What is Spiritual Direction?

Every religious tradition on our planet has a form of “spiritual direction,” and it can be practiced regardless of spiritual affiliation.

Contrary to the word “direction” in its name, spiritual direction is nothing more than the art of holding space with people as they listen to their soul and cultivate that what it means to be human.

As your “soul friend,” I’ll help you have conversations with yourself that ask searching questions about the sources of your sorrows and your joys. As you talk through them, I will listen compassionately and non-judgmentally. I may encourage you with gentle suggestions to explore deeper those parts of your soul that appear to need caring nurture. I will never tell you to do anything and your following my suggestions is not required.

Spiritual direction is not only helpful for deepening your own spiritual life and connectedness to the Divine. It’s also helpful for discerning matters of vocation and call, especially when combined with such wisdom traditions as astrology and the Enneagram (which I also actively practice).

Because of the intimate nature of this work, spiritual direction requires time to do what it needs to do. It also requires buy-in from you, the client, in order for it to be effective.

I offer spiritual direction on a suggested donation basis of $108 for an hour; this is on a pay-as-you-are-willing-or-able basis. But I encourage you to pay something, even symbolically. Spiritual direction clients get a discount on my astrological services as well.
