Two Months Formators Programme

We are organising a two months Programme for Formators at Satyodayam, Jesuit Retreat Centre, Secunderabad. One third of the course is allotted for the personal formation of the formators so that they become internally free to accompany the formees. We have solid inputs for around ten days on different relevant topics. These inputs will not be just theoretical – they will be absorbed through the personal processing of the participants. Then we impart for around twenty days different skills that are essential for the formator. These skills will be learned by doing and intense practicing.

These are the modules we cover:

1. Formation of the Formators: Awareness, Psychosexual Integration, Understanding oneself and the candidates through Enneagram, Midlife Spirituality, Creative Thinking – training oneself to think out of the box through Lateral and 3A thinking, Deep interior Journey through Intensive Journal, Psycho-spiritual Integration.

2. Informational: Spiritual Quotient & Belief systems, Genogram, Spiritual Direction.

3. Training in Skills: Skills in Motivational Clarification, Basic Counselling Skills, Advanced Counselling Skills , Skills in Spiritual Discernment, Spiritual Direction Skills, Skills in conducting a Meeting, Skills in accessing the growth of the formee, Screening Skills.
