This is a certificate program with experiential training in offering direction for directed retreats. The intern directors will provide daily spiritual direction of 45-60 minutes each day for 1–2 retreatants. Daily individual and peer group supervision provides a combination of discernment, instruction, and reflection on the movements within the intern.

The ideal candidate will have spiritual direction practice of 3+ years with 2 or more directees, and will have made at least two silent directed retreats as a retreatant. Those who do not meet these criteria will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

In addition to 1–2 directees, we provide:

  • Daily individual supervision of 45–60 minutes
  • Daily peer group supervision 90–120 minutes
  • Certificate of completion with written evaluation
