Fifteen years ago, Susan wrote Candlelight. A book which aimed to “show” spiritual direction through narratives and reflections on actual conversations with directees. In our time together Susan will reflect on what she experiences in spiritual direction, now, as well as, offer a conversation among spiritual directors and directees about our “inside” experience of this holy art of listening for God with another person.
