Spiritual Direction
Within each of us dwells the desire to find meaning beyond the moment... to discover our true selves... to grow closer to God and to one another. A spiritual director can help you satisfy that longing.

Spiritual direction encourages you to explore a closer relationship with God. In the midst of a buy life, many people find it difficult to notice God's action in their daily affairs. Yet, at the deepest level, all of us long for more conscious experience of God's presence and love.

In spiritual direction, you reflect deeply on the experiences of your daily life. Gradually, as you contemplate, you may begin to recognize God's presence and grace in your life. You may come to realize how God's spirit is truly with you every day and everywhere. You discover that God has been waiting for you to seek this closer relationship.

Spiritual direction is really not about being directed. Rather, it is very much about being encouraged to draw closer to God. 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.

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

You and your spiritual director will agree on a convenient location and time for meeting, usually once a month for an hour. Many spiritual directors request a fee, some receive your free-will donation, and others offer their time with no expectation of anything in return.

After three or four sessions, you will have the opportunity to evaluate the relationship. Whether your relationship with the spiritual director continues for many years or for only a short period of time, it is very important to be comfortable with the spiritual director you choose. What is shared between you is held in confidence.
