Spiritual Direction

Heart of Life offers the ministry of Spiritual Direction – a traditional Christian practice in which seekers of God open their hearts to a trusted other, to grow in inner freedom and love.  Having someone listen deeply to our life-experience may open new ways of seeing “God who comes to us disguised as our life” (Richard Rohr).

How might the ordinary – and the not-so-ordinary – moments and events of our lives reveal this God to us in a family celebration … the loss of a job … the awareness of ageing … in disenchantment with the church … moments of solitude …?

If you would like to meet with an experienced Spiritual Director, please contact us.

Our Spiritual Directors hold appropriate qualifications, as recommended by Australian Ecumenical Council for Spiritual Direction.

Cost: $85 per session*

Booking and payment can be made on the ‘payment’ tab where you will see the drop down ‘payment – spiritual direction’.  A receipt will be available for download.
