Calvin Wulf, Spiritual Director

Calvin draws from the ancient wisdom of Christian spirituality, prayer, meditation, contemplation, and mysticism. We read about these traditions in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The writings of early Christian spiritual masters are rich with insight and instruction. These early spiritual giants lived in constant amazement of God’s imminent presence and enfolding love. They have formed a firm foundation for Calvin’s guidance in pursuing the mysteries of God.

He also draws from spiritual imagery in Colorado’s diverse and colorful landscape that offers a full range of environs to illustrate the changing seasons of life’s journey. From hard flinty rock, to the refreshing gentleness of a lush green meadow, a still alpine lake, he can describe a setting that speaks to the myriad of human experiences of consolation and desolation.

The beauty of God’s creation cascades down from edgy mountain peaks, piercing the clouds, warming the golden glow of aspen trees, whispering to your heart in a timeless still small voice, disclosing the wisdom of God.

A solitary seeker finds a peaceful space to meet with God, hidden from the world by a living wall of trees, to behold the beauty our Lord.

Calvin is an able spiritual interpreter who translates the incredible love of God that is at work in every human, growing the image of Christ from the inside out. He understands that the role of spiritual guide is not only about representing God to the student, but also presenting the student to God in the same moment.

He guides in wisdom, compassion, and love.

About Spiritual Direction

Imagine yourself going on a journey to an unknown place where no other person has ever been. There are no maps and no clear path. Night after night you dream of seven mountains, with seven streams, and you must reach the seventh peak in order to embrace the greatest longing of your heart. The only thing you know for certain is your unquenchable desire to find it. How would you begin?

Your journey of spiritual growth is very much like that. The way is not clear and your path is not marked. You need a helper, or a shepherd, who is able to guide you. Everyone who earnestly desires growth in their spiritual life needs a director who is an experienced authority and healer. You want a gifted mediator who will raise holy hands for you in prayer.

Spiritual direction is a term that describes a relationship between such an informed and experienced spiritual teacher and a student who has a heartfelt desire to grow into the image of Christ. The relationship is one of talking, listening, discerning, and sometimes silence.

“Imagine yourself going on a journey to an unknown place where no other person has ever been. How would you begin?”

A spiritual director listens quietly but attentively to the stories of the student and the whispering of the Spirit. The director asks questions and gives feedback to assure clarity of understanding. There is discernment. Occasionally, the director will offer insights and guidance as prompted by the Spirit. It is a long term relationship often involving an initial commitment of one year. Some spiritual direction relationships last many years.
