Are you interested in becoming a spiritual director?
Rolling Ridge offers a full array of spiritual direction training as part of our Listening Collective 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 2024. 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. We encourage people interested in Gateways to first discern their vocation to deep listening through our Way of the Heart series.
Along with our basic Gateways program, Rolling Ridge offering advanced training in missional spiritual direction through our Deep Listening in the neighborhood cohort training.
