Opportunities and Support for Trained Spiritual Directors

HeartPaths DFW is offering two programs for spiritual directors in the DFW Area, both beginning in September.

Sustain Your Prayer
Come Sustain your Prayer in a circle of people who feel at home in a variety of styles of contemplative prayer.  Sustain offers ongoing formation in contemplative prayer, gathering twice monthly for 90 min. of group prayer experiences. Also includes 4 morning seminars on Saturdays spread throughout the year.  Late-September until May. 

​Peer Supervision Groups
​​Supervision is provided to encourage the upholding of the SDI ethics for spiritual directors which include receiving regular supervision for our ministry of spiritual direction.  Peer groups of eight (8) participants will be led by a trained and experienced supervisor.

Networking Events

From time to time SMI hosts informal events intended most of all to bring DFW area spiritual directors together.  These events usually feature a speaker, but the format is designed to be relaxed, collegial, and interactive. Our objective is to provide nourishment for the ministry by sharing information while building community.  Such gatherings also support the development of a personal referral network.  Check our website from time to time for news of an upcoming networking event!
