There are times in all our lives when we may all need a little guidance or support to help us with the challenges that life can throw at us. Some will find counselling, psychotherapy or just a listening hear to get an objective perspective on what is going on in their lives; whereas others may choose the route of a Spiritual Direction/Accompaniment. Having a Spiritual Director/Companion has an added dimension in as much as it also challenges us to look at our relationship with God and how we can deepen that relationship. It is an opportunity, to reflect on our lives not just in relationship to God but with others and with ourselves.
A spiritual director is a companion on life’s journey, helping us to find God in all things and in the ordinary circumstance of our lives. Assisting us with where we might be experiencing resistances or blockages, asking the reflective question that will lead to breakthroughs in our relationship with God and our lived circumstances. We may be feeling that we are:
1. At a crossroads in our lives;
2. That we want to explore new ways of praying;
3. That our prayer has “dried up” or we are experiencing difficulties in our prayer;
4. That we are in need of guidance in discerning the call of God in our lives;
5. That we need a spiritual companion to walk a part of the journey of our lives as it is at the moment;
Spiritual direction is available for people of all faiths -- lay, single or married, priests, ministers and members of religious communities.
Frequency of sessions can be discussed and decided upon according to individual needs. Many people find once a month helpful.
We are social beings and we need other people with whom we can share and confide the high points and the low points of our lives.
