Spiritual Direction Training in Canterbury
Comment Email Print

The Franciscan International Study Centre in Canterbury is now accepting applications for their Ecumenical Training Programme in Spiritual Direction. This part-time programme begins in October 2016 and finishes in June 2017 and comprises one weekend each term plus one Saturday each month during term time.

Franciscan Spiritual Direction is rooted in the spirituality of the Franciscan tradition. At its heart is the desire to see God in all of life, especially through God's creation, shown in nature and in one another. This Programme focuses on walking with others as they seek God in their life. There is no set process for this, no single route, but an openness to the Holy Spirit who speaks to each one of us as we seek to listen.

You do not need to be a Franciscan or even have any great knowledge of Franciscan spirituality to be part of the Programme. All that is necessary is to have a heartfelt desire to seek God in your own life and to walk with others as they journey through life.
