Spiritual Director Training

Spiritual Direction is primarily a "charism", a Holy Spirit energized gift to God's people. The practice of it can deepen one's capacity to connect with God and others. Whether your goal is to become a "Spiritual Director", or to clarify, focus, and rejuvenate your own spiritual journey, or your ministry, attending a School of Spiritual Direction can have a significant impact. Please visit the contact page if you'd be interested in participating in a school.
