Wondering about spiritual direction?

Curious about what might sustain your spirit space?

Does any of the following ring true for you?

You feel flustered by all the changes life is throwing at you.
Also, you feel tired of dealing with things – work responsibilities, navigating illness in the family (yours or others.)

Above all, you are not sure where “you” are in the middle of all this.
Your valued spiritual practices no longer offer the solace they once did.

You feel and/or think deeply and wonder where you can safely talk about your inner life. You certainly don’t want people feeling sorry for you or giving you advice. To be honest, you are not even sure how to begin.

Spiritual Direction

Keeping the water up to your plants in the heat of summer offers a metaphor to understand spiritual direction.  Likewise, people can come feeling wilted and reconnect to the spring of life-giving water residing within them.

The Spiritual Exercises

Ignatius maintains that just as walking or running are bodily exercises, so too we need spiritual exercises.  Hence, gaining strength with spiritual exercises allows the soul to find spiritual freedom.
