What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual direction is the practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with God, or to learn and grow in their personal spirituality. The person seeking direction shares stories of their encounters of the divine, or how they are cultivating a life attuned to spiritual things. The director listens and asks questions to assist the directee in his or her process of reflection and spiritual growth.

"To receive spiritual direction is to recognise that God does not solve our problems or answer all our questions, but leads us closer to the mystery of our existence where all questions cease."

Henri Nouwen, Spiritual Direction
