Do others seek you out for guidance, a listening ear, or heartfelt conversations?
Do you notice a growing desire to help others go deeper in their spiritual lives?
These might be invitations of a call to the ministry of spiritual direction. Audire has been forming spiritual directors since its founding in 1989. The three-year program will assist you in the discerning of your call, the deepening of your spiritual life, and developing the practice of holy listening. Audire is an ecumenical program in the Christian tradition. The word “Audire” is Latin for “to listen.”
Our three-year formation program offers you:
- Monthly instructional days
- Weekend retreats
