Spiritual Direction on Retreat. If you have had little retreat experience it helps to meet with the retreat director to clarify what you desire from these days, how to structure your time, and to be in the silence. The spiritual director is not there to ‘direct you’ but to be with you as you look at the direction in which life is unfolding for you. Personal issues can sometimes surface while in a quiet time. A meeting with a retreat director can offer a safe place in which to explore these. The meetings are in confidence.
Ongoing Spiritual Direction. The value of ongoing spiritual direction, which is usually monthly, offers an opportunity to reflect on the lived experience of the past month, notice where the invitations to Life are emerging and discern future directions and significant decisions. For many people it is an opportunity to reflect on their spiritual journey. Ongoing spiritual direction is offered at Siloam. The cost is $70 per session as recommended by CRA (Catholic Religious Australia). This is negotiable for people on a low income.
