What Is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual direction is an encounter between God, the person being directed, and the spiritual director to discover and grow a relationship between the person being directed and God. Spiritual directors work with you to open yourself to the Lord’s communication, helping you listen and respond to God, grow in intimacy with Him, and carry out the consequences of the relationship.
Rather than a one-time meeting, it is a journey where the director, mature in their faith, guides you to a stronger faith. Through the journey, you’ll learn to notice experiences of God in prayer and daily life, evoking a greater awareness and understanding of God’s presence. Through careful guidance, you’ll also begin to discover the gifts God has given and how to use them in our world and others.
