Spiriual Direction

Spiritual guidance/direction is an on-going relationship in which either a group or two individuals (a directee and a director) meeting on a regular basis, specifically for the purpose of becoming more attuned to God's presence in all of life. Eugene Petersen, a prominent author, describes spiritual direction as:

"... teaching people to pray, to discern the presence of grace in events and feelings, affirming the presence of God at the heart of life, sharing a search for light through a dark passage in the pilgrimage, guiding the formation of a self-understanding that is biblically spiritual instead of merely psychological or sociological." He goes on to say that it is "space to explore the everyday ordinariness for the presence of God and workings of grace" - precisely at those times when "nothing seems to be happening."
