Spiritual Direction with Carl McColman
Spiritual Direction is a process of cultivating a deeper relationship with God through an ongoing conversation of reflecting on your spiritual journey with a companion — a spiritual director, guide, or "soul friend" to use the lovely Celtic term for this kind of ministry.
This is for anyone who seeks to grow closer to God and to cultivate a more meaningful and conscious relationship with the Divine Presence. You do not have to be a monk, nun, priest or minister to receive (or give) spiritual direction. Historically, this ministry flourished especially among the "ordinary" folks.
