This 11-week practicum provides participants with fundamental skills in ongoing spiritual direction and directing 3 to 8-day retreats. There are four components: an individual directed 8-day retreat, the Spiritual Directors’ Workshop, a seminar developing themes in Spiritual Direction and associated areas, and the opportunity to direct on three 8-day retreats with daily supervision, dependent upon suitability and readiness of each participant, as determined by Loyola House staff.
Applicants must have made the full Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius under personal direction, either in the 30-day format or the Exercises in Daily Life.
