Spiritual Direction: Foundations
Spiritual Direction: Foundations (formerly Spiritual Guidance Seminar) is the first level of our supervised program for those who want to become spiritual directors or to make spiritual direction a part of their ministry. It’s offered each year, alternating between an on-campus format one year and a hybrid format the following year (in which instruction takes place both online and on-campus).
The format for 2021-2022 is as follows. In the first semester (August 2-December 10, 2021), this class will be in a hybrid format, which starts with online work on August 2. We will then meet on the AMBS campus (or via Zoom) from Monday, August 16 (starting at 1:30), and on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday that week from 8:30-4:30, with 3 breaks each day, i.e., August 16-20. The rest of the semester's work will happen online.
In the second semester (January 11-April 29, 2022), everyone will meet by Zoom on Thursdays, 1:30-4:30, with other work done more or less at a student's convenience during the rest of the week.
