Sometimes a sign of growth is a sense of disillusionment or restlessness. Other times, the synchronicity of life seems to be pointing toward a new path. Would you like to have a companion to talk to once a month about what touches you or confounds you or elates you in your life journey? My role as a spiritual director is to hold space for the client and listen attentively while staying aware of any nudges from Spirit. As a director, I don't try to direct your life or path at all. I seek to direct our conversation to anything that might be ready to be unfolded out of your story. My questions in a session are meant to allow space for the client's inklings and feelings to come to the surface. Often, insights that are hiding in plain sight reveal themselves with a moment of grace.
Here's some feedback from one of my clients:
" I love my Spiritual Direction meetings with Joan, I connect to inner peace and expansion that continues after the session into my life.
Joan is an astute listener and and tunes into the avenues I seek to explore. This brings me to insights that are actively useful and helps me to gain perspective on concerns I struggle with in regular daily living and deeper spiritual issues and questions. I get insights and tools I can use daily for acceptance of life and growth."
Spiritual direction involves meeting with a director once a month for about an hour to reflect together on your journey and what touches or troubles you in your daily life or in your times of meditation or prayer. As a client, you are encouraged to notice your feelings and invite your higher power into your experiences. Along the way, you will likely sense a deepening of your relationship with Spirit and your understanding of who you are.
