For trained Spiritual Directors
Facilitated through Selah’s partnership with The Spirituality Center, St. Placid Priory
A course for trained spiritual directors who desire to expand capacity in their practice or desire to continue one’s own formation. Join in this time to remember, relearn, and practice what you know and want to know as a trained spiritual director. Through exploring topics, both known and new, engage with others who are also life-long learners through facilitated training, dialogue, and “real plays” for what you’ve experienced in actual spiritual direction sessions.
