What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual Direction is recommended for people who are actively seeking God's Will in the midst their daily life.

The primary goal of spiritual direction is the growth of one’s relationship with the Lord and an increased ability to discern God's voice. In spiritual direction, there is a one-on-one conversation about one’s experience of prayer and the spiritual consequences of that experience to living a full, mature Christian life. The true director is the Holy Spirit who helps the trained spiritual director to “hear” what the directee is truly saying about his/her faith life. The director then reflects back what is being conveyed without giving advice. Most times, the director simply listens and reflects. Other times the director challenges, encourages, affirms and/or supports. At all times, shared prayer is the cornerstone of the spiritual direction session. Ultimately as directees grow in their understanding of God’s working in their life, a deeper, more intimate relationship emerges with the Lord, thus producing a spirit which is more docile and surrendered.

Those seeking spiritual direction should be Catholic Christians who are willing to spend quiet time praying with scripture, journal their prayer experience and share that experience with another person.
