Bill Hobbs, EdD is a spiritual seeker and follower of The Way. Steeped in Ignatian Spirituality, today he finds himself most at home in the silence of contemplative practice. After three decades of work in schools and education, he answered the invitation to accompany others in their spiritual lives and journeys. That led Bill to the Haden Institute’s Spiritual Direction Program, from which he graduated in January 2020. He currently serves as Director of the Jesuit Retreat Center and as an adjunct faculty member at John Carroll University in Cleveland. He has a doctorate in Spirituality and Leadership and is an MBTI Master Practitioner and as well as an Enneagram teacher. Bill finds meaning in working with others at the intersection of personality and spirituality. A student/devotee of Parker Palmer, Jan Richardson, and Carrie Newcomer, he believes that our journey is to move inward and downward so that we may live our lives upward and outward. During his time in education, Bill focused on finding answers; now he acknowledges that the questions are far more important (and interesting). He works with individuals and groups in vision, direction, and consulting through DiscoveringWholeness.com. A native of southern New Jersey just outside of Philadelphia, Bill carries his Philly accent with him wherever he goes.
