Holy listening, soul friendship, spiritual direction

WHAT IS 'SPIRITUAL DIRECTION' AND MIGHT DIFFERENT WORDS BE MORE APPROPRIATE?

Here is a selection of views from people experienced in the area ...

"The director, and the person who is being directed, are both seekers; they are both parts of a spiritual direction, a current of spirituality, a divine-human process of relationship." (Kenneth Leech in "Soul Friend")

"The special friend who accompanies a person through life's journey .. is known by different names: mentor, prayer partner, companion on the way, guru, spiritual director, guide, growth buddy, co-discerner, spiritual father or mother, listener, spiritual midwife, confessor, sponsor, tutor, co-counsellor." (Ray Simpson in "Soul Friendship: Celtic insights into spiritual mentoring")
