What is Spiritual Direction?

Because we are all connected through Love, spiritual direction nurtures a safe environment for one to speak and be heard without judgment. It is a conversation founded on compassion while acknowledging the misery and the mystery of life. 

 

Individual spiritual direction is a time within that safe environment where one's space and story are held sacred, so they can "find the gentle voice that speaks to us and affirms us in a way no human voice ever could." It is time for silence, time for questions, time to be your true self, and time to allow transformation to materialize through mercy, love, and grace. 

Group spiritual direction is a group of people whose common goal is to hold space for one another confidentially amidst the struggles in life while being led to actively listen, ask healthy questions, and move toward noticing a spiritual presence in their daily experience. This happens under the posture of an intentional and contemplative demeanor, open-mindedness, and a humble spirit and mind.

Spiritual direction is a guide for one to create their own map on the journey through healing.

Spiritual Direction is NOT:

  • pastoral counseling

  • psychological counseling

  • advice or false reassurance

  • developing "the right" beliefs or behaviors

How to begin Spiritual Direction?

Pray!

Then... Contact me at the phone number or email address below or click here to make a consultation appointment online. We will meet in person or online for an initial conversation, with no fee or commitment. At that time, we will discuss your expectations for spiritual direction, talk about some basic background information, and what I can offer you in this professional setting. Confidentiality and other essential elements will be discussed at our initial meeting and any other questions you may have. 

 

If you decide to proceed with spiritual direction, we will set up a time to meet monthly for about an hour each session. The cost is completely up to you and received as a love offering. 

Group spiritual direction is offered as a specialized appointment. Please email me to discuss your needs or interests.
