This week-long session gives you the opportunity to experience a contemplative retreat with daily spiritual direction, without traveling to a retreat center and leaving your daily routine
You will be taught different prayer styles and forms, provided with Scripture to use in prayer, and given a daily session with a spiritual director. The spiritual direction that you will receive is not counseling, but is similar in that it takes place during a one-on-one conversation, and does often result in healing. You will have access to a forum for discussion, and receive resources guiding you in prayer.
Spiritual direction is about listening to our inner movements as we read, reflect and meditate on Scripture. It is about the ancient art of spiritual listening, one to another. For centuries men and women, both lay and ordained, have been recognized as having a specific calling to help others draw closer to God. They are gifted in the movement of the Spirit and helping us discern where God is present and working in our lives.
A group of spiritual directors will guide us through this retreat. They come from a variety of denominations, each with the call to spiritual direction.
