Spiritual Direction is conversation with a spiritual companion. A Spiritual Director is not a therapist, but a person who listens and may be able to offer observations about your relationship with God, understanding of God, or how the Holy Spirit may be working in your life. St. Ignatius of Loyola understood the role of a spiritual director as one who helps another grow in relationship with God by listening, offering, and then getting out of the way. Ignatius House honors this commitment.
While On Retreat
During a retreat, you may have the option to meet privately with any of these individuals for a spiritual conversation. If on a silent retreat, this is a permitted time to speak with someone about the burning questions on your mind or stirrings of your soul. Participation is optional and included in the cost of your retreat. Your retreat director will offer instruction about how to sign up and where to meet.
