For Those Seeking Ignatian Spiritual Direction
Thank you for your interest in Ignatian spiritual direction! The Ignatian Spirituality Institute is privileged to work with several Ignatian spiritual companions in the North Texas area and we are able to help seekers and directors find one another from time to time.
In Ignatian terms, we understand spiritual direction to mean “help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God’s personal communication to him or her, to respond to this personally communicating God, to grow in intimacy with this God, and to live out the consequences of the relationship.” (Barry and Connolly, The Practice of Spiritual Direction) You can find more information about the Ignatian tradition of spiritual direction here.
The work of spiritual direction is to accompany you on your spiritual journey through spiritual conversations with persons trained and living in the Ignatian tradition of the Church who are excellent listeners and able help you reflect on your experience of God in prayer and everyday life.
