The Developing Direction programme is a series of one-off days, evening and short courses; covering a broad spectrum of topics, themes and practice issues related to the ministry of spiritual direction.
A day to playfully and prayerfully consider God’s invitation to play - within ourselves, in our practice as spiritual directors, and for our directees. Bring your inner child, ready to play, and in clothes that won’t mind getting a bit messy.
As spiritual directors, we must be concerned with how our work with individuals finds its place within the greater vision and gift of Christ; shalom is the centre-peace. This will be a day to explore the personal and practical dimensions of shalom; and to link this to our work as spiritual directors.
This workshop will explain how Weeks of Accompanied Prayer work, how to be a guide on such weeks and the difference accompanying on a Week and ordinary spiritual direction.
Exploring Christian Spirituality is open to people of all traditions, those of other faith groups, and any who are interested in exploring the theme of Christian Spirituality. The Course aims to: help you reflect on your own spiritual journey; learn about different ways of praying, develop your own spirituality, introduce you to the art of Spiritual Direction, help you explore how to integrate prayer and life, learn about some of the great traditions of Christian Spirituality and reflect on Bibblical themes and insights into the life of the Spirit.
The subject of his recently published book by the same title, this day will explore ‘the summons to a subterranean spiritual adventure, an odyssey of the soul’. He will call us deeper, in company with the great spiritual guides in Christian history who risked the depths, faced the darkness and made astonishing, transformative discoveries
In these evening, you will be supported and encouraged to find your voice in your parish or in other places; to promote spiritual direction and the work of the Centre.
