Community of Spiritual Directors

Our qualified Spiritual Directors provide one on one and/or group Spiritual Direction.  Please contact us, and we can identify several directors that may meet your needs.  After you interview the directors, you choose with whom you would like to work.

A qualified spiritual director has received significant training, and supervision. Through well designed interactions, listening, reading, music, art, mindfulness, and contemplation, we strengthen awareness of the Spirit and learn the ways to discern direction.

Several of our Directors are also qualified to lead the 19th Annotation of the Spiritual Exercises.   Learn more about the Spiritual Exercises at https://www.ignatianspirituality.com/

Through Spiritual Direction and particularly the Spiritual Exercises, individuals often find greater interior discipline and freedom to choose to follow the ways of Christ.
