Spiritual Direction

At the Kairos Centre we have both male and female Spiritual Directors.  You might come on retreat and meet with a Spiritual Director daily or for example at the beginning and end of your retreat. You might wish to see a Spiritual Director regularly and this would usually be every four to six weeks.

Spiritual Direction is open to anyone wishing to explore their faith journey. There are no expectations or special requirements, just an interest in sharing your story with another person.  We suggest a donation of £25 for each session of spiritual direction. However, we would not wish anyone to miss the opportunity for spiritual direction and would encourage you to give what you can afford.

Our Spiritual Directors are guided by the Retreat Association Spiritual Direction Guidelines.

The central scene is a mandala inviting us to go on an “inward journey” as we meditate on the growing of the Kingdom of God. The biblical figures presented in the other six scenes can be our guides and companions on our “outward journey” to the poor, the oppressed and forgotten.

“We define Christian spiritual direction as help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God’s personal communication to him or her, to respond to this personally communicating God, to grow in intimacy with this God, and to live out the consequences of the relationship.”
