Spiritual Direction is for those who are seeking to live a more authentic life fully centered in the real world and Divine reality. In short, it is for those seeking metanoia, a new level of consciousness, from which to be awake to the suffering and brokenness of the world and awake to the divine reality of love and unity that underlies and knits everything together.
In a welcoming and confidential environment, Don, as your spiritual director, will help guide you to recognize the blocks and opportunities to moving closer to holding together both the dualistic and non-dual aspects of life in a big-hearted/big mind manner. In directions session you share whatever is up for you that is most important, both the challenges and joys. You set the agenda by deciding what to focus on and the direction session is designed to help you deepen your understanding emotionally and intellectually of what is happening in your life.
You get to practice life as it is: by being fully present and awake to your interior thoughts and feelings and to the external world. As you move through blocks to God, you often see in hindsight how they were also the doors leading to a deeper relationship with the Divine and a suffering world.
Topics that arise in direction often include: your relationship with how you understand the meaning of God/religion/spirituality, the evolution of religious beliefs, deepening an understanding of both the universality of God and personal intimacy with God, how to understand different stages of faith and different state experiences with the Divine and the importance of practices designed specifically for you to quicken your journey to wholeness.
