The purpose of spiritual direction is to detect and discern the presence and movements of God in a person’s life. Spiritual direction can become part of the life of all those who seek relationship with their Source, and is a typical part of life. It is not about advice giving and it is not counseling.
The classic ministry of spiritual direction is about two people listening together to the guide and companion of one who is being sustained. In spiritual direction, the focus is on trying to detect the activity of this sustainer (whom one may call God, Higher Power, Spirit) and to discover possible invitations in the life of the seeker.
Such seeking may involve the use of spiritual disciplines in addition to what the seeker may be perceiving or hearing. As a director, I will do a lot of listening to you and asking questions of you as we explore together the ways you may or may not be connecting with your guide.
Sessions typically occur once monthly, although that frequency may vary. We will have a briefer initial meeting to facilitate discernment of our match for journeying together. We will then separately listen for guidance over time before reaching a final decision about moving forward.
