Three questions addresed in this video are:

1. In what ways do the images of "imprisonment" and "being on the margins" challenge you personally?
2. How do you go about managing the initial conversation between spiritual director and spiritual directee?
3. Do you have any particular objects or artefacts in your room that remind you of the collaborative and deeper power dynamic that characterizes the work of spiritual direction?
