EMBRACING THE HOLY
TRAINING PROGRAM APPLICATION
EMBRACING THE HOLY
SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR TRAINING PROGRAM
Embracing the Holy is a training program for individuals who wish to explore their spirituality and discern if they are called to become a spiritual director. The program is now offered via distance learning and, for Portland, OR locals, through onsite participation at the Urban Spirituality Center.
ONSITE PROGRAM OFFERS BOTH A DAY AND NIGHT SCHEDULE.
Onsite Program Day Class
September through September; 1st Tuesday of each month; 9:30 am to noon
18 classes: 10 classes conducted in the classroom, 8 classes conducted independently
Embracing the Holy will help you explore and value your own spirituality through training exercises, interpersonal experiences, lectures, reflection, and creative expression. The gifts of listening, being present, and creating a safe space are the primary tools for the spiritual journey.
Once these are in place, you will learn about the history and types of spirituality and about the journeys of others. You will explore practices that will help you embrace the holy in your daily life. You will review your own story and, through a deep connection to your heart, soul, mind and body, your work in the world and the universe. And you will learn to help others on their journey.
Lectures are facilitated by Peg Edera and James Galluzzo. Some of the 18 topics include the following:
September through June; 2nd Tuesday of each month; 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Content is the same as the day class described above.
