Spiritual Direction is a process through which we become more deeply attuned to our relationship with the Divine. Through conversation with a spiritual mentor/director in an atmosphere of trust, a person comes to a deeper awareness of the presence and movement of God in everyday life. As we share our dreams, struggles, triumphs and fears, we open to our deepest and wisest source of freedom and joy.
A Spiritual Mentor/Director helps a person notice, savor and respond to the movement of the Divine in the spiritual practice of ordinary life. The mentor/director is a listening and supportive person who creates an environment where one can look honestly at his or her relationship with the Sacred. The focus is different from a counseling or therapeutic relationship.
The Interfaith Spiritual Center offers individual and group sessions with trained spiritual mentors/directors. CONTACT US and call for an appointment. You are always welcome to ask for an initial complementary meeting with the director of your choice. The staff also designs retreats, classes and workshops on spiritual life, including practices from the world’s major spiritual traditions.
Fees for Spiritual Direction are on a sliding scale of $50 to $100. Each person decides what they will pay. Talk the fee over with the director. We wish to be available to all in need of our services. Please contact us for more information.
How to Find a Spiritual Director

4. What is their spiritual practice?
5. Do they have a specialty?
