Sometimes you simply need to talk to someone who is also on a spiritual path and can help you discern your path. That’s what a spiritual director does–gently and carefully accompanies you along the journey. Mostly, we listen and reflect back to you the wisdom of God that we notice in you. Most importantly, we do this without judgment. We want you to discover for yourself where you are being led.
Individual spiritual direction ordinarily involves a private meeting–in person, by telephone or skype–about once a month for an hour. The session usually begins in silent prayer as both director and directee collect themselves in the presence of God. Then, the person in direction will share whatever is real and important that is going on in his or her life. Together the directee and director explore where God is present and what God’s invitation to the directee may be.
Spiritual direction is an excellent practice for becoming more aware of God’s presence, for savoring the goodness in your life, and for sorting out difficult life situations and choices (discernment). Spiritual direction centers around God, prayer, meditation and the holiness of everyday life.
