Spiritual direction is the historic practice of

sacred, one-on-one conversation that

nurtures awareness of and response to

God's presence in your everyday life.

"In spiritual direction, you reflect deeply on the experience of your daily life.  Gradually, as you contemplate, you may begin to recognize God's presence and grace in your life.  You may come to realize how God's spirit is truly with you every day and everywhere.  You discover that God has been waiting for you to seek this closer relationship."

Spiritual Director's International

"Spiritual direction is not about being 'directed.'  Rather, it is very much about being encouraged to draw closer to God."

Spiritual Director's International


"Spiritual direction is the contemplative practice of helping another person to awaken to the mystery called God in all of life, and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship of freedom and commitment."

James Keegan, SJ, Roman Catholic, USA, on behalf of the 2005 Coordinating Council of Spiritual Directors International

"If there is a single factor that makes spiritual direction effective as a change agent for the soul, it is this: spiritual direction helps us to see ourselves as God sees us."
