Spiritual Directors International

The Home of Spiritual Companionship

Jan Thurston from Alaska visits SDI home office

Guest Author: 
Liz Budd Ellmann, MDiv

Walking the Peace Path near the Spiritual Directors International home office, Jan Thurston told her story of being in the second formation class for spiritual directors in training at Mercy Center in Burlingame, California, USA. Jan explained that Donald Schell, who served on the founding Coordinating Council of SDI, was her spiritual director more than twenty years ago. Twenty-some-odd-years-later, Jan now serves as a spiritual director and creative retreat center director for Stillpoint Lodge and Retreat Center in Halibut Cove, Alaska.

Jan is pictured here admiring the service berry tree that Spiritual Directors International planted in 2007, after the educational events in Vancouver, British Columbia. Spiritual Directors International loves it when members visit! Especially during this 20th anniversary year, stop by and walk the Peace Path with us. We want to show you the service berry tree that SDI gave the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace with a grateful heart.
