The Gifts and Challenges of Diversity

Some implications for spiritual direction

with Grace Owen and Mirjam Ngoy-Verhage

What are the potential implications of diversity for directors and directees? Join us to explore this important topic as we reflect on personal stories and experiences of diversity.
