School of Discernment

School of Discernment 2022

Friday, November 11 at 1:00PM - Sunday, November 13 at 1:00PM
with Kathleen Cahalan and members of the Benedictine Center Spiritual Direction Team

The School of Discernment is an opportunity to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit under the guidance of skilled teachers and listeners and with the benefit of wisdom from the monastic tradition—now offered in hybrid format, both in-person and online simultaneously. The framework includes a daily rhythm of prayer with the monastic community, sessions on the practice of discernment, reflection questions for quiet time, and one-on-one meetings. No one will be obligated to share publicly about the particulars of their own stories, but each will have the opportunity to do so as they choose. Spiritual directors will be available to assist with the process of discernment and any questions and insights as they arise. This event will take place in real time in hybrid format, both in-person and via Zoom.




Single in-person – $250.00
Online via Zoom – $100.00

In-person costs are per person and include meals. If you will be arriving early for lunch (12:00PM), please select "Friday Lunch" from the Optional Items during registration.
