A Program Recognised by the AECSD

(Australian Ecumenical Council for Spiritual Direction)


This formation program is made up of both theoretical and practical studies conducted in a contemplative learning environment using the contemplative/evocative model of spiritual direction. This model aims to integrate a contemplative stance in the student and the adoption of a contemplative stance towards their directees.  It is evocative because its underlying philosophy is to evoke personal and spiritual growth in the student which will flow on to their directees.

Delivery Structure

The course is delivered over four years of part time study made up of 250 contact hours of outcome based contemplative learning and 72 hours of Spiritual Direction Practicum comprising group/peer and individual supervision. Read more
