Spiritual Direction
Holy Spirit Retreat Center

Life is a sacred path. At Holy Spirit Retreat Center, we wish to support the spiritual journey of persons through a ministry of accompaniment that is known as spiritual direction. These one to one conversations are an opportunity for persons to break open their sacred stories, awaken anew to Sacred Mystery living, acting, and present in all of life and to respond generously to the Holy One in a growing and deepening relationship.

What happens when you come to spiritual direction?
The director listens, reflects and helps you grow in your awareness of the presence and action of the Holy One in your life.

How often does one see one’s spiritual director?
Frequency of visits varies with the person and with the happenings of one’s life at
a particular time. Most people come every four to six weeks.

How does one find a spiritual director through Holy Spirit Retreat Center?
Contact Sister Pat Nelson CSJ at (818) 815 4480 or e-mail at pnelson@csjla.org.

Is there a cost for spiritual direction?
Yes, we offer a sliding scale that your director will be happy to discuss with you. We are happy to work with individual needs.
