I offer Spiritual Direction training in the San Diego, California area. Other Sustainable Faith teachers offer the same training in key locations throughout the United States and Europe.
Spiritual direction training will serve you well if you care about listening to people’s stories about their relationship with God. After the training, you’ll find yourself listening to people in a whole new way – one that will serve you and others well if you’re involved in any relationship or form of ministry where one-on-one conversation, discernment, and prayer matter deeply. Over the course of nine months, you’ll journey with your cohort as you pay close attention to your own spiritual development, and as you explore and learn about the practice of spiritual direction.
Here are what others are saying about spiritual direction training:
“I am a pastor who has benefited from spiritual direction myself. I am committed to help leaders in my church get trained in spiritual direction so that together we can help people in our church grow in spiritual and emotional health.”
“This training gave me time to examine and nurture my own spiritual journey. I am changed and grateful.”
“I know how easy it is for me to want to give advice to another person! This training taught me how to facilitate the person’s ability to hear from God rather than from me, a much better deal for them.”
“The training gave me tools to help others become more aware of how God is working in their lives, to understand what God is doing, and to act on God’s invitations for transformation.”
Over the course of nine months I offer five modules, each two days long. Each module includes a combination of group and individual exercises, interactive group discussions, instruction, and practicing the skills needed for spiritual direction.
In our work together you will:
- nurture your own spiritual formation
- engage in personal spiritual disciplines
- read literature in the field of spiritual direction and formation
- learn how to offer individual and group direction
- participate in group discussions
- learn tools for self-awareness
- understand paths of spiritual growth
- engage in reflective exercises
