EMMAUS SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL FORMATION AND SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

CERTIFICATE IN SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

1 YEAR PROGRAM

There's so much more you can learn with other people than when you're just reading scripture by yourself. The Spiritual Direction program has expanded my thinking about God, spirituality and how very different we all relate to Him. I highly recommend this program.

TAMMY PIERCE, EMMAUS GRADUATE

The ministry of spiritual direction offers the unique gift of relationality through the art of listening to God and to the directee.

In this course, we will consider the ministry, mystery, and mission of spiritual direction. Students will engage with key dimensions of spiritual direction including the theology of spiritual direction, mission, supervision, management, and professional ethics, to integrate these learnings into a professional spiritual direction covenant that is unique to each student. Exploring these aspects of spiritual direction will equip students to become spiritual directors with the wisdom, poise, and confidence required to serve others in this vital ministry. The course includes a practicum that involves training, offering direction to others, facilitated group supervision, and individual supervision. As we practice, reflect on, and develop in the ministry of spiritual direction, students will be affirmed and inspired to embrace their vocation as spiritual directors.
