An accessible (virtual) 2-year program with companions in ministry that prepares you to be a certified spiritual director in multiple contexts

The application for Fall 2022 has been closed. We look forward to accepting applications for Fall 2023 next spring!

The Spiritual Direction Formation & Certification equips and forms lay leaders, ordained clergy, and spiritual seekers toward the orientations and skills necessary to be compassionate, creative, and certified spiritual directors. Liberation is the heart of Spiritual Direction and is realized through deep, radical listening practices that reconnect and remember people to their authentic selves and the God of their understanding.

Under the direction of Rev. Tandi Rogers, learners will participate in a program of formation, learn and apply skills, work directly with spiritual direction clients through a practicum, and prepare to launch their spiritual direction ministries. Learners gather virtually every other week for 2-hour sessions of deep listening, spiritual practices, and instruction and engage asynchronously in study and reflection in alternating weeks. Terms are 17 weeks long and meet in Fall (mid-August – December) and Spring (January – May) for two years.
