Are you seeking more meaning in life?  spiritual depth?  to be more faithful to the God of Love?

Spiritual direction, also called spiritual guidance or accompaniment, is a relationship in which one person accompanies another in his or her spiritual life;  it is the practice of listening for the sacred in everyday life; it is a process that pays attention to how our relationship to Divine Mystery can be deepened and transformed.

For over ten years Miriam has worked with retirees, students and professionals: teachers, pastors, chaplains, business entrepreneurs, social workers, and counsellors.

 A typical monthly, one-hour session of spiritual direction costs $75.00 and includes:

  • silence

  • noticing and naming where God's Spirit is active / present
  • discussion of an issue, relationship or situation

  • adherence to the “Guideline for Ethical Conduct” produced by Spiritual Directors International (see


  • prayer, spoken and/or unspoken
