There are three regional groups at present in Florida: Orlando Area, Tampa Bay and First Coast. We call these groups “Spiritual Directors, Companions & Friends;” they are affiliated not only with Audire, but also with Spiritual Directors International (SDI), as SDI Community Groups. The groups are made up of Audire graduates as well as spiritual directors who have graduated from other spiritual direction formation programs, and others whose vocations or avocations are centered on deep listening, such as therapists, social workers, chaplains, clergy…you get the picture.
The three groups meet quarterly. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the groups have shifted from meeting in-person to meeting via Zoom. This practice may change at some point in 2023. Check this page for updates. You may wish to mark your calendar now for the dates you see below.
The next meeting of the Orlando Area group will be Saturday, April 22, 2023. The remaining dates in 2023 for this group will be July 15 and October 28. This group meets from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
The next meeting of the Tampa Bay group will be Saturday, April 1, 2023. The remaining dates in 2023 will be June 10 and October 7. This group meets from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The next meeting of the First Coast group will be a Saturday in April 2023, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Check back here for the date to be announced.
