Bread of Life has been preparing women and men for the ministry of spiritual direction since 1998. Many of these people are now practicing spiritual direction, leading retreats and facilitating groups. Others have used the experience and tools to enhance their work in ministry, teaching, health care, chaplaincy and other caring professions.
Bread of Life's Internship Program is founded on an integrative and holistic approach to life and experience of God. It is based in the related premises that the Mystery we call God is fully present in any and all human experience, and that our human vocation is to wake up individually and corporately to the truth and grace of that Presence.
This three-year intensive training program includes monthly Saturday gatherings and periodic weekend retreats that:
- focus on the spiritual formation of the candidate
- in a context of depth community
- while building core competencies in the ministry of spiritual direction
