Spiritual Direction

Training Programs



Together in the Mystery


Together in the Mystery offers supervisor training for experienced spiritual directors.  Designed for those currently offering supervision and those discerning a call to supervise others, Together in the Mystery combines on-site training with long-distance supervision and mentoring over the course of a year.  Training begins with a three-day contemplative practicum held at a sponsoring institution.  Following this, participants receive a year of long-distance supervision and mentoring by instructors, then return to the sponsoring institution for a second three-day practicum.
