New Contemplatives

& SDI Fellows

 

We are delighted to announce our latest cohort of New Contemplatives - as well as a new group of seasoned spiritual companions we are calling "SDI Fellows." (More on our Fellows below.)

We see the New Contemplatives as future leaders in spiritual companionship - people who can help us grow our global movement. We congratulate them and welcome them to our community.

The New Contemplatives Initiative seeks to encourage, understand and engage with spiritual directors in the first half of their lives (aged 40-ish or under) by offering a container for vocational support and development. Each New Contemplative will receive full tuition for the 2020 SDI conference as well as hotel accommodation and a travel stipend. With our conference theme of "Spiritual Companionship for Our Times," these New Contemplatives will play a key role in helping SDI create a truly inter-generational community.

SDI Fellows 2020

This program is new and bursting with potential. Each year, we will recognize fellows who are experienced, mature spiritual companions - contemplatives who are inspired to grow SDI's global movement. This year we are honoring four companions of distinction. They are committed to helping us achieve our objectives of greater depth, breadth and diversity of members and offerings through mutually beneficial partnerships. Functioning as ambassadors of sorts, SDI Fellows forge and strengthen relationships between SDI, themselves, and institutions and organizations with whom they have a meaningful relationship. Welcome, SDI Fellows. We are grateful to have you with us. And we are overjoyed that you will be joining us for the SDI Conference in Santa Fe. Click here to learn more.
