October 20 Gathering - Companioning the Addict to Spiritual Health
The next gathering of spiritual directors in Northern Virginia will be on Sunday, October 20, 2019 from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m. at Mount Olivet United Methodist Church, 1500 N Glebe Road, Arlington, VA 22207.
This session is entitled “The Experience of Consolation and Desolation in the Ignatian Tradition.” Led by Linda Winter, it will reflect on how these spiritual movements might be expressed during spiritual direction. Then she will invite the participants to break into small groups to play a game of "Snares and Ladders" to offer examples to generate discussion on how to be present with a directee who is experiencing consolation or desolation to encourage shared learning from our own experiences of these spiritual movements.
