Guided Directed Retreat Practicum for Spiritual Directors

The Guided Directed Retreats Practicum is for experienced spiritual directors who feel a call to journey with directees in a silent retreat setting. We will explore the dynamics of daily prayer on retreat; understand the unique rhythm and movement of silent retreats; use the insights of Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, and David Benner to help us be ready and available to retreatants; and look at the uniqueness of offering spiritual direction in a retreat environment. Spiritual Directors will receive direct experience as they will be given opportunities to provide spiritual direction within the Journey Into Silence retreats.
