The Art of Spiritual Guidance (2 year program)
With Thomas Atum O'Kane, PhD
August 23 - 28, 2019
Spiritual Guidance is an art, a gift and a calling that has been long practiced in contemplative traditions to support spiritual development and personal transformation. The practice encourages the soul’s quest for expression, authenticity and greater intimacy with the Divine within oneself, one’s relationships, and the world.
Develop skills for serving as a spiritual guide to others while deepening your own spiritual foundation. This in-depth two year training program takes an interfaith approach and incorporates the insights of transpersonal psychology with special emphasis on Jungian psychology.
Themes addressed in the curriculum:
- The Call
- The Teacher Within and Without
- Creating a Personal Mythology
- States and Stages in the Journey
- Typology and Guidance
- Contemplation, Meditation and Prayer
- Deep Structure of Ritual
- The Retreat Process
- The God Ideal and Image
This is a gathering place for those who have experienced considerable inner work, and who value sharing the journey of the soul within a community of other mature seekers.
