Spirituality is how we channel our desires and shape our actions, it is what gives us the energy and moves us into the world in a way that is meaningful and authentic. Spirituality animates, sustains and gives purpose and direction to the longing to be connected to ourselves, to others, to the earth, to God however s/he is understood.
“The true miracle is not walking on water or walking in air, but simply walking on this earth.” Thich Nhat Hanh
The very popular Developing Direction series offers practising directors the opportunity for continuing development.

Desire in Spiritual Direction
After a long period in Christian history when desire was frowned upon as suspect, we return at last to the joy of finding God in our deepest desire. Although familiar to many, this is still a ground-breaking insight for so many of the people we accompany. Susanne will help us to explore desire in spiritual direction and increase our confidence in drawing upon this in our work with others.
Susanne is the Advisor for Spirituality in the Rochester Diocese. She is responsible for spirituality events and formations, organising and allocating spiritual directors for the diocese. She is also trained in Ignatian Spirituality and very experienced in giving the Exercises.
