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.
