The author has explored the dynamic encounters which happen in Spiritual Direction, as a place of Mystery. In the narratives, autoethnography helped explore the encounters between the director and the directee, within themselves and the presence of the Divine. Research literature was engaged in order to enlighten and challenge these data and thus help clarify the author's conclusions.
