It is hard to find a place we can share things that are matters of our hearts without being judged.  When I mention my Action Research from Pepperdine University – the eGroup-SpiritualDirection – with some friends, they were interested and shared their comments with me.  These two comments help introduce the project.


One person was captivated by the “e” (electronic) part.  She said Internet access works well for her. She loved the idea that she does not need to see others most of the time.  She can be free to feel vulnerable as she shares her deep spirituality with others in a safe environment.


Another person focused on the fact that eGroup-SpiritualDirection is not about sharing opinions or judgements about each other or actions of others.


EGroup-SpiritualDirection is a gift of our empathic listening.  Guided by the Holy Spirit, participants listen to each other’s sacred story, and reflect on what they heard by asking a simple question.  As a result, participants may be able to deepen their contemplation in prayer and be aware of the voice of God as they discern and commit themselves to their God.
