This conference and retreat is designed for those who are currently engaged in or offering group spiritual direction and want to enhance their practice as facilitators or participants.

Sessions will be live with the staff present. The first part of our time each day will be in the full group with presentations from the staff and some experiential exercises. The second part will be in small listening groups with a designated staff person that will follow the group spiritual direction process that we teach. All of this will be woven in prayer!

The conference and retreat provides intentional opportunity to

  • Experience group spiritual direction each day;
  • Fine tune the foundation of this practice through reviewing key elements and addressing questions and concerns;
  • Learn about and share the variety of ways that people are using group spiritual direction.


The core leaders of this workshop have each practiced and facilitated Group Spiritual Direction for many years and enjoy sharing it with others!
