In the work of spiritual direction, certain themes or ‘presenting issues’ commonly arise. Listening to Your Soul considers thirty frequently presenting subjects and offers tools for exploring and understanding the reality that lies behind them, from an experienced spiritual director. Subjects include discernment, change, goals, choices, hopes, family issues, parenting, regret, anger, doubt, perseverance, work, prayer – or lack of, disappointment, possessions, guilt, fear, endings and more. For each area, Listening to Your Soul explores the way the theme tends to arise in spiritual direction – what are the questions, feelings, dilemmas which we may experience and encounter? – offering reflective questions, exercises and prayers to deepen understanding and discern God in the questions and uncertainty.
