Spiritual Direction l Companioning


At its heart, Spiritual Direction is about just that – looking at the direction in which you are going and asking yourself: Am I headed toward God or away from God at this time? Is what I am doing consistent with who I am, what I am passionate about, and what God has called me to? How have I responded to the voice of God so far?
The Spiritual Director helps a student listen to, look for, and articulate the movement and call of God in his or her life. It is not the role of the director to tell a student what to do or to solve problems for the student. Instead, the director is a companion in the spiritual life and together, the director and the student look for where God is already present in the life of the student, for ways to grow deeper in the awareness of God’s presence, and for ways in which the student might respond to God’s love and call.
