Directory

The process of finding the best Spiritual Director for you is part of the spiritual journey.  San Diego Spiritual Direction, in the following directory, provides a convenient way for seekers to connect with Spiritual Directors.  

We recommend that you start by reading the first page in this section: “What is Spiritual Direction?”  Following that, take your time reading the listings of our directors.  Pay attention to details that create interest in a particular director.  Notice the extent and the tradition of the director’s training, and how that might fit in with your spiritual tradition.  Read about the way each director conducts their form of spiritual direction.  Make a list of directors to call and questions you will ask each one.

Generally speaking, our directors have each participated in two year training specifically in the art of spiritual direction, followed by a 6 month internship.  However, trainings and requirements vary and the seeker is responsible for inquiring of each director as to their individual qualifications.  The information listed here is provided by the directors themselves and SDSD does not check or confirm any Director’s background, education or training.  Neither does SDSD provide education, certification, or supervision for Spiritual Directors.  San Diego Spiritual Direction does not evaluate, recommend or endorse any particular Spiritual Director.  

By accessing this directory, you understand and agree that SDSD is in no way responsible for the acts, omissions or services of any of the spiritual directors listed or for any other actions taken based upon the information furnished by SDSD.  By accessing this list you agree to only use the information for finding a spiritual director, and not to use the list for solicitation; I also agree not to reproduce, display, or distribute the directory of the information listed herein.
