“In the terrain of the spiritual life, we all need guides.” Fr. Henri Nouwen
What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual direction is a gift that the serious spiritual pilgrim cannot do without.
In the maze of life, a spiritual director is a spiritual guide.
A spiritual director is someone who talks to you and prays with you about your life. A spiritual director is a companion on your journey–a friend who directs you to another Friend. As a companion, a spiritual director shares in your struggles and joys and helps you discern how God is active in your life and how God is moving in your heart. A spiritual director offers you SETER–a safe, sheltered place, a place of refuge, a resting place for you to explore God’s presence or seeming absence in your life.
