Spiritual direction has many benefits:

deeper connection to your higher power, others, your true self, and the creation; more peace, contemplation, meaning, and purpose in your life; also learning new spiritual practices and methods.

The blessings are wonderful. New directees are always welcome.

Do you want to do spiritual direction with someone who understands the concerns not only of clergy and lay people, but also people who are "spiritual but not religious"? Click on the "Spiritual Direction" sidebar.

Do you want to do spiritual direction from the comfort of your own home without the expense and hassle of having to travel? Click on the "Distance Spiritual Direction" sidebar.


Imagine having a great marriage, one where you communicate effectively and resolve conflict safely. Imagine an exceptional marriage preparation course that teaches you this and helps you know what you each expect about things like money, sex, and parenting.

Imagine understanding each other’s personality type and how to work with your differences, not against them. If you are interested in being well-prepared for this huge step, check out the " Marriage Preparation" sidebar.
