Video: Spiritual Direction with Young Adults Workshop

November 8, 2019 – Our Fall 2019 workshop, "Spiritual Direction for Young Adults" was held on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at Ignatius House in Atlanta, Georgia. The workshop was recorded, and the video is available below. Thank you to all who participated!




Reflection Questions

The presentation allowed some “table time” built in for discussion for those viewing in groups. Those viewing on their own can also reflect on the following questions during this time:

  1. What expectations do young adults bring to direction? Are they seeking someone to listen? To guide them? 
  2. What challenges have you faced relating to these directees? What graces have you experienced working with them?
  3. Have you ever directed a young adult who was estranged from the Church? Or who never identified as religious to begin with? How did it impact spiritual direction? How do you reach these young adults?
