Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is an opportunity to discover what God’s will is now for your life, with the help of a trained companion. What is God doing in your life? Where is your life’s best purpose? Often questions such as “Why is this or that happening?” are brought into the journey as you explore together God’s particular leading.

Spiritual direction often helps you to find answers to questions such as:

• What are the signs of God’s direction for me this year, month, week?
• Why don’t I feel loved by God?
• If this is my one and only life, how can I know the will of God?

Usually meetings are once a month in a one-to-one relationship where you discern together the leading of God’s spirit in your life. Working with a helper enhances your awareness and experience of God’s presence in your life and helps you structure ways to deepen your spiritual maturity.
