Called to be a Spiritual Director ~ Spiritual Director Practicum (Year 1)

September 18, 2020 / Friday - May 15, 2021 / Saturday

Dominican Associates

A Spiritual Director holds sacred the many stories heard in a one-on-one relationship or in a trusted group.

The Spiritual Director Practicum…

... is filled with contemplative spiritual practices, prayer study, and shared reflection
strengthens our ability to stay present
... attunes our listening to sense how the Holy Spirit is present in our lives and in the lives of others
... looks to Spiritual Giants to mentor participants during the formation process
...reminds that the ultimate healer holds up director and directee in all ways

Using an Ignatian spiritual framework, you are encouraged to find meaning in every moment. You are given space to deepen your relationship with God - the God who loves us into life. Through the process, move closer to uncovering your authentic self that guides the discernment of your calling.

Until it is possible to gather on the Marywood campus in person, the Spiritual Director Practicum will meet via Zoom. Help is available for those new to this technology. You will receive details regarding Zoom prior to our first meeting in September.
