Spiritual Direction

For the Godfull, Godless, and All those Wandering Somewhere in between.


What is Spiritual Direction anyway?

“long, loving look at the real.” -Walter Burghardt

Spiritual direction is the process of becoming more aware of our connection to the good, the true, and the beautiful, as we learn to savor the goodness in our lives, and sort out difficult life situations and choices through discernment alongside a trained Spiritual director in a non-judgmental and fully affirming environment.

Individual Spiritual Direction

Individual Spiritual Direction is for anyone and everyone looking to explore and reflect more deeply on their spiritual path, grow in awareness of God’s presence and action in their life, or seek discernment through life’s many transitions in a non-judgmental and fully affirming environment.

Dungeons & Dragons & Divinity

In Dungeons & Dragons & Divinity we use role-playing games as a medium for self discovery and deeper connection in the form of group and individual spiritual direction. Each session begins with a brief meditation and ends with a time of intentional reflection.

About Ryan


Ryan Cagle (he/him) is a self-described “trailer trash theologian” currently living in Flagstaff, Arizona, where he works to curate experimental faith gatherings for 20-30 somethings for the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, along with being the Director of a multi-church collaborative youth ministry called The Flagstaff Youth Cooperative.

His love for the evolutionary vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is only rivaled by his passion for creating resources and opportunities or those trying to navigate the wilderness that is a life of faith and spirituality.

Ryan spends his free time binging Netflix shows with his spouse and designing games with his two feral children!

Who is Spiritual Direction for?

Spiritual Direction is for anyone and everyone looking to explore and reflect more deeply on their spiritual path, grow in awareness of God’s presence and action in their life, or seek discernment through life’s many transitions alongside a trained Spiritual Director.

What if I am not a Christian? Or Religious?

There are no particular faith requirements for those who are seeking to enter into Spiritual Direction. Directees may be Christian, Muslim, Agnostic, Atheist, and so on. It is not the job of the Spiritual Director to make disciples of their own faith tradition but rather to accompany directees on their our journey of becoming by honoring the sacred story of the directee though deep listening.

Is Spiritual Direction like Therapy or Counseling?

Spiritual Directors are generally not trained in psychotherapy or counseling so we do not diagnose or attempt to “fix” anyone’s problems. The role of the Spiritual Director is to focus on God, spirituality, and life discernment. Even though there is some overlap in methodologies and setting, Spiritual Direction is not a substitute for therapy or counseling.

What kind of training have you received?

I have received training through an apprenticeship at the Phoenix Center for Spiritual Direction in Phoenix, Arizona. Apart from formal training in the specific ministry of Spiritual Direction, I have served in various pastoral roles in congregations for over a decade.

How Will We Meet for Sessions?

All Spiritual Direction sessions will be conductive via Zoom video conferencing.

How Much does it cost?

Individual spiritual direction sessions are $50 per session. Payment via Cash App, Venmo, PayPal, etc. is due within three days of the date of the session. I will send email invoices as reminders. I do also provide needs based discounts so do not let money prevent you from inquiring about Spiritual Direction.
