There are often many people in our lives but few with whom we can share the depths of our spiritual journey. If you are someone who finds yourself listening to others, perhaps it is time to seek a deeper understanding of the spiritual path. Is it time to grow your skills in accompanying others along the way? Spiritual direction takes many forms, informal and formal: guiding, companioning, befriending, counseling, mentoring, and sharing. Join the School for Spiritual Direction at beautiful Adelynrood to discern more about this call to holy listening. The training will be offered for one week in June and August for four sessions over two years.
Classes will begin at 3:00 pm on a Monday and end after lunch on Friday. Wednesday will consist of a directed quiet day to which others are invited. Tuition for each one-week component is $590; this includes all meals, room, program fee, all materials, attendance at the Wed. Quiet Day, and the opportunity to practice Spiritual Direction. All faculty have been trained in recognized spiritual direction training programs and are experienced directors.
A discount is available when registering and paying in advance for more than one session. See the registration form for information on this discount.
