What is Spiritual Direction?

With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, a Spiritual Director prayerfully invites a person to become more aware of God’s presence and communication in the context of their daily lives.  Through deep, attentive listening and discernment, the director intentionally provides a sacred space for the individual (the directee) to respond and grow in intimacy with God

They listen. They foster a contemplative attitude in directees. They help directees discern. They help directees to notice resistance to new developments in the relationship with God. They will pray with and for you.

We talk about your prayer life, the way you view God, your dreams, and where you struggle.

Certified Spiritual Directors are graduates of accredited centers of training.  We offer the service as a ministry and as a professional service.

Spiritual Direction is for anyone intentionally seeking to deepen their relationship with God.  A person has a wiliness to make time for regular periods of daily prayer, an openness to inviting God into daily life (blessings, challenges, and decisions), and to desire God to be prioritized above all things.

When the stirring arises in you to consider Spiritual Direction, ask the Lord to reveal how you may like to begin.  Most start by meeting 1x a month for 45-50 minutes, others desire to meet more often.  Additionally, I invite you to review Preparation for the First Session.
