Scott Schumacher

Spiritual Director, Meditator, Dreamer

I’m Scott Schumacher, and I’m a Spiritual Director, Meditation Teacher, and Dream Companion living in Central Iowa.

The process of Spiritual Direction brings an ethic of deep listening, as well as a drawing out of where the "third hand" of God/Creator/The Universe (whatever name you call this) is gently guiding - or even pulling us, throughout our everyday lives.  While there are similarities and often the same positive benefits, unlike therapy or coaching, there are no diagnoses, no "goals" to set for our outward achievement.  We invite in divinity, share quiet wisdom, and work with our soul-level concerns, longings, experiences, and reflective questioning.  I believe that Spiritual Direction, Meditation, and our Dreams assist us in an unfolding discernment of our soul's journey - from this lifetime to beyond.

In all sessions we'll often explore topics which can range from the day-to-day personal - even the spiritual, psychic, cosmic, ghostly, nighttime and lucid dreams, supernatural encounters, aliens (yes we can talk even about those!), or any soul-level concerns you may have. We all have questions, hurts, grief, struggles, and experiences that border on the fantastical.   Perhaps you are highly intuitive, or you're exploring something for the first time in your life that has literally toppled you (like grief, loss, or a crossroads you cannot yet define).  Maybe you have EPIC dreams of a prophetic nature.  Maybe you believe you can solve very important problems in a very different and innovative way yet no one gives you the space to be heard.  Maybe you slay demons in your dreams.. (yes I can go there too!) I’m here to be your “believing mirror” on all of these sensitive topics, and to walk alongside you - sharing in calm silence or allowing space for the companioning of struggle. Confidentiality is assured!

You can see all of my offerings below!  Currently all sessions are virtual, using Zoom and other platforms.  I'm so grateful to be of service to you all!

Yes, it can be!  In many ways I share your sentiment.  I'm not a huge fan of dogmatic or organized "religion" myself.  I believe that spirituality can exist under a very large umbrella.  If you have questions about the mind, consciousness, the role of imagination, fate, faith, or even your "soul's calling" or purpose, then we can draw from an almost endless well of what you might be curious about.  Any name you attach to "God" as you know that energy or concept to be is completely acceptable.  You can be agnostic or even just a questioner.  The process of Spiritual Direction is still available to you - that of deep listening, reflection, meditation, discernment, curiosity, questioning, and meaning-making out of our individual experience.
My background has been primarily one of seeking, listening, and evolution.  I consider myself a "Celtic Christian" who holds the stories and philosophies of the Druids and Celtic legends as an anchor for inspiration, love, and wonderment in my own soul's journey.  I belong to a Presbyterian church in Missouri where my mother resides.  You can read more about my background on my website here:

We absolutely DO NOT need to hold the same spiritual beliefs.  The beauty of the Spiritual Direction process is that it is one that honors spirituality (and God) as a universal source.  I call this 'the third hand' that has no name, yet has many names.  You may have many different names - God, Source, Creator, The Universe, or you may lean more toward a spiritual philosophy of life not considered as a guiding force, but a force from within.  Within Spiritual Direction sessions we INVITE our deeper questioning, curiosities, synchronicity, intuition, and practical observations and discernment.  You only need to be YOU - because that's who you're discovering.
Yes!  As a member of Spiritual Directors International, I follow extensive Guidelines for Ethical Conduct as set out by the organization.

Of course!  I'd love to hear from you! If you need further guidance between sessions, you may always send those to me via email.
Yes, they can be!  The images and themes in Tarot and Oracle cards can invoke parts of our own journey, and while it's intriguing and entertaining to receive an intuitive or "psychic" reading, I believe it's far more valuable to explore unfolding meaning-making with a person.  This way, through questions and conversation, they can gain insight into making their own meanings and conclusions.  My card readings ARE a lot like smaller spiritual direction sessions, but without getting as in-depth.  In both, I'm not afraid to ask hard-hitting questions if they come up intutively, and I approach each reading and session for each individual from a point of curiosity and care.  Every reading is different, as is every session.
All cancellations or rescheduling requests must be made via EMAIL ONLY at least 24 hours in advance to scott@northerndruid.net.  Refunds will not be issued once a payment is made, but I will work with you to reschedule your reading or session (subject to my availability) if given at least 24 hours notice.  If adequate notice is not given, your session may not be rescheduled and I reserve the right to reschedule only on a case-by-case basis.
