Spiritual Life, Spiritual Direction: God in You, Part 4 of 5 ~~ Dan Burke, President and Founder of Catholic Spiritual Direction and the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation and author of Navigating the Interior Life, recently joined Johnnette Benkovic on Women of Grace: Spiritual Life, Spiritual Direction, and God in You to share his story of conversion and how you too could achieve spiritual growth through the purgative, illuminative and unitive ways.

In the fourth episode of five, Dan Burke talks about the dark night of the soul which is usually the bridge between the purgative and illuminative ways and then delves into the characteristics of the illuminative way and finding your predominant fault.
