Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is an ongoing process wherein a person meets regularly – perhaps every four to six weeks for about an hour –with a trained spiritual director. The process focuses on God’s presence and movement in a person’s life as revealed through prayer, relationships, and the events of the individual’s life.

Spiritual direction is a journey of three persons: God, a qualified spiritual director, and a directee. The director explores with the directee where God has been present in the various areas of the person’s life (work, home, environment, etc.).

The aim of spiritual direction is to deepen the directee’s relationship with God. Generally, one meets with a spiritual director once a month.

The Center at Mariandale also offers Group Spiritual Direction in its brochure. Please see our October schedule.
