INDIANAPOLIS AREA SPIRITUAL DIRECTORS, 2019 Thomas Merton, O.C.S.O., a Trappist monk and 20th century mystic, stated, “The task of a Spiritual Director is to help others recognize God’s grace and find any barriers which keep them from being prayerful people.” A Director should help guide you into a deeper life of prayer which will assist you to discern the movement of the spirit. The Spiritual Directors listed below are in Spiritual Direction Training Programs or have graduated from one. When picking a Spiritual Director we suggest you: • Talk with 2-3 Directors. Who do you feel most comfortable with as you continue your spiritual journey? • Ask if they have a Spiritual Director. They should be actively involved in Spiritual Direction for themselves. • Ask is they are in a Spiritual Directors’ Peer Supervision Group. This group helps Directors stay accountable for their direction of other people.
