Q?

What is a Spiritual Direction Relationship like?

A.

Our "style" is relaxed, down to earth, and not very churchy.  We value authenticity.  We don't typically employ a therapy model, and we gravitate towards relationship, specifically friendship.  We are "soul friends" sharing the road of faith together.

Our desire is to help resource and empower you to take responsibility for your own relationship with God, and discern and respond to the invitations of the Spirit.

One size doesn't fit all! We value you and your story. We'll talk over coffee, pray and listen together. We enjoy prayer of all kinds as well as spiritual practices that help cultivate a rhythm in your life that fits with the way you have been uniquely created. These may include different kinds of prayer, silence, liturgy,  music, walking in nature, writing, creating, gardening and more!

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 treated as such and held in strict confidence. This helps to create a relationship of trust and a safe place to share. 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 wish from our time together with anyone you choose.

Q?

How can I make the most of our time together?

A.

To enhance the spiritual direction experience, folks are encouraged to prepare for sessions with prayer and by reflecting upon things they want to discuss, take notes or journal during or after the session on key points, follow up on things your director recommends, and to 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 often do we meet?

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. It is recommended that you meet with your spiritual director once a month to facilitate growth and progress, however it is up to you and how you feel led. Spiritual direction can take place for just a few sessions or over 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 each time together.

We understand life happens and 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.

Q?

Ending our Spiritual Direction Relationship

A.

We like healthy transition and to mark these with prayer and gratitude. When you wish to end our spiritual direction relationship, it works best if you let us know at least twenty-four hours before your last session. The wrap-up session gives you the opportunity to talk about our time together, tie up any loose ends, pray together and to send you on in your journey with gratitude, joy and peace.
