Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction "Spiritual direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see and obey the real Director—the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul."
(Thomas Merton)

"The goal of spiritual direction is spiritual formation – the ever-increasing capacity to live a spiritual life from the heart."
(Henri Nouwen)


Spiritual Direction is an ancient ministry of the Christian community and can be described as the contemplative practice of accompanying a person or a group as they discover the spiritual in everyday life. Often this ministry is called Spiritual Guiding or Spiritual Companioning. The role of the director is to walk with the seeker as she/he looks honestly at her/his relationship with God.

Spiritual direction is not counseling or therapy although it may be appropriate at times to share personal and relational struggles in this context.

Cindy Waddick holds a certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Mount Carmel/Haden Institute. If you are seeking a Spiritual Director, or are interested in learning more about spiritual direction, contact: cindy@selahresources.ca
