wish you could discuss with others. There is a much richer engagement in the conversation around a book in community than reading such an excellent book alone. 

It is hard to recognize that our culture, our way of seeing how the world works, and our understanding of who God is shapes the way we walk out our spirituality. Cindy Lee engages this topic in Our Unforming: De-Westernizing Spiritual Formation. So many of our spiritual formation and even spiritual direction books have been written through a Western and a majority culture lens. The gift of experiencing a fuller and broader view of God and our spirituality requires hearing and engaging diverse voices. Let's engage this topic by reading Cindy Lee's book together in a safe community. 

If you would like to discuss this book with a group of other interested participants, please join in this rich conversation with us.

Contemplative Prayer Offerings with Kathi


Kathi Gatlin

Kathi Gatlin founded Boldly Loved and co-founded the Companioning Center to bring together her two greatest passions: spiritual formation and teaching. In this, she utilizes her DMin. in Leadership and Spiritual Formation from Portland Seminary and her M.Ed. earned through George Fox University.

Her greatest joy is walking alongside others, individually and in groups, in their own spiritual journey, sharing ways of understanding God anew through contemplative prayer and teaching, and to see them grow in the depth of their own understanding of who God is and who they are in relationship with God.

Kathi is a spiritual director, supervisor, writer, spiritual formation group facilitator, retreat speaker, and leadership mentor. For more information about Kathi, check out boldlyloved.org.
