Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction has been called “holy listening.” In spiritual direction, two persons pledge to journey together for a time in order to listen together for God’s voice in one of their lives. Through listening, reflecting, in a confidential setting of prayer and encouragement, we seek to discern God’s leading.

Spiritual direction assumes that the Divine is at work in every area of our lives: our relationships, our work, our school, our leisure, and quiet. The Spirit is present in our doubt and frustration and pain, as well as in our creativity, our joy, and our healing. Sometimes, it is difficult to discern the Spirit’s presence or movement, or to follow the call. God is the real director of our lives, but an experienced companion (spiritual director) can often help you hear or notice what is real, and respond.

Covenant

A spiritual direction covenant guides the work of director and directee and makes clear the commitments we are making together. Read the covenant.

I am grateful to offer spiritual direction for individiuals as well as group spiritual direction. The standard fee for an hour of spiritual direction is $80, but each person is asked to pay whatever s/he is able to pay. All are invited to spiritual direction regardless of ability to pay.
