Based in North Andover, MA, Rolling Ridge offers a full array of spiritual direction training as part of our core programming curriculum to strengthen the ministry of spiritual companionship through New England and beyond.
- Gateways to God is our foundational training in missional spiritual direction, offered in a two-year cohort program with 6 onsite training retreats. Our next residential ONSITE cohort is scheduled to launch in 2022. While there are many online spiritual direction training programs, Rolling Ridge believes that spiritual companionship is best "caught" and "taught" through face-to-face training and in-person community in a retreat cohort setting. Thus, we are waiting until the pandemic passes before scheduling our next Gateways training.
- Along with our basic Gateways program, Rolling Ridge offering advanced training in missional spiritual direction through our Deep Listening programs in the neighborhood, in the congregation, and in one-on-one ministries.
Along with our spiritual direction training, Rolling Ridge has created a growing network of spiritual directors and companions. Through our Insight program, spiritual directors meet monthly for guided supervision. We have also launched a new Peer Supervision ministry. If you are interested in Insight or Peer Supervision, please email us.
In addition, Rolling Ridge now offers spiritual direction enrichment days in the spring and fall so that those who provide spiritual companioning can continue to hone their listening skills in being present to their directees.
