“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.
Spiritual direction is a 3-part encounter–an encounter between the Lord, the directee, and the spiritual director for the purpose of the directee growing in their relationship with Christ. As a companion, a spiritual director shares in your struggles and joys and helps you discern how God is active in your life. Spiritual direction 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.
Spiritual direction allows you to achieve greater sanctity. It allows you to slow down and tune in to how God is working in the deepest parts of you.
