I have spent the last two years training to be a spiritual director in the Stillpoint program (http://www.stillpointca.org/ ), and I am willing to offer my services for free. I am a warm, caring person who loves people and works for peace. If you’d like to meet once a month to talk about your life from a spiritual perspective, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(see http://www.quakerbooks.org/AnthonyManousos). I have been a Quaker for 30 years and have lots of experience with “clearness committees” and the spiritual discernment process. You can learn more about me at http://laquaker.blogspot.com/2013/09/becoming-human-being-fully-alive.html
What is spiritual direction?
Spiritual direction is an ancient ministry, a unique one-to-one relationship in which a trained person assists another person in the search for an ever-closer union of love with God.
Stillpoint offers a two-year training program in The Art of Spiritual Direction (click here for details), and also provides references and resources for persons who are seeking spiritual direction.
Spiritual directors listen carefully to the unfolding of directees' lives, to help them discern the ways in which God is leading them.
Spiritual Directors meet regularly (usually once a month) with persons who are seeking to share and explore their journeys of faith. The term "spiritual direction" has a long, rich history, and the term is still used today even though the practice of spiritual direction consists much more of "holy listening," rather than direction in the sense of offering guidance or direct advice.
A Spiritual Director is a privileged witness in the spiritual unfolding of another person. The focus is on the relationship between the "directee" and God, much more than on the relationship between the director and directee.
