Title
Spiritual Direction in the Reformed Tradition
Abstract

This article calls attention to the absence of spiritual directors in the Reformed tradition, describing how spiritual guidance or counsel was provided historically as well as noting current practice. From a definition of the practice in the Reformed tradition, it proceeds to describe the role of spiritual guides or companions. A description of the nature and process of spiritual transformation is provided, including the principal characteristics of spiritual maturity. Spiritual direction is distinguished from psychotherapy, and occasions for referral are recognized. Books representing different facets of this subject are recommended.
