SPIRITUAL DIRECTION WHILE ON RETREAT
Spiritual Direction is an opportunity to meet with an experienced spiritual companion in order to explore your faith journey and attune yourself to the voice of God in your life. These one-on-one confidential conversations assist you in structuring your day, how to 'be' in the silence and offer a safe space to reflect on any personal issues that may emerge while you are here. If you wish it can be a time to review the direction and priorities in your life within the context of your beliefs and values.
We strongly recommend daily Spiritual Direction if you have limited, or no retreat experience.
