Strengthening Spirit – Releasing Potential

Spiritual Direction


Have you been wondering about seeing a spiritual director or enquiring about what spiritual direction is?  We welcome your enquiry and would be happy to meet with you to introduce you to spiritual direction and how it can support you.  At Kardia we offer individual and group spiritual direction.

Kardia spiritual direction with its Ignatian emphasis offers contemplative and generative listening and questioning wherein the spiritual director and the spiritual directee are attentive and responsive to their interior experience of Mystery in their midst. Ignatian spiritual direction contemplatively and actively seeks to help a person grow in relationship with God as Mystery in all things, at the same time as nurturing a deepening personal sense of identity, vocation and mission.

Our graduate spiritual directors have each defined spiritual direction as uniquely appropriate to their practice – click here to see more.

Our team of spiritual directors are formed givers of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius and as spiritual directors in the contemporary Ignatian tradition.

They companion people as they find the direction in which God is inviting them towards love and service.

Marlene’s particular interest is in imaginative contemplation and narrative. She believes that everything a person needs and desires at the deepest levels of personhood can be unlocked and enacted through God’s grace.

Bernie’s particular interest is in accompanying people in their search for grace and to unlock their potential by strengthening their spiritual self.  By listening to the movement of God through discernment, we are each called into freedom and to move towards love, in turn releasing our potential to co-create with God.

Cost for spiritual direction  is $85 -45 minute session.
