Q?

What is a Spiritual Direction Relationship like?

A.

Spiritual Direction is a sharing relationship and empowers you to take responsibility for your own relationship with God, and we will never cross that line. We cannot live your faith for you and you cannot live it through us or any other person for that matter.

Although we believe it is appropriate at times to discuss psychological and relational difficulties in the context of spiritual direction, we are not psychotherapists, nor do we provide such services.

Q?

Is our time together confidential?

A.

Our time together is sacred, so our conversations are held in strict confidence. We will not reveal the content of our conversations to anyone unless required to do so by law or court order. On the other hand, you are free to share whatever you choose about our conversations with anyone.

Q?

How can I make the most of our time together?

A.

To enhance the spiritual direction experience, directees are encouraged to prepare for sessions with prayer and by reflecting upon things they want to discuss, take notes during or after the session on key points, follow up on things your director recommends and understand that spiritual growth takes time, effort, and patience. Also, consider taking full advantage of the many tools and resources available through IamSignificant.ca.

Q?

How do we meet?

A.

Our time together can be:

  • In person (where possible)
  • Skype Video Chat (Requires a free software download and a broadband internet connection)
  • by telephone

The best option can be determined after booking.

Q?

How often do we meet?

A.

It’s up to you! Depending on your individual needs we can meet as often as once a week or as seldom as once every few months. For sustained growth and progress, though, it is recommended that you meet with your spiritual director at least once a month. Spiritual direction can take place for just a few sessions or for many years.

Q?

What does Spiritual Direction cost?

A.

Our standard rate for Spiritual Direction is $150 per 60 minute session. That being said, our belief is spiritual direction should be available to anyone who genuinely desires it.  For this reason the fee per 60 minute session will be equal to your hourly wage/salary.

We accept Visa, Mastercard or PayPal, payable after our time together. An appointment is confirmed upon receipt of payment.

Cancellation for full refund must be received at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment.

Q?

What happens when I book my appointment?

A.

Upon booking, you will receive a package of information via email that includes our Soul Care agreement. This outlines the responsibilities, limitations and Code of Ethics for IamSignificant.ca Spiritual Direction. As well you will receive a link for payment for your session. An appointment is confirmed upon receipt of payment.

If for some unavoidable reason you need to reschedule your appointment, please afford us the courtesy of at least 24 hours notice so that the time can be made available to others. Private Spiritual Direction appointments are 50 minutes in duration and start promptly on the hour. Late arrivals are accepted but may be limited to the remaining time of the booking.

Q?

Ending our Spiritual Direction Relationship

A.

We support healthy termination of sessions. If you are planning to end our spiritual direction relationship, it works best if you let us know at least twenty-four hours before your last session. The final wrap-up session gives you the opportunity to talk about our time together, tie up any loose ends, get closure, and part in a positive way.

We do encourage periodic reviews of our time together as this can be helpful to raise your awareness of your progress. We will ask you to complete a Spiritual Direction Review form that looks at your progress and what you may want to work on next.
