Spiritual Direction is a process whereby a spiritual director assists another in making sense of their experience with Jesus Christ. Using active listening, prayer, and application of Scripture, the director helps the directee/seeker become more attentive to the work of the Spirit of Christ in his/her personal life, relationships, work, and especially prayer life.
In your faith journey do you sometimes have a desire to talk with someone who is wise and who can help you discern and foster attentiveness to God’s presence in your life? In times of decision do you have a need for someone who has a deep prayer life to come alongside and to assist you in listening to God? Do you have a longing and interest to deepen in your relationship with God through prayer, but need some guidance along the way?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, then you might consider meeting with a Spiritual Director. What does a Spiritual Director do? One person is present to another and is attentive to the work of the Spirit of Christ in their personal life, relationships, work, and especially their prayer life. Essentially, Spiritual Direction is about assisting another to make sense of their experience of Jesus Christ. They will also assist the other to apply Scripture to their particular circumstances. God is present and active in our daily lives. The Spiritual Direction relationship is focused on making sense of how present and active God is and to spiritually discern what this means for our daily lives.
