WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
Spiritual companions and seekers over 73 – You want to help grow the global movement of spiritual direction. You’re willing to share your own contemplative and companioning experience. You welcome the fresh insights of those who follow in your footsteps.
Spiritual companions and seekers 53-73 – Grounded in a calling, or searching for truth anew, some call you a “Baby Boomer.” But that’s just a label. In fact, in spiritual terms, you are only blossoming. Your curiosity is a tiger. You yearn to learn from diverse perspectives.
Spiritual companions and seekers 6 months – 53 You long to be connected to (and honor) the truth of those who have gone before. You seek change within so that you may spark and support change without. You are learning that purpose, resilience, joy and community all rely on discernment, that deep listening is the foundation of true community.
