Forming a Spiritual Direction Practice

Do you feel called to walk the vocational role of a spiritual director but are uncertain of how to follow through? Are you either pursuing your certificate or have already received it, but now what?

How do we be faithful to our vocational call and pay our rent?

These are good questions.

In an introductory seminar-style approach, we will discuss how to navigate the practical nuts and bolts of forming your own spiritual direction practice. We will talk about how to define spiritual direction in an easy to use short description usable on your site and in brief conversations when others ask what you do. In addition, we will talk about business entities, websites, business cards, taglines, scheduling tools, ethics, fees and accounting, networking, and self-care.

Kathi Gatlin

Kathi Gatlin founded Boldly Loved and co-founded the Companioning Center to bring together her two greatest passions: spiritual formation and teaching. In this, she utilizes her DMin. in Leadership and Spiritual Formation from Portland Seminary and her M.Ed. earned through George Fox University.

Her greatest joy is walking alongside others, individually and in groups, in their own spiritual journey, sharing ways of understanding God anew through contemplative prayer and teaching, and to see them grow in the depth of their own understanding of who God is and who they are in relationship with God.

Kathi is a spiritual director, supervisor, writer, spiritual formation group facilitator, retreat speaker, and leadership mentor. For more information about Kathi, check out
