This discussion is nice but I am really looking for places where I might get this training.
For me, any religious is capable of doing spiritual direction, as long as they have the capacity and the training. One does not need to be a priest.
Though that is the path I am on right now.
My view is colored by the fact that I am a Byzantine Catholic. In the Eastern rites all monks are viewed as spiritual fathers, this is why all religious are addressed as Father (instead of Brother) regardless of whether they are ordained or not.
