Salesian spiritual direction

The peculiarity of Salesian spiritual direction or accompaniment is its community nature. This is true. And yet I think that the weak point lies in the personal-individual dimension. True, Don Bosco's individual direction was simple and brief; it was the whole ambient, the environment, the relationship that was the determining factor. But in our changed context, which is not a mono-agent monocultural context, do we need to change? In my experience, certainly, the personal moment cannot be played down.
