This course will serve to continue to train mature students in the art and practice of spiritual accompaniment. The content and format provide an opportunity for an expanded knowledge and experience of the ministry through the practice of supervised spiritual direction. Through lectures, class discussions, spiritual exercises, and the supervised practice of spiritual direction, students will not only learn critical skills for the practice, but also benefit from the hands-on supervision of their practice. Students will meet with a minimum of 3 directees outside of class time, for supervised spiritual direction. Through this experience, both students and supervisor(s) will continue to learn about the persons, process and practice of guiding fellow pilgrims deeper in love, faith and hope in Christ. Students are required, themselves, to be in regular monthly spiritual direction.
