Spiritual Direction increases ones awareness of the presence of God and nurtures a relationship with and commitment to Jesus Christ.
A Spiritual Director is an individual who has had extensive training in the ministry of Spiritual Direction. The Directors continue their training with ongoing education, meet with a supervisor, participate in regular sessions with their Spiritual Director, and join professional organizations. They view the time spent in Direction to be a privilege and a commitment to your spiritual journey.
Usually, confidential sessions are one hour once a month. A stipend of $40-60 per session is paid to the Director. No one is refused services due to inability to pay.
Christian Spiritual Direction is described more fully here.
