What is the program?
In California, the Spiritual Journey is an eight-month program that supports you in your exploration of your personal spiritual life in a small group setting, deeply enriching your relationship with The Divine and recognizing the ways that God/Spirit is present and working in your life. A trained facilitator accompanies members in developing their skills in deep listening and personal discernment.
Here you can explore contemplative ways of paying attention to your life, cultivate awareness of how you respond to “The More” beckoning you to grow in self-understanding, sample varied forms of prayer and reflection, and experiment with new ways to uncover and converse about spiritual experiences.
You will be introduced to the deep and expansive practices of spiritual formation, the ancient practice of spiritual direction, and a process of discernment for the next steps in your spiritual journey.
Who is it for?
The Spiritual Journey Program is open to people of all denominations and faiths who are seeking to go deeper in their spiritual walk. We are rooted in the Christian tradition and we welcome a diverse and inclusive learning community.
