Spiritual Direction Programme

“A spiritual director who intimately knows and loves Christ can help the directee to achieve that same love and intimacy” - Pope Benedict XVI.

From 8 September 2021 to June 2023

The Spiritual Direction Training Programme (Carmelite Tradition) – which has been running since September 2019 – builds on an interpretation of the experience of journeying towards intimacy with God as expressed in the life of the Carmelite saints and deriving principles from this for the growth and flourishing of the spiritual life.

The programme, therefore, has its foundation in the spirituality of the Carmelite tradition.

At the heart of this spirituality is a prayerful listening and response to the God who befriends us and an expression of this experience through a life of contemplative awareness and friendship with one another.
