Thursday, March 11, 2021 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM
This half-day event is for budding and seasoned spiritual directors who practice deep listening as spiritual companions…who listen others into Life.
Through a plenary session, two break-out sessions discussing practical topics related to spiritual direction, and a closing conversation with a panel of seasoned spiritual directors, we hope participants will:
• Experience an emerging, supportive community of companions in the practice of spiritual direction
• Engage in practical conversations related to forming or enriching a one-on-one practice of spiritual direction
• Glean and share insights to deepen our purpose as spiritual directors
• Discern the start or adjustment of a spiritual direction practice
“Living into a vocation of spiritual direction, especially in these days, it is imperative to pause on a regular basis, connect with other listening companions, rehearse essentials and find enrichment to sustain the journey.”
-John Kiemele, Spiritual Director & Rolling Ridge Program Director
