Spiritual Direction is the name most commonly recognized for a companion who listens to, and supports us as we navigate & explore our spiritual path. Another term could be Spiritual Companion, or the Irish poet & author John O'Donohue calls the person a soul friend or Anam Cara from the Celtic tradition of spirituality.
From the Spiritual Directions International website here are some reasons to see a spiritual director:
We are familiar with searching for answers with our thinking mind as a starting point, but this can limit access to deeper wisdom preventing us from tapping into guidance that comes to us through the body. My approach is to help bring attunement to the body through contemplative listening to sensations, emotions, images, impressions, knowings that come from within. This can be done seated or through contemplative bodywork which is a gentle hands-on form of support that connects us with guiding insights and a felt-sense of peace.
As we do one to one spiritual direction, it allows us to connect with and nourish ourselves with what is meaningful to us so that we can be more present as we take our place in the world.
This frees us to be part of a greater flow that we do not have to self-propel as we contribute to a healthier planet together.
The cost of a Spiritual Direction session is $80
