Getting started

“Get Acquainted” Meeting

If you’re considering spiritual direction—either as an individual or as part of a small group—you’re welcome to schedule a “get acquainted” meeting. This first meeting is free so you can find out more about My Inner Life and ask questions. Afterward you and David can prayerfully seek the Lord’s guidance about moving forward.

Individual Sessions

After having a “get acquainted” meeting and mutual discernment about moving forward, individuals can schedule continuing spiritual direction sessions on this website. Each session is one hour. They are typically scheduled once a month. The cost per session is $90.

Group Sessions

After a get-acquainted meeting and mutual discernment, it may appear that group spiritual direction would be most helpful for you. From time to time My Inner Life offers new small groups. Each typically has three members and the director.

Group meetings work a little differently than individual meetings. At each monthly meeting a different member of the group takes the role of the directee—the one who shares his/her concern for prayer and discernment—while other members join the spiritual director in praying and listening to the Lord about the matter.

Group members continue to take turns month after month. Typically they find they benefit both from their sessions as directees and their sessions as pray-ers/listeners.

Spiritual direction groups meet for one hour once a month for an agreed-upon duration. The cost is $30 per person per month. Most often meetings are scheduled at regular intervals (such as the first Tuesday of each month). David usually sets a schedule for the group after talking with members about their availability.


Fees are payable to David Brannen via check, cash, or Venmo. Payment is due 30 days from the date of your session. This fee is guaranteed for at least 12 months.


If you live in or near Louisville, Kentucky, you can meet with David at his office in New Albany, Indiana. It’s just a few minutes from downtown Louisville. If you live farther away, you can schedule an online meeting.
