What is a spiritual director?

“Spiritual directors support the unique spiritual journey of every individual. They are welcoming and present with those they companion, listening and responding without being judgmental. They are contemplative and honor silence as a spiritual practice. They are intuitive spiritual friends — accountable and compassionate, hospitable and open, loving yet independent.” (Spiritual Director’s International)

A spiritual director may identify by many different names:

Director, Companion, Guide, Teacher, Friend, Anam Cara

 

Why spiritual direction?

A spiritual director is an objective listener who can hear themes, notice patterns, ask good questions, and help you see where you are called to be at this time of your life.

Working with a spiritual director allows you to make your spiritual and personal growth a priority in your life. 

You will have the opportunity to develop contemplative practices. 

You will deepen your relationship with the Divine.
