SPIRITUAL DIRECTION COURSE, April 2020

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION COURSE, April 2020

(For Spiritual Directors, Formators, Retreat Preachers and Pastors)

 

Every Diocese, Congregation, Seminary, Formation House, Spiritual Centre and Parish needs people who can accompany its members spiritually. Today Spiritual Direction (Accompaniment) is a specialized field looking at Spirituality in a broader and deeper level. It calls for a greater sensitivity on the part of the Spiritual Director to the Spirit moving the Directee from within. Spiritual Accompaniment goes much beyond advice giving with ‘dos’ and don’ts’.

This course will be very useful to Formators, Retreat Preachers and Parish Priests too as their ministry involves spiritual direction.

Quite often the issues brought in the spiritual direction are psychological with an underlining Spirituality in the psychological process that each one goes through. The process of spiritual accompaniment becomes a psycho-spiritual process. Therefore the Director will need some basic understanding of the psychological and spiritual processes and their interlinking. Today more and more Women Religious Congregations are preparing their own personnel for Spiritual Direction and Retreat Direction. This Course is planned to meet these needs too.

The participants will learn by becoming aware of their own inner process. The course is practical with sufficient, appropriate and relevant inputs by seven persons with expertise in their topics and with sound spiritual and psychological backgrounds and with a lot of experience in guiding individuals in their spiritual journey. The participants will pick up basic and advanced spiritual and counselling skills by plenty of practices till the skills become their second nature. The course moves from psychological to psycho-spiritual and to the spiritual aspects of life.

You are welcome to participate, benefit and become more fruitful. Please inform and encourage Priests, Brothers and Sisters whom you think may find the course useful in equipping themselves better in their spiritual ministry.

SPIRITUALITY BEYOND RELIGIONS AND TRADITIONAL SPIRITUAL PRACTICES

In Childhood, all religions lead us to God through the Sacred Scriptures, Belief systems and Spiritual Practices. This stage goes on for some years even up to middle life. A time comes when the beliefs we held so strongly become meaningless leaving us in a vacuum. The Traditional Practices with which we had been nourishing ourselves spiritually fall off even without our awareness. We feel confused, helpless and sometimes feel guilty, fearful, empty and even depressed…..  . We are badly misunderstood even by our close and dear ones at this stage. We are not able to go back to our traditional beliefs or practices. If we do go back, they become a dead weight in our Spiritual Journey. We reach a critical moment – a moment when we need to move beyond (not against) religion and its teachings. The path will be a lonely one as no one can travel along with us. This is a time of personal search which needs a lot of inner courage.

All religions and their teachings including the Sacred Scriptures are pointers to God. They cannot limit and contain God. God is beyond!  No wonder, the inner spirit in all of us longs and needs to go beyond!

This Course is meant for those who are going through the above inner movements. It is meant for those who are in search. This Course will not show the path but will facilitate the path each one is moving in. The participants will be facilitated to share their spiritual journey in a confidential setting. The personal journey shared will be a great source of encouragement for all in our own journey.

You are most Welcome!
