What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual Direction is a ministry in which one person accompanies another in the process of growing in intimacy with God.  The focus of a spiritual direction relationship is the directee’s experience of the Holy One in his/her life and prayer, and the way that communication happens between God and the directee.  Life circumstances and struggles may be discussed in spiritual direction sessions.

Problem-solving, however, is NOT the focus of spiritual direction. Regular meetings with a spiritual director help one to pay attention and to become aware of God in self, others, events, all of life!

On going spiritual direction is offered by the Co-directors and twenty other certified spiritual directors at the Upper Room.
