What is Spiritual Formation?

What is Spiritual Formation?

Spiritual Formation is the process through which we come to uncover the answer to the following questions:

  • Who Am I?
  • What is my Source and where do I obtain Inner Guidance and Peace?
  • What are my unique gifts and how am I called to share these gifts for my own fulfillment and for the betterment of the human condition?

Spiritual Formation might also be understood as the process through which we find:

Meaning, Purpose and Connection in our lives.

A formal process of spiritual formation gives us the tools to discern the answers to these questions in an unconditionally supportive environment, free from judgment.  While we may find support for spiritual formation within some of our religious traditions, the inner longing which drives this search to know ourselves, our origin, our gifts and how we are called to use them, is universal and therefore independent of doctrine or belief.

Lauri Ann Lumby and Spiritual Formation

For over twenty years, I have provided spiritual formation for adults.  I have journeyed with hundreds of men and women in their search for meaning, purpose and connection and have witnessed the fruits of this search as clients and students have come to discover, embrace and live out their own unique giftedness.  In uncovering and living these gifts, they have found fulfillment, peace and joy.  I facilitate this journey of spiritual formation through:

  • Spiritual Direction and Spiritual Counseling
  • Creative Mentoring
  • Classes
  • Workshops
  • Retreats
