“Where are you?”

Spiritual direction is an ongoing relationship that gives you the time and space to notice your unique spiritual growth, participate in the slow work of God, immerse yourself in the river of life, and respond to God, “Here I am.”

The Ignatian Exercises

Since the sixteenth century when St. Ignatius of Loyola created the Spiritual Exercises, people from all walks of life have been drawn to this powerful experience.

At the center point within ourselves we encounter the sacred

As we discern our path and our passions in life, we listen and respond more deeply to the presence and movement of the sacred there.
