Introduction to Spiritual Direction (SPIR588)
Online: April 13 – June 19 | On-site: April 27 – 30, 8:30am – 4:30pm
Instructor: John Kiemele, PhD
Spiritual Direction is the simple gift of offering to another person the gentle but tenacious encouragement to open oneself fully to God’s loving presence and to co-discern God’s action in every aspect of life. In receiving spiritual direction, we learn to open our hearts more deeply in trust and surrender. In offering spiritual direction, we experience the transforming intersection of the Divine and human stories among the ordinary. Spiritual direction provides a safe and yet stretching context where our story is honoured as the raw material in which we learn to discern and receive God’s drawing actions into the intimacy of loving union with God. Through spiritual direction we also learn to follow the Spirit’s guidance as we discover how to integrate and express God’s present love in our everyday choices.
This course is designed to give the student an overview of the gift of spiritual direction in the church. It will broaden the student’s understanding, challenge the student to surrender to God’s direction as the primary Reality, open the student to the experience of the soul journey, and expose the student to a particular process of accompanying another on this journey. Emphasis will be placed on providing a theological and historical context for this ministry, understanding the scope of spiritual direction, inviting students to observe and begin to practice some basic skills of spiritual direction, and relating this gift to ministry within the body of Christ.
