Spiritual direction can be classified as understanding the general direction or trajectory of one’s soul; working with a spiritual guide to help unite one’s soul to God; and a process of growing in holiness. Covering each of these important pathways to peace and holiness, this book will serve the souls of those who are seeking to deepen their relationship with God and find their spiritual direction. Whether you are at the beginning of the process, a veteran of spiritual direction, or struggling outside of spiritual direction, this book will help you uncover a map of success for your journey.
Daniel Burke’s Navigating the Interior Life will give you the tools you need to understand how and why we grow and die in the spiritual life and what we can do about it.

Praise for Navigating the Interior Life:
"Most of us have questions about spiritual direction. What is it? Is it for me? What if I can't find a spiritual director? These questions and more are well answered in Dan Burke's book. The Lord is clearly calling all Catholics into a deeper union with him. This book, in a style which is both inspiring and practical, provides some of the Church's most important wisdom about how to respond to this call."
