Natural Awakenings Lehigh Valley

Direction for Spirit

In a complex and hectic world, it is refreshing and nourishing to set aside time and space to pause, and in that pause, to notice and reflect on life. Mary Howe, a graduate of Moravian Theological Seminary is now offering spiritual direction sessions tin the greater Lehigh Valley area. Meetings are usually held once a month on a one-to-one basis.

“Although life has a spiritual dimension to it, spirituality too often is either ignored or placed in its own little compartment”, states Howe. “Spiritual direction is a way to explore and integrate this dimension into all of life as it unfolds.”

A spiritual director guides and accompanies those who are seeking answers to such questions as: “What is life-giving to me? Where do I find comfort?” A professional ministry of deep listening and reflective questioning, spiritual direction is an ancient practice that is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Some of the benefits of spiritual direction include sharing concerns, joys, and desires with a spiritual companion and receiving support around the decisions and choices of life. Although all topics are welcome, spiritual direction is not counseling or therapy. It is a personal conversation in an atmosphere of confidentiality, care and compassion.
