The spiritual direction internship is a unique, two-year, learning and discernment program using resources from a wide variety of religious traditions. Beginning in the fall of even numbered years, classes meet weekly on Wednesday evenings for three hours from September to May. The primary learning is experiential and comes through didactic sessions, an interfaith website with links to many traditions, receiving and offering spiritual direction and individual and peer supervision. This learning is supplemented by reflection papers, and an annual overnight retreat.
The focus and content of the Internship program follows the guidelines for training in spiritual direction established by Spiritual Directors International. As the program progresses, the intern, with the help of the Leadership Team, assesses and discerns the intern’s call to the ministry of spiritual direction. Those who discernment does not lead to a call to the ministry of spiritual direction will have developed gifts and skills that will be helpful to their work in other settings and ministries.
