The “webmaster” of this site is Stephen Murphy. This site is my small way of letting interested people know about spiritual direction. I have been blessed to journey with folk as a spiritual director (SD)/ companion / soul friend since 2000. That’s the year I graduated from the Shekinah School of Spiritual Direction at St. Benedict’s Retreat and Conference Centre, just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba. St. Ben’s continues to be a special place of personal spiritual renewal, through times of silent retreats or workshops. My spiritual journey has been enriched from study in Bible colleges (Pentecostal and Mennonite) and the University of Winnipeg culminating with a M.Div. & STM from the Faculty of Theology in 2010.  My training in spiritual companioning / direction and spiritual care (CPE for chaplaincy) and present employment as Co-Minister of Pastoral and Spiritual Care in Grace Bible Church (a small non-denominational group of Christians) and as an on-call spiritual care provider at Health Science Centre (Winnipeg’s primary tertiary care hospital) provide practical ways to put my studies and experience to use. Regular meetings with peers keeps me grounded and accountable. The greatest gift of being a spiritual director is the way it integrates my ecumenical theological studies and contemplative spirituality with the sacred task of accompanying others on their unique spiritual journey. I believe a deep ‘knowing’ of the Holy is possible and the only way to true living. You can contact me by email: stephen.murphy@mymts.net or by cell phone: 204-687-2494
