This is a wonderful book which really emphasizes the importance of creating a space of hospitality, where the directee feels safe, valued and welcomed. Margaret Guenther writes; “…spiritual direction is about holy listening, presence and attentiveness.” She spends the book unpacking what this would look like in a direction relationship and as she does shares with us many insights gathered from her experience as a spiritual director.
The last two chapters are incredibly powerful. In one she shares with us her analogy of the spiritual director as midwife. This is worth the price of the book all by itself. She concludes the book by giving a number of important insights regarding giving direction to women. This book is a valuable resource for the novice or experienced spiritual director.
