About the Program:
Cranaleith Spiritual Center is now accepting applications for the 2021-2023 cohort of the Spiritual Direction Formation Program, set to begin in September 2021.
Drawing from the rich wellspring of the contemplative tradition and the charism of mercy, this two-year certificate program nurtures and supports those who wish to deepen their own spirituality and discern spiritual companionship with others. This process includes a particular (but not exclusive) focus on the art of spiritual accompaniment with those on the margins of society. The curriculum is presented as a hybrid of virtual lessons and onsite retreats at Cranaleith Spiritual Center in Philadelphia, PA.
While many program graduates go on to serve as spiritual directors, others apply the skills they acquire in the fields of healthcare, education, social work, church ministry and more!
