“efy McDonnell is a great guide on the journey. She will help you move out of the dark and into the light of your own life” ~ Jan Phillips – author: Finding Ourselves on Sacred Ground

I’ve been on a transformative journey and I now walk through my daily life with an open heart, sharing my walk through Spiritual Direction.

Do you want to trust and listen to the Divine in your daily life? I can help you for that is what my transformative journey helped me to do even through the shattering of my heart—more than once. Now I am only grateful—but it took time. Do you want to be able to move out of the dark into the light?

I can help you with that for that is what I did. Each journey is unlike any other but they all have common elements as the spiritual masters and mystics have taught us.

Want to know how you can tell if the Divine is your guide? I call guidance from the Divine “nudges” and I can share and help you trust those nudges in your own life because they have a particular quality. When you are ready we can share light together.

efy is a fine arts photographer and published author. She has traveled the country speaking on the Transformative Journey. She is a Spiritual Director to others who are seeking such a path.

“efy will share her transformative journey, how she walks through her daily life with an open heart.”


I don’t think I’ll ever forget you standing up there in your bare feet and sharing your journey with the audience in such a heartfelt and authentic manner. I don’t know if anyone has ever told you this but you have a beautiful voice. It is melodic – just full of love and joy – it is absolutely captivating, very unusual. Can’t explain it better but when you begin talking in person or for sure on that stage, the listener is drawn in and held. So thank you, thank you for doing this for us – it was so well received.

efy came to Maine and took numerous photographs that capture the beauty and grace of this part of the state.  Yet, they are much more than beautiful photographs. I consider them numinous. She has captured the spiritual, mystical energy that draws me time and again.

efy has a true passion for photography. When I look at her pictures, I’m reminded of God’s presence all around us and it gives me a lasting feeling of peace and tranquillity. Her works both incite and inspire me to look for beauty in nature. efy’s art needs to be shared with the world.

I have always enjoyed efy’s work but when I first laid eyes on “Ponder” at an exhibit in Tuscarawas County Art Center I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful it was that I got emotional to the point of being teary-eyed, I knew had to have it.  The depth and richness of the piece are perfect for a peaceful space we are creating in our home.

The winning combination of her love of nature and her love of God provides a true reflection of the spiritual nature of her photographs. Her gift of the spirit and natural talent present themselves in the portrayal of her work, as she speaks of her life journey and inner peace. She is a true talent and her love of nature and God are both heartfelt and inspiring.
