Katie Evans: Breathing Space

'To listen to another’s soul into a condition of disclosure and discovery may be almost the greatest service that any human being ever performs for another’ – Douglas Steere

Friends value the primacy of experience of the Spirit and God’s work in our lives above theology and doctrine which are deemed secondary. What then constitutes individual spiritual nurturing and being nurtured for Friends?

Spiritual direction is an ancient practice of cultivating life as a transformational journey that is lived from inside out at a deeper level. It began in the early Church and was later practiced by Desert Mothers and Fathers, and also by early Quakers. Spiritual nurturing can happen on a one to one basis or in a group. This course offers opportunities to those with an awareness of their spiritual longings or struggles to explore ways of being Spiritual Companions by listening to the spirit and each other to answer the question, ‘What makes spiritual direction/nurturing distinctively Quaker?’
