Graduate Day October 2014: Supervision for Spiritual Directors
We regret that the graduate day scheduled for Saturday 25 October 2014 is cancelled.
The October 2014 Graduate Day will focus on supervision for spiritual directors and will be led by Ruth Holgate. The day will begin with an overview of approaches to supervision, its application to spiritual direction, and a consideration of why directors need it. We will then look in more detail at an Ignatian approach that has discernment of spirits at its heart – seeking to describe a model for both individual and group supervision that is congruent with spiritual direction itself. As well as some input on the themes, there will also be practical exercises and discussion to draw on the experience of the participants.
