What is Spiritual Direction?
In simple terms, Spiritual Direction is from an ancient practice of younger Christians seeking out older Christians to walk with them, and for them together to listen for God’s work in their lives.
I have been trained in the Ignatian stream of spiritual direction that emphasizes seeing God in all things, learning discernment to bring our faith into everyday life, and developing an intimate relationship with God.
The term spiritual direction can be confusing; some prefer the language of spiritual companionship. However, it is not the other human but God that is the director. The other human is simply an additional set of ears and eyes that listen for God’s work in your life and helps to watch for where God is moving. And someone that is regularly in prayer for you.
