Tending the Call ~ Ongoing Formation for Spiritual Directors (Online / Winter Session)
- Tuesday 02/08/2022 - Tuesday 04/12/2022
- 6:30pm - 8:00pm EST
Are there moments in your spiritual direction ministry when you feel the desire to deepen your understanding of the spiritual wisdom of the spiritual giants and contemplative practices introduced in the Spiritual Direction Practicum?
Tending the Call invites you to join a community of Spiritual Directors who feel called to revisit the teachings of foundational companions and re-imagine ways they might support your present-day ministries.
We invite you to share, study, and pray with a sacred community of practicing Spiritual Directors from the Dominican Center for Spirituality, as we seek a deepening relationship with God and are reminded of the journey of transformation that first called us to the practice of spiritual direction.
During our winter session of Tending the Call, revisit books read during the practicum that emphasized contemplative practices.
Learning to desire God's will is not something we can accomplish by resolve and willpower. It occurs only when we live so close to God's heart that the rhythm of our own heartbeat comes to reflect the divine pulse.
~ David G. Benner
In our winter session, we will take a deeper look at David Benner’s book Spirituality and the Awakening Self, and ask how his deep insights into the sacred journey of transformation and the unfolding self might speak to us now.
