A safe non-judgemental space to be listened to—and heard—while you explore your path toward personal wholeness and deeper intimacy with God
Spiritual Direction is a safe non-judgemental space to be listened to—and heard—while you explore your path toward personal wholeness and deeper intimacy with God.
It is a sacred conversation that asks "where is God present and active in my life?"
Despite the name, Spiritual Direction is none directive. My role as a Spiritual Director is not to tell you what 'spiritual direction' your life should take. Rather, it is to support and accompany you on your journey to help you discern the path God is inviting you to travel.
As you share your journey, I listen deeply and intently to notice and discern the movements of God in what you say. I draw your attention to these movements and give you the freedom to explore and reflect on them further to see where they may lead.
Along the way we may explore your deepest desires, passions, and the longings that stir you. All of these arise from your deepest and truest self—your union with God—and are signposts that point the way.
As we explore your journey in this way, you will begin to recognise how God is present and active in your life, and how he is gently leading and inviting you into your own particular way of being in the world.
Spiritual Direction will help you nurture, deepen, and explore your relationship with—and awareness of—God. It is a regular spiritual practice—like prayer or meditation—that helps you grow spiritually.
There may also be a specific reasons you want Spiritual Direction; for example:
Our meetings last an hour and are confidential. I hold your beliefs, faith, tradition, values, culture, and lifestyle choices with reverence.
We can meet in person at my home in Nottingham, or online via Skype (or similar).
For ongoing Spiritual Direction, we usually meet every 4-6 weeks. If you would like to do a program such as the Spiritual Exercise, short retreats in daily life, or periods of guided prayer, then our meetings may be more often. We can discuss how frequently you wish to meet at our initial meeting.
It would be a privilege to accompany you on your spiritual journey, and I'd love to hear from you to arrange our initial meeting. It's free of charge with no obligation to meet again. It is an opportunity for you to meet me, tell me what you’re looking for in Spiritual Direction, and see if working with me is right for you.
