• Virtual and in Person Spiritual Direction – Spiritual direction concerns your relationship with God – observing God’s movement through the circumstances of your life, considering how to respond, and growing in trust that you are indeed a dwelling place for God’s spirit.  Commonly understood, spiritual direction is:
  • A relationship between two persons centered in and open to the work of the Spirit;
  • A time for the seeker to share how one experiences God’s presence or action in one’s life and what seems to be blocking or retarding responsiveness to God’s movements;
  • A relationship through which the seeker opens oneself to accountability for spiritual practice, especially prayer;
  • An opportunity for receiving suggestions which the director deems suitable.
Spiritual Direction is available by telephone, online via Zoom or in person.

In-Person Introductory Workshop for Centering Prayer

Might God’s Spirit be inviting you into a deeper, more meditative prayer practice?  Consider:  Have you already developed a personal discipline of prayer?  Lately when you settle down to pray, do you simply find yourself tired of the sound of your own voice?  Do you sense an increasing attraction to a place of interior silence?  If this resonates in you, read on.

The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
To the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.

Designed for those who are beginners in the practice or for those who want a refresher.  All participants must register in advance by accessing our website registration process or calling Ruah office.
