Spiritual Guidance Training Program
"Before I applied to the SGTP, my discernment process bounced from fear around the tuition cost to awe around the movement of the Holy Spirit calling me into this program at Siena. After completing the SGTP, I say with every fiber of my being that it is so worth the investment of money and time, openness and vulnerability. Many graces and transformations have been gifted me through SGTP."
"The Spiritual Guidance Training Program became an unanticipated journey of transformational healing and hope. It is this hope that I now live from, through, with and into a future that is of possibility."
Institute for Spiritual Guidance
Siena Retreat Center is pleased to announce the Institute for Spiritual Guidance. The Institute for Spiritual Guidance is intended for both seasoned spiritual guides and those who have more recently completed training.
In response to the need for ongoing development of spiritual guides, the Institute will offer workshops that create opportunities for guides to learn and further integrate the art and skill of companioning another person.
The next Institute will be August 6-8, 2017. The topic is "Beneath the Surface: A Practicum Intensive and the Role of Supervision." The focus of the 2017 Institute will be a practicum intensive and the role of supervision. Practicum sessions develop and hone skills in companioning seekers. Supervision “explores what is beneath the surface” of the spiritual guide—unexamined patterns, reactions, or assumptions—to better understand oneself and to better accompany seekers.
