Rev. Robert Brumet introduces the Spiritual Direction program in this video. What is it? He interviews Rev. Jeanmarie Eck about her experience as a mentee (and now mentor) in Spiritual Direction. According to Jeanmarie, Spiritual Direction opened her awareness to how Spirit was working through all aspects of her life, not just her prayer and meditation practices.

"I began to ... see, through synchronicities and connections and my own desires, how Spirit was working in all ... aspects of my life."
–Rev. Jeanmarie Eck
