Why seek out a spiritual director?
The desire for spiritual direction emerges and develops in varied ways:
- For some people this desire occurs within their personal life experiences, through reflection upon their inner-self, through meditation or the search for deeper meaning in their lives.
- For others this desire is discovered within their relationships. They yearn to develop or deepen the quality of these relationships.
- There are some whose desire is born out of their commitment to bring about justice within the social systems in which they live and work.
- While others passionately desire to ground their deep concern for the environment in a spiritual context.
What can spiritual directors offer you?
- help people to develop a contemplative stance to enable them to be present to the spiritual within all things;
- assist men and women to experience their spirituality amidst the joys and struggles of their personal relationships;
- stand alongside people so that they find a liberating spiritual energy as a source of empowerment in the justice work to which they are called;
- help people to experience their spirituality in nature as a way of grounding their deep concern for the well-being of the natural environment.
In spiritual direction, you are accompanied to attend to the life-giving presence of what is ultimate in your life as you perceive it.
