Steve is available for Spiritual Direction, either face-to-face for those in Adelaide, or via Skype for people outside of Adelaide. He has a particular interest in providing Spiritual Direction for people in remote or isolated contexts such as rural settings or those working in cross-cultural settings.
What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual direction is the ancient practice of accompanying people on a spiritual journey as they seek to deepen their relationship with God, or to learn and grow in their own personal spirituality.
It is a reflective process through conversation where the Director helps a person pay attention to God and themselves. The Spiritual Director becomes a companion who walks with you through the “ups and downs” of life and all the interesting challenges that come!
Why Spiritual Direction?
Many people have questions about life, about God, about spirituality – and often there is no one to talk to about these things in an open, honest and non-judgemental way. Many people are finding that the well-worn path of traditional church no longer satisfies their inner longings and questions. They are looking for a safe space to explore the deep mysteries of life and find a new set of practices and habits that help negotiate the world they live in.
Many people feel like they have no-one that will truly listen to them and allow them to express who they are. This is the role of the Spiritual Director – an ancient practice being re-discovered in a post-modern world. It is for people of faith, or no faith, or not-sure faith – a way of asking the questions about deep things and searching for answers on a journey that hopefully will bring peace and joy!
Most people meet with their Spiritual Director once every 4-6 weeks. This can vary depending on circumstance, but overall, once a month seems to work best.
I believe that Spiritual Direction should be available to all, regardless of ability to pay. There is a suggested donation of $50 per session, however please feel free to contribute what you can. Your generosity will help others who can’t afford sessions to access Spiritual Direction too. If there are any financial issues, please feel free to discuss them with me.
