What is Spiritual Direction?

"A long, loving look at the Real"

Spiritual direction is the millennia-old practice of partnering with another in order to navigate one’s spiritual journey or relationship with the sacred. Spiritual directors help the spiritually curious connect with their essential selves. Through counseling-style interaction, directors create a space within which directees may openly, honestly, and safely explore, process, and deepen all parts of their personal spiritual inclinations and longings. Matters addressed by spiritual direction include but are not limited to:
