We live in a time when many people are seeking spiritual guidance from a wide range of sources. This course will provide a forum for exploring major historical developments in Christian practices of spiritual guidance and their compemporary expressions, as well as assist participants in recongizing how they receive and share in spiritual guidance in their own lives. Through discussion board reflections of weekly readings, key elements and forms of contemporary spiritual guidance and direction will be examined. Particpants are invited to practice spiritual companionship attributes such as spiritual hopitality, reflective listening, empathy, and contemplative engagement with other people in their own setting and regularly journal about those experiences– as background for discussions, and mostly importantly as reflective practitions of spiritual companionship. A 2-3 page reflection paper will help synethesize learning and complete the course.

Dan served as core faculty and program directory for the Institute of Spiritual Companionship; adjunct faculty and chaplain at Seabury-Western Theological Seminary teaching courses in sprituadl direction, advanced spiritual group leadership, and spiritual formation in small groups. He founded Lamb & Lion Spiritual Guidance Ministries in 1993 and has over twenty years of experience as a spiritual direction for indviduals, groups and organizations.
