This book is a fundamental reference for spiritual direction. For Barry and Connolly, this Christian practice is about helping people develop their relationship with God and deepen their spiritual experience. They are specialists in both spiritual exercises and contemporary studies in psychology. They offer a relevant and detailed study of the many questions facing those people responsible for ensuring spiritual accompaniment. Their objective is to form those who have this mission. This book, of a highly practical nature, is the fruit of reflection and practice. It analyzes the different stages of the relationship with God, showing how to establish and enter into it. In this way, it helps the believer to pay attention to God and to recognize the reactions and feelings that arise in prayer.
