We have two spiritual direction groups - one for women and one for men beginning this spring.

 
Tending our Souls in Community
A Spiritual Direction Group for Women
 
 

Are you looking for a way to deepen your spiritual life in a small dedicated community? If so, we invite you to consider joining with 5-7 people for a nine-month spiritual direction group.

When: Third Tuesdays of the month beginning in March 
Where: Bread of Life, 1260 Fulton Avenue, Suite A, Sacramento CA
Time: 6:30 to 8:30 PM  
Cost: $40 - $75/session paid quarterly in advance (sliding scale; no one will be turned away if costs are an issue)

Interested? Please contact office@breadoflife.org or call (916) 648-1803. We will connect you with our facilitator to arrange a phone interview that includes the following questions with an exploration of the planned format and how it might or might not fit your stated interest at this time:

  • What draws you to this work and this group at this time?
  • What ways are you already engaged in actively tending your own soul? What’s life-giving about that? What ‘more’ do you seek?
  • Are you able to commit to a monthly meeting for nine months? (We will likely skip August, depending on the group consensus).

Facilitator: Carol Abbott is a spiritual director with Bread of Life, and a member of the faculty for Bread of Life’s spiritual formation program called Listen to Your Life. Carol was trained in the art of spiritual direction at Bread of Life, and is a retired educator.

 
Spiritual Unfolding for Men
Tending the Male Soul 
 
 

Are you looking for a way to deepen your spiritual life among a small, dedicated group of men? If so, you are invited to join with 4-6 men as companions along a shared path—intentionally tending to spiritual unfolding in men.

When: First Thursday of the month beginning in April 2017
Where: Bread of Life, 1260 Fulton Avenue, Suite A, Sacramento CA
Time: 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
Cost: $40/session (a sliding scale is available)

If interested, please contact office@breadoflife.org or call (916) 648-1803. We will connect you with our facilitator to arrange a phone interview to discuss the planned format, whether it would be a good “fit” for you, and if you would be able to commit to a monthly meeting for at least six months.

Please be thinking about what draws you to meeting with other men in a safe, confidential small group.

Facilitator: Lew Robinson is a spiritual director with Bread of Life and Franciscan Living. He was trained in the art of spiritual direction at Bread of Life and is a semi-retired university professor
