The Studion School for Spiritual Direction is dedicated to training and supporting individuals who seek spiritual growth and desire to become spiritual directors. Our flexible and affordable program is designed to equip our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to guide others on their spiritual journey. With over 80 years of combined ministry experience, our facilitation team offers a wealth of wisdom and practical guidance in Christian spiritual direction. Our program consists of three courses that cover a range of topics and skills, including Knowing God and Self, Knowing the Tradition, and Knowing the Practice. Our unique approach focuses on experiential learning, including silent retreats, practicum, supervision, and practice sessions.
The Studion launched its first cohort in January 2016. Since then, we have been committed to helping individuals deepen their spiritual growth and become effective spiritual directors. We are a trans-denominational school and serve learners from a wide range of Christian backgrounds. Over the years, we have welcomed participants from Catholic, Anglican, Reformed, Baptist, Presbyterian, Alliance, and Non-denominational backgrounds.
The Studion is proud to be affiliated with The King's University, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, under their certificate program and with Star of the North Retreat Centre in St. Albert, Alberta, where all of the in-person modules take place. These affiliations allow us to offer a comprehensive and enriching learning experience to our students, ensuring that they receive the best training possible.
