Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Directors

Our Spiritual Directors are available to accompany you in a process of reflection and response rooted in the sharing of your own sacred stories and spiritual issues.

Through friendly and compassionate listening and gentle inquiry, spiritual direction helps awaken you to the Divine in all of life and helps you to notice God’s presence in the moments of daily life. If you are interested in spiritual direction, please contact any of the following Tau Center trained and Certified Spiritual Directors below.

We need someone who encourages us when we are tempted to give it all up, to forget it all, to just walk away in despair… We need someone who can suggest to us when to read and when to be silent, which words to reflect upon and what to do when silence creates much fear and little peace.
