This course is for anyone curious about developing self-compassion and the capacity to be open-hearted. Drawing on both the wisdom of spiritual traditions and contemporary research, you will learn through mindfulness and meditation practice that compassion is both self-serving and other-serving.
Guidance on the Spiritual Journey
Group Spiritual Direction
This course creates a space where participants can dream, explore, and discern a path toward personal wholeness and deeper intimacy with God. It offers an opportunity to reflect on just about anything that occurs in life – work, health, play, relationships, personal struggles -- asking the central question: how is God moving and calling us into deeper intimacy? Participants learn how to listen contemplatively, discern the movement of the Spirit, and find courage to respond appropriately. The community experience, facilitated by a trained spiritual director, allows for processing knowledge and experience in a safe and non-threatening manner. Each session includes meditation, instruction in aspects of the spiritual journey, and group dialogue in an interactive forum.
