Navigating the Interior Life Video
(with Dan Burke Regarding his New Book)
Navigating the Interior Life: Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God. Spiritual Direction is for every person. The Spiritual Direction Book Club will soon begin reading Dan Burke’s book on spiritual direction. Today’s video is an interview with Dan Burke regarding his book, which was really birthed by the many, many readers of SpiritualDirection.com from around the world, who really desire deeply to know the Lord but, at times, struggle with this how to do this, how to get out of spiritual struggles, etc. It includes endorsements from experts on the value of the book. Dan talks about the blind spots we all have and the need we have to have others help us overcome these blind spots. Do you need a spiritual director? This book helps us explore an aspect of spirituality sometimes only available to seminarians, and those in academic settings. He speaks of the normal progress one undergoes in maturing in the spiritual life, and how, with one’s spiritual director, one can identify and correct areas that need improvement. Topics covered are how to listen to the voice of God, how to yield to the Holy Spirit. And, there is much, much more in his book which will benefit the beginning spiritual directee (or those who have never had spiritual direction) and those more advanced souls, who are seeking to go into the deep in their spiritual lives. This book is a great handbook for everyone!
