Ruah School of Spiritual Direction

The Ruah School of Spiritual Direction is seeking individuals interested in engaging others in this evocative method of spiritual direction that encourages wisdom, understanding and compassion.

What is most needed in the world is the bedrock of spirituality. There is a vacuum of teachers who are available and understand the journey, the ups and downs, dangers along the way, who can point a direction and bring individuals to know the God who lives and loves in and through them. We are finding more commonality of belief that isn't dogmatic or aligned to a particular church's belief system. Practices and prayer forms have been shared from many traditions. We believe this is a time of Spirit transforming how we approach faith. People are able to renew their faith in a God who walks with them through spiritual direction and are able to verify with the Spirit what has been discovered through the use of our heads and hearts.
