It won't take long in the retreat before you'll notice I talk a lot about 'listening' and 'discerning' the voice of God. If you find yourself wanting to go deeper into hearing and understanding how God is working in your life, you may want to consider spiritual direction. A retreat center is a good place to find one. Mercy Center Auburn, the retreat center where I facilitate my day retreats, describes spiritual direction as follows:
Spiritual Direction is a time to reflect on your prayer life and to nurture your relationship with God. Spiritual Direction helps the person who is seeking a deeper relationship with God to notice the presence of God in the various events, relationships and structures of one's life. The Spiritual Director, as a companion, listens and is attentive to the spiritual life and journey of the directee, seeking always to enhance and deepen the relationship between God and the directee. The relationship of spiritual direction is sacred, safe and strictly confidential.
