Spiritual Direction can be defined as a soul journey with another into a new realm of spiritual relationships and an opening into a new world of spiritual wonder shared with another. The art of spiritual direction focuses an ongoing spiritual journey fostering inner growth and allowing persons to recognize God at the center of their lives. The journey is always personal and individual. In the process one person dialogues with another who is schooled in theology and spirituality. Sharing one’s story with a caring and qualified other provides insights and encouragement for those who choose to enrich their spiritual life.
