What is Spiritual Direction?
What is spiritual direction? In some ways it’s a bit of a misnomer. Spiritual directors are not trained experts who tender out spiritual advice – or “direction.” (That’s not to say , however, you won’t receive direction… it will just come from a different Source.) Spiritual directors are listeners and facilitators. They ask good questions and then they listen deeply. They prompt you to take your questions, anxieties, hopes, dreams, gifts and confessions before God. They don’t try to fix or heal you but continually point you the One who can. Spiritual direction happens as we talk to God and reflect on our relationship with Him in the presence of another person (or a group of people).
