Who listens to your spiritual life? Who is a witness to your inner work? Who helps contain your journey?
I am a gardener, and like many gardeners, I know that gardening begins in the soil. Physical gardening is so similar to spiritual gardening and I often think of spiritual direction as soul gardening. In spiritual gardening, the components are within yourself. It′s all about the internal work you do.And, sometimes it is nice to have a companion gardener, someone with a detached eye to remind you what resources you have and help expose what illusions exist within.That is what a spiritual director is, an inner journey coach, a soul gardener who accompanies the journey of connection with self, others, creation and the Divine.
