You will discover five roles in spiritual direction: friend, companion, guide, director in a strict sense, and formator. Rev. Tetlow presents a synthesis of the best practices in listening, and throughout the program, he guides you using scripture and the wisdom of great spiritual writers.

This program is an invaluable resource for any Christian giving or finding spiritual direction today.

  1. Sister Angie

    Outstanding resource–a must have for directors & directees

    I could not stop listening to these CDs. Father Tetlow gives clear, inspiring information in a practical manner. As a directee, I learned much and also found much clarified for me. I am giving my spiritual director this CD series.

  2. Paula

    Fr. Tetlow was humble, direct, and down to earth!

    Fr. Tetlow was humble, direct, and down to earth in giving insightful suggestions and reflections on the art of spiritual direction. As a spiritual director myself for many years, I’d recommend this program to other spiritual directors–beginners or experienced.
