Every moment of our lives is an opportunity to learn something more about ourselves. Each of us must find our own way and discover who we are on this journey of living. Spiritual Direction is a sacred opportunity to share our inner most selves, our story, with another person whose calling is to serve in the trusted position of Spiritual Director. Direction allows someone to enter into a dialogue with the intent of letting Spirit reveal the story you are living by giving you an opportunity to see how you react and respond to the world around you. As a sacred witness to another person's life story, a director will ask questions that inspire self-reflection, inviting the directee to dive deeper into their own awareness in order to grow. Direction creates sacred space for self-discovery, integration of your own sense of Spirit, and connection to the Divine. Spiritual Direction is for someone seeking illumination and truth about their own Spiritual nature. One-on-One sessions last for one hour and are held in Waked Up Studio.
IT IS NOT
Spiritual direction is not counseling. It does not deal in crisis or issues of mental health. Spiritual Direction is not about advice giving, problem solving or goal setting. The Spiritual Director is not responsible for the revelations and transformations of the Directee, or for shaping their experience of direction.
What to Expect in a Spiritual Direction Session
Spiritual Direction Sessions will last for one hour and will begin with the Director asking the Directee if they would like to open in prayer or silence. The Directee can begin speaking when they believe they are ready or have something on their minds. The Directee does not have to come with any prepared ideas or topics, just an openness to the Divine at work in their lives and in this sacred space right now. The director will listen and may ask questions to provide space for the Directee to dive even more deeply into the ideas and thoughts that well up from within. The Director will labor alongside the Directee as they listen and discern the revelations of the Holy One together in the presence of the Divine.
