What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual Direction is a relational journey toward a greater awareness and growth of your lived experience in connection with God.     

Some have used the imagery of 3 chairs where the Director, Directee, and God sit together in conversation about God’s activity and desires in the life of the Directee. Spiritual Direction is an ancient practice which acknowledges that God is at work around us regardless of our level of awareness of that work. Becoming more aware and open to that work is the goal of Spiritual Direction. This isn’t counseling or therapy. Direction is aimed at walking through the spiritual encounters of life, finding the intersections and themes of God’s presence in your life, and pushing through the obstacles toward greater freedom in spirit. A Spiritual Direction relationship involves the Director as companion asking a lot of questions and the Directee being willing to do the work, both in and between sessions.  To read more about Spiritual Direction, and to gather a little more information about the logistics of meeting, download this informational sheet.

I am currently taking clients. Just click the button below to book a session through Calendly. If you think you might be interested but have further questions, please contact me and I would be happy to share further information.

 

Individual Direction

Companioning you in your faith journey with God in a 1-on-1 setting, either in person or virtually through Skype, FaceTime, etc. Individual direction sessions typically take place once a month, unless you find yourself in a particularly tough place of discernment or brokenness that might require meeting more often. Sessions can be booked through the calendly link above.

Group Direction

A group atmosphere where the group as a whole is guided to care for one another, ask good questions, and help one another move forward in faith. Check the Upcoming Events section of the website to see when the next group is meeting. You can also request a group experience by contacting me through the contact page.

Sabbatical Direction

A weekly time together (in person or virtually) to process the spiritual side of sabbatical or renewal leave. I have a heart for clergy and desire to walk through the journey of sabbatical for exploration and reflection. Materials are provided to aid in this process. For availability and cost, please contact me directly.

Retreat Direction

A group setting for spiritual growth and inspiration that also includes 1-on-1 Direction sessions. Make_Space will offer these on occasion (check the website for Upcoming Events) but can also be contracted to work with your staff team, small group, etc. Contact me for more information.
