What is spiritual direction?

 

Spiritual Direction is an ancient tool that Christians have used to journey with someone who is wanting to grow deeper in awareness of God and their true self. 

 

It is a slow conversation that asks the question, “what is stirring in you?” 

 

This often includes where you are seeing God in your life, what experiences you are having, and where you are desiring God.  The director then listens, asks gentle questions, and helps the directee (one seeking direction) discern the voice of God for themselves.

Spiritual direction is not

counselling or life coaching. 

 

 

I consider it sacred space as I

pray and discern alongside you.

I won’t offer counselling, but rather look

for traces of the Spirit as you speak. 

What does a spiritual director do?

A spiritual director or spiritual companion is someone who meets with you on a regular basis (usually once per month) and gives you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings. 

 

A spiritual director helps you explore the promptings of God in the midst of your daily life and supports your faith journey wherever it may lead.

How do I know if it is right for me?

  • Are you are seeking personal and spiritual growth?

  • Do you want a safe place to explore your spiritual experiences?

  • Are you yearning to connect to the Sacred in your everyday life?

  • Are you are in a season of discernment or uncertainty?

  • Do you want to deepen your journey with spiritual practices?

What can I expect in a spiritual direction appointment?

The focus of our time is the directee’s relationship with God, as it is experienced in all aspects of their life. 

 

The time will allow for the directee to discern what is God's voice and what is their own voice or desires .

 

There is often silence and gentle questions. If asked for by the directee, the director might offer spiritual practices that the directee might find helpful.

What I will do:

  • I will work to create an atmosphere that welcomes you and allows you to center into yourself.

  • I will ask contemplative questions that allow you to ponder and understand where God is at work in your life.

  • I will pray for you.

  • I will hold your stories as sacred and keep them confidential.

Where we will meet?

I work out of a few places in Langley and Surrey, British Columbia.  I am also able to connect virutally.

I respectfully acknowledge that I live and work on the traditional unceded territories of the Katzie, Kwantlen, Matsqui and Semiahmoo First Nations. My desire is to be a person humbly contributing to the ongoing work of truth and reconciliation. 

What Meg's directees are saying

It's hard to find people who can hold simple, creative and non-judgmental space for our complex spiritual experiences and well-being. Whether it's gratitude, lament, peace, anxiety, anger or laughter, Meg's insight and caring attention will connect you with God so that what you are experiencing can be uncovered, deepened and celebrated. If you are looking for an intentional time of slowing your pace, being in the moment, and listening for the voice of God through practices like prayer, silence, Scripture... I highly recommend spiritual direction with Meg. She will graciously sit with you and facilitate a living encounter with God that will permeate into all aspects of your life.
