Group Spiritual Direction

Group Spiritual Direction at Franciscan Spirituality CenterGroup spiritual direction is a similar experience of intentional listening and seeking God's presence, but the process is done within a group. Participants are guided by a trained spiritual director who serves as a facilitator. Some people find individual spiritual direction to be a more intimate experience and appreciate the one-to-one focus. Others enjoy the support, encouragement and collective wisdom found within a group setting.

In group spiritual direction, extroverts may appreciate the opportunity to develop their skills of listening to others at a deep, caring level. Introverts may appreciate the opportunity to share their stories in a safe and nurturing environment. Group direction also includes space for silence and reflection.

Spiritual direction groups typically are formed during summer and meet monthly from fall through spring. For more information, please call 608-791-5295.
