Spiritual direction is a contemplative practice of listening deeply to your life. It is an experience unique to every person. What you bring to the session and the direction we take in the session is guided by your wishes and desires. As a spiritual director, I support people in their desire to grow in their relationship with the transcendent by means of deep listening and invitation to deeper reflection.
There are many reasons for seeking spiritual direction, such as a desire to listen more closely to God’s calling on your life, to explore new or different spiritual practices, to deepen your prayer life and to enter a period of discernment are some common reasons for beginning spiritual direction. If you want to explore meaning in your life, uncover your deepest truest self or to become more open to the presence and movement of the sacred in your life then spiritual direction may be for you.
Anyone interested in engaging their inner life, exploring meaning and/or noticing God’s movement may find spiritual direction beneficial. People of diverse faiths and traditions, the religious and the non-religious alike. No particular belief is required for spiritual direction to be beneficial. Anyone with a desire to engage life more deeply, to explore this mystery we call life, our connection with the transcendent, or our inter dependence with all beings may wish to begin spiritual direction.
A good resource for finding a spiritual director is through the recommendation of friends, coworkers, family and others you know. Other resources are the Spiritual Directors International searchable directory and directories offered by particular faith traditions, such as the Unitarian Universalist Spiritual Directors Network. It is important to find a spiritual director whom you feel comfortable with to share your sacred journey. Sometimes, it is helpful to have a spiritual director who shares some of the same type of life experiences as you.
