Program Description:

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?

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 1:30 pm on Monday with check-in and will end after lunch on Friday. During the week, there will be a directed quiet day to which others are invited.

Program Fee:

Program fee and accommodation information will be on the registration form (coming soon).

The program fee includes all materials, attendance at the Quiet Day, and the opportunity to practice Spiritual Direction.

All faculty have been trained in recognized spiritual direction training programs and are experienced directors.

Rates for those sharing a room and for commuters can be arranged by contacting or 978-462-6721 x31.
