Our program consists of three courses providing a comprehensive spiritual formation experience. You'll experience the Ignatian Exercises, engage in Christian contemplative practices, participate in many different topical learning sessionals, and get instruction in the skills necessary to be an effective spiritual director.
We offer a unique two-year, part-time spiritual direction training program that blends in-person residencies with online modules, following adult learning styles of experience, reflection, and integration.
With a cohort model, you'll be part of a supportive group that stays together throughout the program. One of the program's distinctive features is the 12-14 days of silent retreat time, where you'll engage in specific themes for prayer and meet each day with a spiritual director.
This immersion in silence and guided prayer is at the heart of our training and your spiritual growth. At the end of the spiritual training program, upon completing the three courses, Knowing God and Self, Knowing the Tradition, and Knowing the Practice, graduates will earn a certificate of completion in spiritual direction from The King's University, Edmonton, Alberta.
