Spiritual direction—or, as it is sometimes referred to, spiritual companionship—is a form practice in which two people sit together in a space of inquiry and contemplation. It is an opportunity for the directee to discern the presence of the Sacred through all aspects of their life—work, relationships, celebrations, struggles, and all other modes of activities and human interactions.
While Igal’s training as a spiritual director was done in a Jewish context, the principles of this practice are universally applicable to all seekers. Igal’s extensive study of the teachings of the world’s major religions makes him comfortable to sit in direction with followers of all faiths, as well as with those who profess to follow none.
Igal’s work as a spiritual director is strongly influenced by his interest and training in trauma healing.
At present, Igal offers spiritual direction sessions exclusively online, via Zoom. He is also part of a team that offers spiritual direction services to rabbinical and cantorial students at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York.
