As we engage in the spiritual life, there are a rich heritage of practices to draw on: from prayer and meditation, silence and solitude, to communal practices of service, worship and generosity.
There is such a wealth of resources available concerning spiritual practices, prayer and formation. I’m so grateful that so many are providing these gifts*.
I am thankful for places providing rich resources for prayer and formation, such as: Renovaré, the Prayer-Course’s Toolshed, Into-deeper-waters. I’m also blessed by the places that encourage us to regularly engage in prayer through each day, like: Sacred-Space, Celtic Daily Prayer and apps like: Lectio-365 and Pray-as-you-go.
There are so many more I could add! (I’ve not even mentioned the Lectionary!)
The following is a small selection of prayer resources (other items can be found in the journal archive)
Finding a spiritual director
It could be that my location or availability mean that you would benefit from other options for spiritual accompaniment. I know many skilled in spiritual direction around the world. Amongst these are a large number who have been through Sustainable Faith’s School of Spiritual Direction. Do also consider looking for someone local to you through personal recommendations, other spiritual direction networks or your local diocese.
How to be trained as a spiritual director
If you have been the recipient of spiritual direction and you are now exploring what it would look like for you to serve in this art, I whole heartedly recommend Sustainable Faith’s School of Spiritual Direction is an excellent 2 year training program. Sustainable Faith train over 300 people each year in schools running across North America, the UK and Europe.
If you are a spiritual director looking for supervision please get in touch for details on my work in this area. I also have details here on my supervision practice.
