Spiritual Direction

MaryAnn has been working on completing her training to obtain a certificate in spiritual direction over the last three years. She is about to graduate from the HeartPaths DFW program in May 2018.

Spiritual direction is a way of providing companionship and gentle guidance to those who want to deepen their relationship with, and experience of, God. MaryAnn meets with her directees once a month for an hour each time for this purpose.

Directees set aside time to be silent with God (to experience more of God’s presence) and journal regularly about their experience in that silent time. They also augment this with meditative Bible reading practices, spiritual reading practices and other spiritual disciplines, such as fasting.

If interested in pursuing direction with MaryAnn, she would meet you at a mutually-agreed upon location and discuss whether or not it’s a mutually-beneficial definition to meet as director and directee. This first meeting is free.

Because MaryAnn has operating expenses to provide spiritual direction, she must charge for these services. Directees can either elect to pay her set fee or bring their most recent tax return and MaryAnn will merely look at the gross income figure to determine the fee on a sliding scale.
