What is Spiritual Direction
Spiritual Direction is a sacred relationship in which a seeker grows spiritually as a trained Spiritual Director listens with them for God's activity in their life. Spiritual Direction encourages you to explore a relationship with the Mystery of God. Through sacred listening you can
see more fully God’s presence and grace in your life.
This sacred non-controlling friendship is a peaceful listening space created between you, your Director, and God. Through prayer your life begins to transform in wonderful and surprising ways because God is constantly, actively, and powerfully working in your everyday life.
In Spiritual Direction we discover what God is already doing in your life.
