Supervisor Training Program

Through the paradigm of the Universe Story, we will explore how creation’s gifts of interiority, diversity, and communion are intricately woven within every story shared. Together, program participants will develop necessary skills, become more aware of their own gifts, and work on their growing edges as trained supervisors. Through input, reflection, exercises, and supervised practicum they will grow in spiritual insight and the art and skill of supervision.

Program Elements:

  • Opening gathering at Siena Retreat Center: August 9-11, 2024
  • Practicum experience throughout the year
    • Accompanying two spiritual guides as their supervisor
