Spiritual Direction, Spiritual GrowthThis clear and practical guide to what happens in spiritual direction throws valuable light on something that is a huge help for many, yet sometimes seems a little unnerving for those considering it. It includes a number of first-person accounts - from spiritual directors and from those they have guided. It provides insight into why individuals seek direction, how they are guided (for example in the business of prayer), and what it is like to be in a relationship of spiritual direction. The book offers an all-round picture of the process, and will be of particular interest to those wondering whether to seek a spiritual director. "Reflecting on wide experience, Peter Ball offers us a book full of practical wisdom. It will serve as a fine introduction to spiritual direction but will also be read with profit by those of long experience. Clearly written, it is profound in its teaching and implication.£8.00£8.00

Though he counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles of spiritual direction were never written down. Now two of his longtime students, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird, have taken his famous course in spiritual direction and supplemented it with his unpublished writings to create the definitive work on Nouwen’s thoughts about the Christian life.£12.99
