By exploring the contemplative life, these offerings provide learning opportunities to deepen in understanding and experience of spiritual practices. While not meant to be alone in our spiritual journey, participants are able to join with others to discover:
- Spacious Time: to catch our breath and notice God’s personal stirrings and invitations
- Welcoming Openness: to invite our honest experience and genuine expressions of life
- Listening Hearts: to notice God’s presence and movements together
- Supportive Connections: to share companionship and resources that nurture contemplative experiences with the Divine as expressed in the Holy Spirit, Jesus the Christ, and the Father/Mother of embrace and love.
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.
A yearlong cohort learning experience that explores and enters into the unique journey of moving towards an integrated, whole and embodied life offered by God.
To face the difficult topics of our day that deal with race, gender, and political issues, this class looks to hold conversation around places of commonality whereby we can generously listen to one another.
This silent retreat, while experienced personally in a community of others, invites one to come away from life’s endless chatter and distracting demands to an inspiring (and challenging?) listening space to slow down.
