Spirit is a natural dimension of every person.
The word spirituality describes an awareness of relationships with all creation, an appreciation of presence and purpose that includes a sense of meaning. Spirituality demonstrates that persons are not merely physical bodies that require mechanical care. Persons find that their spirituality helps them maintain health and cope with illnesses, traumas, losses and life transitions by integrating body, mind and spirit.
What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual direction is the process of accompanying people on a spiritual journey. Spiritual direction helps people tell their sacred stories every day. Spiritual direction exists in a context that emphasizes growing closer to God (or the holy or a higher power). Spiritual direction invites a deeper relationship with the spiritual aspect of being human. Spiritual direction offers a place to explore prayer practices, meditation, spiritual experiences, and our growing desire for significance. Spiritual direction is not psychotherapy, counseling, or financial planning.
