ABOUT MICHAEL J MURSCHEL, SD, MA

 

For more than a decade, Michael Murschel’s private practice in Spiritual Direction has provided highly personal Spiritual Direction, rooted firmly in the Christian Faith, focusing primarily on Catholic and mainstream Christian traditions. His approach is relational and experiential, connecting the sacred dots between individuals, families, congregations, and communities. Fluent in some 50 religious traditions, he often guides people through the dizzying array of contemporary spirituality to help them moor themselves in the solid underpinnings of the call of the Holy Spirit in their lives, deepening their closeness to Jesus Christ, nourishing themselves with ongoing catechetical formation, prayer, regular use of the Sacraments, with emphasis on Reconciliation, scriptural study, and the Eucharist, in order to become all which they were designed by God to be.
