I'm Jill Gidlund-- a speaker and writer located in the East Bay Area, California on Ohlone/Chochenyo land. I've worked with children in various settings for over 20 years, currently as Godly Play program coordinator at Haven Berkeley. Through my work with children in church and school settings, my practice of contemplative church school curricula like Godly Play and my own parenting experience, I have been captivated by sharing in the spiritual journey of the children I've known. Along with leading conversations about the spirituality of children, I spend my time enjoying my family, flowers, my dog and writing poems.
