HELP! I Need a Spiritual Companion – Introduction to Spiritual Direction
Presented by: Steve Bruce
Spiritual Direction (or spiritual companioning) is a safe, confidential conversation about a God that is constantly attending to us in our lives. This class is an introduction to concepts and practical ‘how to’s’ of working with a spiritual director. We will look at some of the practical information: criteria for selecting a director; expectations for direction; reasons for entering direction; and more. There will be a short demonstration of spiritual direction by the class facilitator.
