About the Event
Continuing Education for Spiritual Directors
Presented by Rev. Jana Biesanz
Friday, May 20 | 9:00 am - 12 noon EDT (in person)
Join the Rev. Jana Biesanz for a morning program on working with grief and loss in spiritual direction. These past two years have been difficult for many people for a variety of reasons. In addition to a global pandemic, heightened racial tensions, political division and war; many people have continued to experience loss in their lives. Spend some time reflecting on your spiritual direction practice and gaining new skills to further your ministry. This workshop is open to staff spiritual directors as well as spiritual directors from the community and our trainees in the Horizons Program.
