As a spiritual director transplanted to Central Florida from Alaska, Audire has been a providential wellspring of spiritual community that has grounded my life. Through Audire, I found my own spiritual director, have attended several annual retreats, and experienced the six-month Personal Spiritual Deepening Program. The first time I walked the grounds at San Pedro, I knew Audire and San Pedro were soul friends.
Audire helped me to be present to God by being present to myself. As I began listening to my life, I experienced and spiritually grew from the Inner Teacher of God’s presence and love through faculty, peers, and reflection as we “tended the Holy” together in theory and practice. I highly recommend this experience in spiritual growth in one’s “holy longing,” whether or not it leads to becoming a spiritual director.
