Looking for a companion for your journey?
Spiritual direction is the ancient practice of listening to another person’s story, with an ear towards the holy weavings and tuggings. It is an offering of soul-care that provides nourishment for our spiritual journey.
In her book, Learning to Walk in the Dark, Barbara Brown Taylor beautifully describes the relationship with a spiritual director or midwife – “when it is time to go, I follow Rockwell and Marrion back out of the cave again, thinking about what good guides they are. They kept me safe while letting me practice courage. They pointed me in the right direction without telling me what to see. Maybe that is the difference between pastoral counselors and spiritual directors. We go to counselors when we want help getting out of caves. We go to directors when we are ready to be led farther in.” (pg. 129)
During a spiritual direction session, space is lovingly tended for for you to listen deeply to yourself and to the gentle nudges of the Spirit; for you to explore the stirrings of your soul.
