Spiritual direction is the practice of meeting with a spiritual companion in a structured, safe space in order to explore your inner life; or, in religious language, explore with your companion your relationship with the Divine or with Mystery.
It is an opportunity for you to discern the presence of the Sacred through all aspects of your life—work, relationships, celebrations, struggles, and all types of activities.
Igal’s work as a spiritual director is strongly influenced by his interest and training in trauma healing. He is training to become a certified practitioner of NARM, a healing modality for developmental or attachment trauma. He is also training with the founder of NARM, Dr. Laurence Heller, to become a NARM Master Practitioner.
In addition, Igal has been training intensively since 2015 with spiritual teacher Thomas Hübl, whose teaching involves advanced modalities for trauma healing.
Igal’s training as a spiritual director was done in a Jewish context; however, the principles of direction are universally applicable to all seekers. His extensive study of the teachings of the world’s major religions makes him comfortable to sit in direction with followers of all faith traditions, as well as with those who profess to follow none.
Spiritual direction sessions can be done face-to-face or online, via Skype or Zoom. Sessions are typically 60 minutes long and may include a meditation component.
