Iona will take you out of what is familiar and awaken new insights and wisdom in your heart. Led by experienced Iona guides, Sally Taylor and Andrew and Wendy Rudd. Accommodation at Bishop's House and the Catholic House of Prayer. September 20-28, 2019. Read more and register.

We Are Here to Serve

Ravi Verma has been a spiritual director for more than 25 years. As chair of the SDI Coordinating Council, he seeks to "support the bridge builders who are called to be present to all who are seeking the mystery." His own life has been one of bridge building between the East and the West, Hindu and Christian. He is particularly interested in the practice of spiritual companionship as sacred activism.
