The Spiritual Journey
This spiritual retreat supports participants in a deep exploration of their personal spiritual lives in a small group setting, deeply enriching their relationship with God/ Spirit and recognizing the ways that God is present and working in their lives. Experienced spiritual directors guide participants in developing their skills in deep listening and personal discernment. This is an introduction to the deep and expansive practices of Christian spiritual formation, the ancient practice of Spiritual Direction and a process whereby participants will discern the next steps of their spiritual journey. Open to all and required for those who desire to become spiritual directors. Clergy, lay ministry leaders, pastoral care providers, hospice and hospital chaplains and other helping professionals are frequent participants.
