Have you recently completed a spiritual direction training program and are wondering where you will get the supervisory support you need as you practice the art of spiritual direction?  Have you been engaged in deep listening or meeting with people in spiritual direction for quite some time and want a guided peer supervision group to help you deepen your listening? 

Beginning January 2024, you can be a part of a new guided Peer Supervision cohort called "EnVision" - a 6-session guided supervision group experience giving those of us engaged in ministries of spiritual direction/deep listening an opportunity to learn about supervision, grow through a Peer Supervision model, and forge trusting relationships that enhance our unique, varied listening practices. 

Supervision for spiritual directors is essential to offering the best possible version of this significant work.  After completing "EnVision", our hope is that you will gain both experience and further interest in supervision and can more confidently join one of the online Peer Supervision groups at Rolling Ridge or perhaps form your own in-person peer supervision group in your area.

The "EnVision" cohort will gather online monthly for centering worship, enriching fellowship, peer support, and practical small group time to reflect on specific spiritual direction/deep listening experiences.  The cohort is guided by seasoned spiritual directors, Gayle Kerr and John Kiemele, both of whom are involved in various programs at Rolling Ridge.

We will meet by Zoom on the third Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.  2024 Dates: 1/16, 2/20, 3/19, 4/16, 5/21, 6/21

Registration Fee: $300 for all 6 sessions; full time participation only; no refunds upon completed registration.
