weather vaneThere is increasing interest in the spiritual journey and how it relates to living faithfully in today’s world.

This speaks of a need for trained spiritual directors. This training programme aims to deepen and extend the training given in Training in Spiritual Conversation.

Practice in Spiritual Direction

Participants are expected to be developing a practice in spiritual direction by accompanying at least 2 people regularly, preferably 3, in their spiritual journey, so as to be able to apply course learning and to reflect about practice in the supervision group which forms part of the training.

Course Content

Module 1 Developing a Beneficial Relationship

Module 2 The Transforming Work of the Spirit

Module 3 Standards of Practice

Module 4 Pastoral Applications


The programme is experience-based and uses small groups, role play, case studies, personal reflection, input and discussion as methods of learning. There is one written assignment for each module.

Spiritual Direction

Course participants are expected to be receiving regular spiritual direction.
