SDI Webinar: Reimagining Supervision

30 November 2016

Supervision is an ethical imperative for spiritual directors. At its best, it is also a compassionate, contemplative practice that brings freedom to spiritual directors and, by extension, spiritual directees as well. In this webinar we will discuss supervision as a grounded, safe, compassionate relationship between peers, one designed to provide new ways forward for both spiritual directors and spiritual directees.

This webinar frames supervision as a process we engage in to better serve our spiritual directees. It focuses supervision on the inner experience of a spiritual director in relationship to the spiritual directee and discusses the role of teaching and consultation in supervision. Further, we will explore various supervision formats and highlight reasonable ways for those with only a few spiritual directees to make use of supervision.
