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.
Audire challenges your preconceptions of what it means to listen, to be attentive, and to be present to those who seek a greater relationship with the Divine. I continue to be amazed at the spiritual transformation that one experiences through the Audire program and continue to extend the hand of spiritual friendship to those in need through spiritual direction, hospice, and hospital chaplaincy.
