Pay From the Heart
How Much Does It Cost?
I approach this question with a "pay it from the heart" perspective (which I learned from Mark Silver. This doesn't mean "pay what you want." Rather, it means "check in with your heart and find out what feels right." The aim for both of us is to feel good about what we give and what we receive.
Others doing Spiritual Direction work in the US charge anywhere from 50.00 to 350.00 for an hour session. I am not suggesting that you pay between 50.00 and 350.00. This is just the US context.
What is sustainable for me as a Spiritual Director includes the price of 75.00 for an hour session. If you can pay more than that, you are helping me support those who can pay less.
My minimum request is 50.00. But, if this service really supports you and paying 50.00 puts your food and shelter at risk, you are invited to pay less. You REALLY can trust your heart, even if that feels vulnerable. I get it, and you don't have to explain.
Here's how it works:
Decide if you want to work with me in spiritual direction.
If that's a "yes," then check with your budget and your heart about what number feels right.
Here's an example:
50.00 a session is my minimum request aside from the food and shelter exception.
60.00 a session might work well for you and be what you're able to contribute.
75.00 a session is my sustainable payment and the amount I'm asking you to pay, if you can.
100.00 a session is an additional payment. While still a fair among for spiritual direction, it supports me in serving those who pay less than the sustainable price.
When we schedule your first session, you will indicate what your payment from the heart will be.
