SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP IS: 

Spiritual companionship (also called spiritual direction) is a centuries old practice of reflecting on your spiritual journey with someone who can walk with you, encourage you and help you discover God's grace and movement in your life. 

”Spiritual direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see...the real Director — the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul.” Thomas Merton

SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP CAN HELP YOU:

To discover God's grace in your journey, and to help you to know, love and relate to God more fully. Spiritual direction can help you to grow in your spiritual life, overcome obstacles or roadblocks in prayer, walk through a chapter of forgiveness, celebrate your breakthroughs, discern an important life decision or help you to walk the sacred path towards healing.

 WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BE IN SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP: 

Only a desire to get closer to God and having a desire to see how God is moving in your life.

SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP TAKES PLACE:

Online via Zoom meetings, by phone, or if you are in the Houston area, in person.

 SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP IS FOR:  

Anyone who is longing to become more aware of God’s presence in her/his life. Perhaps you have just returned from a retreat and want to explore that; perhaps you are entering a new chapter in your life or are discerning a decision you need to make. Perhaps there is spiritual breakthrough or block that you would like to work and pray through. If you are drawn to spiritual direction, then it is for you.

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION VS THERAPY: 

Spiritual direction is different from therapy in that it focuses on the movement of God in a person's life; it assists one in recognizing the presence of God and helps to grow that presence so that it positively effects other areas of a person's life.
