The Spirituality Network supports a contemplative approach to the spiritual life.
As individuals grapple with spiritual questions, the Spirituality Network offers a safe, nonjudgmental, ecumenical space in which to voice them and collaboratively create new ways of being spiritual. Spiritual direction plays an important part in helping people claim the authority of their inner experience and reconcile it with the experience of religious authority. In training spiritual directors through Wellstreams and connecting seekers with spiritual directors through referrals, the Network helps build and strengthen the corps of companions for the journey. As its mission and logo attest, the Network can serve as a bridge over troubled waters to the living water for which many thirst.
The Spirituality Network can
- Help you find a spiritual director
- Prepare you to become a spiritual director
- Assist you in learning contemplative practices and deepening your spiritual development
- Offer opportunities to refresh your spirit on retreat
- Connect you to a community of companions for the journey
Application for the next class of Wellstreams is now open. Completed applications are due no later than June 1, 2018. More information >
Receive Spiritual Direction for One Year at No Cost
The Wellstreams Training Program in the Art of Spiritual Direction is seeking individuals to work with our intern spiritual directors for one year beginning January 2018. This is an ideal opportunity for those who have never been in spiritual direction—or have limited experience with it—and are ready to see if this might be helpful to their spirituality and faith.
The intern directors are in the final phase of their training and are supervised by experienced spiritual director supervisors. Anyone interested in participating would need to be willing to commit to monthly sessions with an intern spiritual director beginning in January 2018, ending in January 2019. There is no charge for this service.
