Spiritual Directors & Retreat Leaders
Seeking the Spirit Within verifies that each person listed here has been certified by a program of spiritual direction formation and is both going to spiritual direction themselves and participating in Reflective Practices of Spiritual Directors with qualified facilitators.
Remember, it is up to you to choose your spiritual director wisely. You are encouraged to speak with one or two directors in order to establish a comfortable fit for you and the director. Let each person you speak with know what urges you to seek a relationship with a spiritual director, what you expect, and learn what you can expect from the director. Listen for the way the spirit is guiding you in your selection process.
