Spiritual Direction Formation
Times are changing! Even though trust in institutions is eroded the desire to discover meaning in life is strong. In this time of somewhat confusing change, do you want to help others in their search for God? Are you a person others are drawn to confide in? Do you feel drawn to accompany others in their faith lives? If your answer is "yes" you may already be a spiritual director may be interested in training to become one. We believe there is a need for spiritual guides - people willing to walk with others in their journey of faith - in our society.
Manresa has offered training in the theory and practice of spiritual direction since the 1970’s; we understand it as being a ministry of accompanying others in their faith lives. In addition to training people who pursue our Diploma in Spirituality (Spiritual Direction) course, we support our graduates by offering spiritual direction, supervision and continuing professional development. In partnership withTogether in the Mystery, an established supervision training programme, we offer a course in supervision for spiritual direction. A practicum programme allows some graduates to develop their skills while engaging with retreats and other programmes while being mentored by memners of our Retreat Team.
