What is Spiritual Direction?

SPIDIR believes that everyone would benefit from having someone to talk to three or four times a year about their journey to and with God, and about their deepest values and experiences.

Message to All SPIDIR Spiritual Directors on Covid

SPIDIR is now suggesting that Spiritual Directors may resume face-to-face meetings with their Directees if both parties feel confident to do so.

This can take place outside, or as the weather cools indoors, but they must adhere strictly to the current Government Guidelines on social distancing, hand sanitising and face masks where appropriate. Both must take full responsibility for their own health and safety.

However, if Directors and Directees would be happier continuing with virtual meetings, that is entirely up to them.
