Spiritual Direction (also referred to as Spiritual Companionship or Accompaniment) is a spiritual practice developed in relationship by meeting regularly with a spiritual director. This companionship inspires people to experience authenticity in their lives as they connect with and explore their relationship with God. The purpose is to deepen one’s spirituality and growth, paying ever closer attention to what God is inviting you to. God is the real director in the relationship. The spiritual companion is a professionally trained, active companion who helps you to recognize, appreciate, and be attentive to the movement of God in your life.

Ignatian Spirituality Project Dayton:
ISP Dayton is grateful to partner with Bergamo Center to offer regular overnight retreats for men and women in recovery from addiction and homelessness. Our teams also offer regular spiritual reflection sessions in the community and work with Mercy Manor, Saint Vincent DePaul and Good Shepherd Ministries in Dayton.
We are always looking for volunteers to drive participants to Bergamo, facilitate overnight retreats, lead spiritual reflections and simply walk in companionship with people in recovery across the community. We rely on the generosity of our volunteers and our donors to make our ministry possible! Please contact Allison Loecke at email@example.com for more information or check out our ISP Dayton website.
