In the midst of our busy lives many of us find it difficult to stop and notice God’s presence throughout the day. Yet, at a deeper level all of us desire a deeper awareness of God’s presence. Each of us has a sacred story unfolding that is inviting our attention. Spiritual Direction, though practiced in the Church for centuries, is increasingly sought by people today who desire a deeper relationship with God and someone to accompany them on their journey.
The tradition has consistently defined the practice of Spiritual Direction as an art that recognizes the Holy Spirit as the True Director. This model of Spiritual Direction is: Trinitarian in theology, Contemplative in style and Biblical in grounding.
