Spiritual Direction


WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DIRECTION?

The idea of spiritual direction encompasses many traditions and styles. When you hear terms like "spiritual companionship," "spiritual coaching," "spiritual direction," or "spiritual guidance," you may find yourself wondering what differences are.


HERE ARE SOME WAYS WE FRAME THESE IDEAS AT THE CONTEMPLATIVE LIFE:


  • We define spiritual direction as walking alongside, holding space and offering attentive listening in order to draw out the stirrings of the Spirit within.

  • We often will exchange the terms "spiritual guidance" or "companionship" in order to steer away from language that suggests a prescriptive type relationship.


In addition to spiritual direction, we offer a variation known as spiritual coaching. While this practice draws on the same principles of deep listening, spiritual coaching often includes components of education or prep work in between sessions.
