A thousand miles would you run to speak with another who you knew really felt it and yet when you got there, find yourself speechless! And yet your only joy would be to speak of it….words fruitful, and filled with fire.
The Author of the Cloud of Unknowing knew of our desire for spiritual conversation and of our joy in finding such a person with whom we can speak of God, the divine ‘fire’ inside all things. Grounded in traditional ancient Christian understandings of the heart as an organ of orientation and choice, rather like a compass, spiritual direction and companionship helps us describe the experience of God’s presence and movement within us. Here we are invited to live lovingly, gratefully and joyfully out of that place, simply loving our Beloved in and from the deep centre of our heart.
Conversations of the Heart has been established by Robyn Fitzgerald to provide a contemplative space to facilitate such conversations, through spiritual direction and companionship. Robyn offers retreat days, silent retreats and retreats in daily life, including the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius. Robyn also offers supervision for spiritual directors.
