'Spiritual formation in a Christian tradition answers a specific human question: What kind of person am I going to be? It is the process of establishing the character of Christ in the person. That's all it is. You are taking on the character of Christ in a process of discipleship to him under the direction of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. It isn't anything new, because Christians have been in this business forever'. (Dallas Willard)
Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, 'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest'.
Our journey together begins with your story. We create a sacred space whereby you can encounter God and witness His actions within the events and circumstances of your life. Together, with the director and led by the Spirit, you seek God and pray with an expectation of encountering God's love, grace and mercy in a life-transforming way.
We allow the Spirit to guide our journey to what we experience. Through the Spirits conviction we encourage our clients who are weary and burdened to lay everything down before Jesus Christ and to seek His rest. We use dialogue, prayer, contemplative practices, mindfulness & meditation, visualization, imagery and free association; but the foundation of our practice is our encounter with Jesus Christ in the midst of our daily life. Healing, growth and transformation occur as an outcome of our encounter with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
During our sessions we encourage your spiritual formation from within a sacred space led by the Holy Spirit. We enable you the time and freedom to reflect on the experiences of your daily life, and as this contemplation takes place, you begin to discern God's presence and the work that He is doing in your life in a deeper, more intimate and personal way. Together we explore ways in which you can open yourself more fully to the presence of God through prayer, meditation and other forms of spiritual disciplines. It is a time of reflection and seeking God in the midst of life, and of drawing closer and deeper in relationship with Him. As the spiritual direction process unfolds you will find growth, transformation and new life in relationship with the One who created, loves, sustains and upholds you.
We invite you to join us in an opportunity to seek God and encounter hope and healing as we journey together towards the next chapter and the next story ....
