Spiritual Directors International

The Home of Spiritual Companionship


Saturday, 3 June
1:00–5:00 p.m.

We will begin our day by listening to leaders from several major spiritual backgrounds. Each presenter will offer the lens through which their spiritual formation instructs and guides them to be inviting and welcoming of strangers. Speakers include Rabbi Ted Falcon, Imam Jamal Rahman, Genjo Marinello, Anil Singh-Molares, Yogacharya Ellen O’Brian, Maria Barrera, and Miriam Frey.

Following the presentations, we will break into small groups facilitated by spiritual companions to discuss what the obstacles and challenges around welcoming a stranger can look and feel like, what it might take to step beyond our fears and out of our comfort zones, and which practical tools we might be able to employ to reach.

Lastly, we will end our time sharing with each other across common themes and approaches that may be emerging. Our hope is to build connections in the community and begin to answer the question of what is our call to action?

RSVP to and join the conversation!
