Places of Worship

Spiritual Directors International is an increasingly diverse learning community. During the educational events, we share sacred time together and participate in contemplative practices specifically designed to celebrate our diversity.

SDI also respects the desires of participants to gather with people within their religious traditions, and SDI honors the ecclesial authorities that oversee ritual norms within religious traditions. It is our hope that participants who visit local places of worship will be ambassadors of spiritual direction, helping the local community learn more about the value of spiritual companionship.

To facilitate locating places of worship, SDI provides the following list. These are places of worship with a twenty minute drive of the hotel. Participants may want to visit one or several spiritual communities while in Toronto.

Note: We have done our best to check information for accuracy. Many houses of worship operate on seasonal schedules, so please call ahead for worship times. If you notice information is missing or incorrect, please notify events@sdiworld.org.

During the Seeking Connection educational events, a peaceful on-site meditation space will be available twenty-four hours a day.
