What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual direction is the process of regularly meeting with one who is trained to accompany others along the spiritual journey.

Because that journey is expressed in all that we do, there is really no aspect of life that falls outside the context of spiritual direction.

Unlike therapy, the purpose of the session is not to 'fix' emotional problems. Rather, it is to assist the individual in discovering how the Spirit of God is at work in his or her life.

Often, as in therapy, healing does occur and problems do get fixed, but mainly as a by-product of discovering the goodness of God's love at work in one's life.

Over the course of the process an individual can expect to feel more deeply understood and to find greater light shed on the dark areas of life.
