My practice as a Spiritual Director is grounded in the ancient practice of Cura Anamarum or Care of the Soul. While current usage of the term is rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the care of persons’ spiritual and emotional well-being reaches back as far as the collective memories of humans can be extended. It is the practice of helping another person awaken to the movement of the Holy in one’s life. The fruits of Spiritual Direction are a deepened awareness of and grace for one’s humanity, a sense of growing freedom and a deeper commitment to what your heart and mind hold dear in life.
Holy Listening is the foundation of all relationships between director and directee. The director invites the directee to listen deeply to his or her life, noticing and paying attention to one’s inner life. Frederick Buechner wrote about this kind of deep listening in his book Now and Then, “If I were called upon to state in a few words the essence of everything I was trying to say both as a novelist and as a preacher, it would be something like this: Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
