What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual direction means that you meet monthly with someone who is a trained spiritual director. Mystic John of the Cross said spiritual directors are ushers, opening the door for others to step into the presence of God.
The spiritual director helps a person notice how God is moving in their everyday lives, and encourages them to respond to God in ways appropriate for the individual. Directees are encouraged to draw closer to God.
Other things directees might request are suggestions for spiritual practices, assistance with discernment in important life matters, and/or resources for personal reflection and growth. Generally speaking, directors are nondirective. They are trained to listen empathically for God’s movement in the life of a directee, and to God for the questions that want to be asked.
