Developing

Spirituality is how we channel our desires and shape our actions, it is what gives us the energy and moves us into the world in a way that is meaningful and authentic. Spirituality animates, sustains and gives purpose and direction to the longing to be connected to ourselves, to others, to the earth, to God however s/he is understood.

“The true miracle is not walking on water or walking in air, but simply walking on this earth.” Thich Nhat Hanh

The Centre hosts Encounter (The London Course) and The Art of Spiritual Direction Ignatian Spirituality Course both of which form and train people in the art and ministry of spiritual direction.

The very popular Developing Direction series offers practising directors the opportunity for continuing development.

We offer monthly Supervision Groups and Individual Supervision for practising directors, and Training in Supervision Skills.
