Spiritual Direction Supervision Training Program
New this fall, the Spirituality Program is partnering with Together in the Mystery to offer a one-year training program for spiritual director supervisors. The training program is for experienced spiritual directors who seek to serve as supervisors for practicing spiritual directors and spiritual directors in training..
“Spiritual directors seek supervision as they attempt to grow in their ability to notice and respond to God’s presence during their spiritual direction practice,” says Maria Bowen, cofounder of Together in the Mystery. Dr. Bowen explains that “Spiritual director supervisors mentor, teach, and consult with spiritual directors as they grow in their abilities.”
This program was created for previously certified spiritual directors who wish to help other spiritual directors as they:
- identify what opens them to God’s presence during sessions and what distracts them
- perceive and better understand instances in which they hold space for directees to encounter God and those in which they distract directees from doing so
- offer spiritual direction ethically and with integrity
- celebrate their strengths
Participants in the spiritual directors supervisor training program will begin by gathering for a beginning weekend of contemplative practice, participate in a year-long instructor supervised practicum, and conclude with an ending weekend of contemplative practice.
