For many of us, Seeking Connection 2018 was like diving into a pool of kindness. It was an opportunity to meet and welcome diverse people who all honor and make space for spirit. The SDI Conference in St. Louis was participatory from beginning to end. Not something you watched, but something you shared. Keynote speaker Rev. angel Kyodo williams showed the way -- offering a compassionate challenge to let our differences guide us to our common humanity. We wanted to share the highlights in photos and videos. So, we created a new page on our website. Have a look.

Many of us feel besieged these days, and can fall back on the instinct to build barriers, seemingly for protection and safety, instead of bridges to community and understanding. We can feel prompted to act based on our fears, rather than invited to look beyond them. Spiritual Directors International is committed to engaging and wrestling with these challenging emotions through contemplative listening to discover how we can respond with greater empathy and peace.
Fragmentation characterizes much of our global experience. Political and religious ideologies divide. Separation from nature threatens human survival on our planet. Lack of a spiritual center leaves many living a divided existence.
