“Spiritual direction or companionship inspires people to experience authenticity in their lives as they connect with and explore the ground of all being, that deepest of truths which is beyond life and death and goes by many names, including God, and no name at all.”
-Spiritual Directors International
Spiritual direction (or spiritual companioning) is a relationship in which the director listens to your story with an ear to the holy, to the divine. It’s a confidential conversation in which the Spirit of God is present as you talk about your journey in faith.
Your director is:
a companion for your journey who assists you in recognizing the presence and call of the Holy in your life.
not a therapist, but rather a listener who can be helpful as you open yourself more fully to the action of the Spirit.
