Attentive Companions: Spiritual Direction and the Journey with God [Online] 2022

With Sheryl Rose and Tod Twist

January 26, 2022
No one can walk our spiritual journey for us. We enter, one by one, into the presence of the mystery of God and listen wholeheartedly to what God asks of us. But that journey need not be made alone. There are times when having a companion who listens to us and who helps us to listen to ourselves sharpens our ability to listen to the voice of God. This workshop offers those new to spiritual direction a place to start and those experienced with spiritual direction insight into making the most of each session. Please note: this event will take place online via Zoom.
