What is spiritual direction?
Spiritual direction is the listening companionship of one person with another, inviting an attentiveness to the direction of one’s life. It is an art of being present to the mystery of how life is unfolding, noticing the invitations of the soul in the midst of the many decisions, situations, and experiences that Life brings.
“The beautiful art of Spiritual Direction is a way of walking together through life—a sense of companionship through the ebbs and flows of life, a soul friendship where one can lean into presence and remember what is true. The reality is that the truth of one’s being is alive in each person. But most people fall into forgetting who they are and are pulled out of themselves into fear and control. The long journey of Spiritual Direction allows us to keep falling back into the rhythm of knowing the truth of our souls. Spiritual Direction is a gift guiding our lives toward being re-membered, re-turned, and re-called home.”
