Leading Group Spiritual Direction Practicum (In-Person)
- Monday 09/19/2022 - Monday 04/17/2023
- 6:30pm - 9:00pm EST
Spiritual Directors are invited to join us for the Leading Group Spiritual Direction Practicum (in-person) beginning this September.
In this 8-session offering, participants develop the background and skills necessary to form and facilitate contemplative spiritual direction and group spiritual direction. In addition, each participant will facilitate a spiritual direction group as part of the practicum experience.
Through prayer, experiential learning, small group sharing, and reflection, participants will immerse themselves in the process of guiding groups while being mentored in the actual experience of facilitation. Participants are expected to be spiritual directors who have a desire to be present to God on behalf of others, to grow as contemplatively, and have an experience of group dynamics.

WHAT OUR SPIRITUAL DIRECTORS SAY ABOUT THE LEADING GROUP SPIRITUAL DIRECTION PRACTICUM
With a long history and love for teaching in the church, I'm well acquainted with the tension and discomfort that often builds in the silence when we ask a question or invite a new perspective. In the Group Spiritual Direction Practicum, we gain a new appreciation of the holiness and possibilities that silence makes room for, holding space for the Spirit to speak.
~ Chris Slabbekoorn, Spiritual Director
