Spiritual direction

In the process of spiritual direction,

  • one can condemn
  • one can listen with sympathy, and give advice
  • one can listen and process: help see, help take responsibility, help to hear God 
One could ask: what is the experience of my own spiritual direction? A rich vein to be mined. Even if the experience has not always been great, or not always positive, there is much that I can learn. 

And then: even if I am convinced that I should listen and process, and help listen to God, perhaps some tools are needed, perhaps some training would come handy.
