Spiritual Direction is a way of offering companionship to people who are seeking God and a greater sense of themselves. It is non-judgmental and generous, and always trusts that the seeker knows more about their own life, thoughts, and longings than the director does. The director’s role is to listen carefully, invite the presence of the Holy Spirit, practice compassion, and ask questions that will help the directee grow in wisdom and grace.
L. William Countryman writes that:
Spiritualities flourish in face-to-face-conversation, the arena of the spoken word, where counsel is given and received, the arena where people who have found themselves, perhaps quite against their own preferences, living in the presence of the divine Mysteries seek each other out in the hope of sharing the task of discernment and understanding.(1)
