Within each of us lies
the desire to find meaning beyond the moment...
to discover our true selves...
to grow closer to God and to one another.
A spiritual director can help you satisfy that longing.
You might come to spiritual direction for a variety of reasons, including to:
- Identify and trust your own experiences of God.
- Integrate spirituality into your daily life.
- Discern and make difficult choices.
- Share struggles, losses, or disappointments.
- Find encouragement and affirmation
- Grow in relationship with God, self, others and creation
Spiritual direction encourages you to explore
a closer relationship with God. In the midst of
a busy life, many people find it difficult to
notice God's action in their daily affairs. Yet,
at the deepest level, all of us long for a more
conscious expedrience of God's presence
Discern God's Presence
In spiritual direction, you reflect deeply on the experiences of your daily life. Gradually, as you contemplate, you may begin to recognize
God's presence and grace in your life. You may come to realize how God's spirit is truly with you every day and everywhere. You
discover that God has been waiting for your to seek this closer relationship.
Spiritual direction is really not about being "directed." Rather, it is very much about being encouraged to draw closer to God. Spiritual
direction invites to into this relationship whether you attend a church, mosque, synagogue, temple, or none of these. God seeks you
where you are. Spiritual directors come in all faiths.
