Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction

 

 

“Spiritual direction is the contemplative practice of helping another person or group to awaken to the mystery called God in all of life, and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship of freedom and commitment.”

James Keegan, SJ

 

The spiritual director is concerned with the whole person, for the spiritual life is not just the life of the mind, or the life of the affections, or the ‘summit of the soul’—it is the life of the whole person.”

Thomas Merton, Spiritual Direction and Meditation p.14
