What is Spiritual Direction? Is Spiritual Direction for you?
Are you seeking a deeper relationship with God? Do you desire a more fruitful prayer life? Are you in the process of needing to make an important decision, looking for God’s direction? Spiritual Direction involves an interpersonal relationship in which a person meets with a spiritual director on a regular basis who listens in order to help the person grow in the Holy Spirit. Spiritual Direction is not primarily advisory or informative, though the director might impart advice or knowledge from time to time. Nor is the goal primarily therapeutic, though emotional relief is often a valued by-product of the service. Spiritual Direction is a confidential adult-adult relationship, not a parent-child relationship. The director never speaks for God or presumes to know God’s will for the person, but always gives that person the freedom necessary to discover the voice of God arising from within.
