AT330-Contemplative Supervision for Spiritual Direction Ministry
AT 330-CONTEMPLATIVE SUPERVISION FOR INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP SPIRITUAL DIRECTION
This course draws upon the rich resources of Christian contemplative tradition to enhance and deepen the spiritual lives of those called to ministries of spiritual direction and spiritual guidance. As with other supervision courses, the focus is on supervised ministry: Activities include peer review of presentations, peer assessments of strengths and growth areas, and an individual supervision meeting with the instructor. Special attention is given, furthermore, to the spiritual director’s interior life and spiritual practice as a key aspect of spiritual direction ministry. Students will be asked to do pre-course reading and, after the conclusion of class sessions, to write a final paper.
Pre- or co-requisite: AT 300/500, AT 305/505, AT 310/510, or permission by the Director of the Center for Christian Spirituality. The course is open to outside spiritual directions, but is not open to auditors. Enrollment limit is 6, and the course can be taken more than once.
