“...It is the art of listening carried out in the context of a trusting relationship. It is when one person is trained to be a competent guide who then “companions” another person, listening to that person’s life story with an ear for the moment of the Holy, of the Divine.
Jeffrey S. Gaines, Presbyterian, USA
“The whole purpose of spiritual direction is to penetrate beneath the surface of a person’s life, to get behind the façade of conventional gestures and attitudes which one presents to the world, and to bring out one’s inner spiritual freedom, one’s inmost truth, which is called the likeness of Christ in one’s soul. This is an entirely spiritual thing, for the work of rescuing the inner person from automatism.”
“Spiritual direction is about having an intuitive guide join you on your unique journey. It operates in concert with the best practices of emotional health and wellness. Having an experienced spiritual companion engages the imagination and gives wings to the longings of the soul. It brings peace in chaos and hope where there was none. The freedom to learn, grow, wonder, question, dream and doubt become portals to spiritual growth.”
It's a walk together that reveals surprises that awaken our life journey, help discern our deepest desires and live the life we've always wanted.
There are times in our life we feel an inward nudge to pay attention. To acknowledge an inner desire for deeper meaning in our life. Perhaps our old thinking has us stuck. In all of our achievements and failures we long for something more. Maybe our thoughts of God have become too small, too rigid or there is a call within us to develop our own understanding and expereince.
Maybe our life circumstances require a decision, a new direction. Sometimes we may feel like we are not where we were, but not where we'd like to be. On the other hand, maybe we just want to explore a deeper engagement with the spiritual life we already have been experiencing. These are just a few reasons to consider getting a spiritual director.

Henry Rojas has the capacity to discern the deepest spiritual longings of the human soul, and to bring these forward in such a way that individuals can recognize these needs and pursue the understanding, prayer, and relationships they need to grow spiritually. I have observed Henry handle individuals’ complex spiritual questions, knotty objections, and angry tirades at God and the church. He handles these encounters with grace, wisdom, and calm, and has the ability to companion and draw an individual to grow through these struggles. I am convinced that Henry has practiced the art of allowing the Spirit to work through him during his work as a spiritual director, because he has the uncanny ability to “nail it” and lead people into a deeper relationship with God.
