Spiritual Direction refers to the relationship that exists between a person seeking a deeper spiritual life and the person who accompanies him/her on this journey. The director, acting as a friend and companion, listens, with the intent of helping the seeker understand and recognize how the Holy Spirit is leading and working in his/her personal life.
The goal is to assist an individual in developing a deeper personal spiritual life and to help that person better understand him/herself so as to better his/her spiritual connection to our loving God. Spiritual direction encourages someone to be the unique individual God created them to be, and a spiritual director helps as a guide, leading each to a deeper, authentic Christian life. The director also enables an individual to see the blocks or obstacles to his/her spiritual development and suggests tools and helps that might remove these obstacles.
The Spiritual Director will meet on a regular basis with the individual she is directing and work with him/her to enable a fulfilling and meaningful Christian experience of God’s love.
