Participants who apply and are accepted in the program will travel to Ghost Ranch for four, one-week (7 nights) residential intensives. In between the residential intensive weeks, field work and assignments will occur.
An experienced staff of distinguished spiritual directors will facilitate the sessions, using presentations, discussions, demonstrations, spiritual practices, contemplative exercises, role-plays and prayer.
The Stillpoint program is noted for engagement, community building and is a practicum. We exercise the art of spiritual direction with hours of practice with participants and staff so the graduates may experience and enhance their gifts in being spiritually present to others. Participants find that their lives change as their gifts of deep listening and presence emerge. Applicants must complete a written application, submit two personal/spiritual references and be available for a telephone interview with Stillpoint staff.
Note: “The Spiritual Journey” is a prerequisite for this program.
