“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 Spiritual 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 retreat 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.

Reflections from Our Directors

Love Each Other

The beauty of the stories of Jesus is that they reflect the human condition today.  Loving one another is hard with family and with strangers.  The stress of a continued pandemic and all its variants, the daily rise in gas prices, earth crying out for help, injustice unchecked, and a war leads me to want to blame and shame someone. 

Finding Clarity Amidst a Life Decision

Regardless of a specific religion or spirituality, we all benefit from the act of reflecting on our feelings and noticing the direction they compel us. Observing whether you are drawn towards feelings of consolation or desolation can be a profound source of inner guidance and begin to bring your heart’s true desire into focus.
