Contemplative Spiritual Direction: An Introduction

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Tuesday October 19, 2021 at 4:00 PM ET

What exactly is spiritual direction? Is it trustworthy, even biblical? How is it different from other ways of experiencing spiritual companionship? And what do we mean when we say a model is “contemplative”? Join us as together we explore some of these questions, and experience a taste of contemplative listening.

For those who desire an add-on of an individual spiritual direction session, an opportunity will be offered with your registration to sign up for a follow-up session with a spiritual director (1 hour), at a mutually agreed upon time on Thursday afternoon or Saturday (details will be sent via e-mail).

LOCATION:
Online via ZOOM

DATE/TIME:
Thursday, Oct 21, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm (Eastern Time)
