What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is the practice of being with people in a sacred space as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, as they learn to grow in their personal spirituality. The person seeking direction shares stories of their life experiences and encounters with the divine, or personal faith journey. The director listens and asks questions to guide the seeker in their process of spiritual growth.

  • Spiritual direction is not therapy or counseling. 

  • Spiritual directors study for two or more years to receive certification prior to starting a practice.

  • Spiritual directors will have a variety of experience, education, and possibly other certifications to fit the specialized work they provide. 

  • Spiritual direction is practiced one on one or in a group setting.
