Spiritual Direction offers a place to explore prayer practices, meditation, spiritual experiences, and your growing desire for significance. It is not psychotherapy, counseling, or financial planning.
Spiritual direction is specific to your spiritual journey and encourages you to explore the movement of God within your life. If you are taking the first steps to learn to pray or have been meditating for decades, spiritual direction is valuable. Taking into consideration your unique personality and temperament, spiritual direction is a place to reflect on how to pray, your ongoing or unfolding spiritual practices and the stages of spiritual development in the life of a sincere seeker.
Like prayer, contemplation, and meditation, spiritual direction nourishes your spirituality and empowers us to serve with authenticity and grateful hearts.
Your whole life is ground for the life of your soul, your highest values, love, creative energy, the holy, and the sacred.
Yes, this can be difficult. Many people are more comfortable talking about the details of their sex life than they are talking about the details of their spiritual life. This is why having a Spiritual Director that provides you with safe space for holy listening can be very helpful to your deepening your relationship with God.
The real spiritual director is God. God touches the human heart directly. The human spiritual director does not “direct” in the sense of giving advice and solving problems. Rather, the director helps a person respond to God’s invitation to a deeper relationship.
