Marilyn Vancil Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction

"The simple gift of sacred Presence offered to another, providing a gentle but tenacious encouragement to open fully to God's loving Presence, and to co-discern with that person God's activity in every aspect of life."   — a description of Spiritual Direction by SoulStream

The purpose of Spiritual Direction is to support a deeper intimacy with God and to consider the very ordinary experiences of life in light of God's Love and Presence. By engaging the contemplative practice of listening to the Holy Spirit in the presence of someone who provides sacred space, one can discover the ways God is speaking to them and wanting to love and renew them.

If you are interested in pursuing spiritual direction, I would love to share more with you about its value and process, and to answer any questions you have. Please contact me to schedule a conversation and perhaps an initial complimentary session so you can understand and experience what it would be like to work together to support your life with God.

"As my Spiritual Director, Marilyn provides an hour of calm, safe, and protected space in the midst of a busy day, the turmoil of a situation, or just my everyday circumstances. She redirects my attention to where God might be leading me, what He might be inviting me into, or into where/what I might invite Him. In a Haiku nutshell, she helps me:
In circumstances
To find His Peace, as I rest
Secure in God’s Love."
