Spiritual Direction Training Program

Spiritual Direction Training

Spiritual Direction Training Program

Each person has a need to be heard and to share about one’s life because our stories matter. We believe to listen to another is sacred. And so we practice radical hospitality, listening deeply and valuing each person we sit across from. People who desire to  deepen their awareness of God’s presence and work in their life can meet with a spiritual director where they will experience this deep hospitable listening through the practice of spiritual direction.


Those who feel called to become spiritual directors and to listen in this deep hospitable way are welcome to apply to our training program. Download our information below.


Because of the unpredictability of the pandemic and a probable re-surge of Covid-19, we are moving our program online. As a result, we will be breaking up the first week intensive into smaller segments.
