Spiritual Direction as an Instrument for Change in the World
Thursday, 20 April 2017
9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
For more than twenty-five years, SDI has been hosting a Leadership Institute, formerly known as the symposium. The purpose remains the same today. People who form, train, mentor, and supervise spiritual directors and other spiritual care providers gather to share wisdom collegially to help equip and grow their ministry and service of teaching and formation.
At the 2017 Leadership Institute, we will examine and discuss how spiritual directors can hold the space for an individual journey with Mystery in a way that invites participation in creating and maintaining healthy and equitable social structures. While we must start with our own interior journey, we will also look at the role formation and training programs have in the development of socially aware spiritual companions.
Tuition includes midday meal.
