A session of Spiritual Direction focuses on the directees life and unfolding faith journey with specific attention paid to the presence of God in the directees life.
We begin our session with a grounding practice to help us be present, usually a check-in, some basic breathing and a contemplative prayer practice like breath prayer, lectio divina or imaginative contemplation. From there, the directee is given space to share anything they’d like about their relationship and experience with God.
As director, I am here to hold space for the directee to share, to listen fully, and to pay attention to the ‘shimmer’ of the holy spirit. I ask questions that will offer an extended space of intentional reflection and prayerful connection to God, questions that may aid in discernment if necessary, and questions that will facilitate attunement to God. These questions are both evocative and contemplative in nature. A session of spiritual direction is marked by a slow, spacious rhythm. We take time to think, to pray, to experience.
The session ends in prayer and takes a total of 60-minutes from start to finish.
