My experience in the Studion School for Spiritual Direction was profound, life-giving, and life changing. I loved every moment. As a result of my time there, I am working as a Spiritual Director and retreat director both in-person and online. The experience opened the door to a new way of living and working. I encourage anyone seeking a closer relationship with God, deeper faith, and a more mature understanding of Christian spirituality to engage in this program.

Experience a spiritual journey like no other. Our Christian spiritual training program is designed to be transformative as well as enjoyable. We foster a supportive and engaging community where you can share your stories, listen to others, and build relationships that will last a lifetime.
With six silent, directed retreats following the themes of the Ignatian Exercises, you will experience times that are deeply sacred, meeting God in exactly the ways that you need. Above all, following Jesus in the gospels, you will grow in your capacity to love and be loved.
The combination of contemplative retreats, learning, and community---these nourished, expanded and brought healing to my soul. The Studion taught me new languages that opened my world, such as appreciating the sacredness of holding each other’s stories, the beauty of silence, spiritual exercises and so much more. My relationship with God and others deepened and I have decided to be a spiritual director because of this journey.
