​​In usual terms, a teacher or mentor instructs, guides, or helps another in the process of gaining understanding, knowledge, or skills.

But a spiritual teacher's role is different from the usual teacher in that the goal is not so much to transmit understanding or knowledge, but instead to somehow nurture an awakening in the student to their own pre-existing true nature.  The spiritual teacher points the student to the Divine within us and blows the dust from their eyes as the student learns to listen to the Spirit of Truth within.

We are all in some way each other's teachers.  We gain knowledge and wisdom along life's path, and then share it with others.  

Gaining spiritual wisdom is a life-long process, one which we must approach with a beginner's mind. 

Take a look at individual or group spiritual direction or some of the talks, workshops, and retreats and hear your Spirit whisper: grow.
