Spiritual Director's On-Going Formation

 “Sacred Fire”

(A Vision for a Deeper Human and Christian Maturity)

Our focus will be initially on defining a vision of Discipleship, followed by the challenges to enter the struggle as we move into what is Mature Discipleship. As we explore the deeper invitation to the letting go as we enter mature discipleship we will be stretched even further in what is Radical Discipleship. The reference we will use to prepare for each session is given to us by Ronald Rolheiser. For those who register for this on-going program for spiritual directors the book will be provided.

Professional Day for Spiritual Directors

“The Awakened Heart”

(Gift and Challenge)

What is an awakened heart? 

An awakened heart learns how to 

appreciate “gentle seeing, soft acknowledgment, and reverent perception.” 

An awakened heart values “being awed by a night sky, or touched by a symphony.” 

An awakened heart feels “someone’s suffering, being shocked by loss or disaster without comprehending the reason.” (Gerald May) 

During our time together we will share and discover the underlying gift and challenge of the awakened heart. 

Knowing our awakened heart moves the spiritual director to see, feel and assist the directee along their way to deeper understanding.
