This book explores the call to spiritual direction as a sacred task, and as a journey of faith. The authors, all with decades of experience in spiritual formation and training, have helped design many of the most respected spiritual direction programs in the country. Their collective spiritual wisdom is gathered here on the core topics for any spiritual direction program, along with guides for presentation, resources, and reflection questions.
Presented by Mercy Center, a leading spiritual direction program in the United States, this handbook addresses questions asked by every spiritual direction trainer about how to present key topics. It also provides guidance for individual seekers looking to further their own spiritual growth. Contributors include such luminaries as Mary Ann Scofield, Jim Neafsey, Don Bisson, Jim Keegan SJ, Bill Creed SJ, Lucy Abbott Tucker, Maria Bowen, Joe Driskill, and Jim Bowler. Topics include contemplative listening, discernment, the wisdom of the body, ethics, male and female perspectives, sexuality, and prayer. Each contribution features reflection questions and suggestions for further reading.
