The practice of ‘Spiritual Direction’ is the help one Christian gives to another to enable them to pay attention to God’s personal communication to them. So the focus is on experience and the real ‘director’ is the Holy Spirit. It is a privileged place of speaking and listening which helps a person to discern how God is leading them in their life and how they might respond with integrity. The director can offer guidance about different ways of praying, tools for discernment and spiritual reading. Above all they provide a safe, confidential space for exploration of the important questions which may arise in the Christian life and give encouragement to grow in one’s relationship with God.
