Spiritual Direction




 

What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual Direction is a companioning of individuals on their spiritual journey. It is a sacred time in which to pause and reflect on everyday life experiences in relation to self, others and the divine Mystery/God. This time enables individuals to share and explore questions about their spiritual journey. This process is for those who are seeking to deepen their meaning and purpose in life.

 

What does a Spiritual Director do?

The spiritual director:

  • Creates an atmosphere of hospitality and safety.
  • Is an attentive listener.
  • Provides feedback.
  • Shares knowledge and resources.
  • Tends to the soul's desire through a caring, supportive, and non-judgmental spirit.
 
Discern God's Presence

Spiritual direction is really not about being 'directed." Rather, it is very much about being encouraged to draw closer to God, self and others. Spiritual direction invites you into this relationship whether you attend a church, mosque, synagogue, temple or none of these. God seeks you where you are. Spiritual directors come in all faiths.

 

Gifts of Spiritual Direction

You might come to spiritual direction for a variety of reasons, including to:

  • Identify and trust your own experiences of God, self and others.
  • Integrate spirituality into your daily life.
  • Discern and make difficult choices.
  • Share your hopes, struggles and losses.
  • Develop sensitivity for justice and concern for the poor.
  • Live the essence of your spiritual affiliation with integrity.
 
Meet with a Spiritual Director

The privilege and responsibility of a spiritual director is to journey with you as you deepen your relationship with God, self and others. The journey takes place in the context of confidential one-on-one or group sessions with your spiritual director.

Linda has extensive training and formation and is seasoned in the art of spiritual direction. Spiritual directors continue tending the spiritual life by engaging in ongoing education, confidential supervision, and also meeting regularly with a spiritual director.

You and your spiritual director will agree on a convenient location and time for meeting, usually once a month for an hour.
