Education and Certification in Interfaith & Interspiritual Direction
Welcome to The Spiritual Guidance Training Institute
A leading edge organization engaging in education, experiences, and relationships for practical, integrative, unitive living. We specialize in the art and training of spiritual guides (directors), offering a professional certificate which encompasses skills in both interfaith and interspiritual guidance.
Sourced in the Perennial Tradition, we believe that while there are many spiritual paths, a universal commonality underlies them all. It is our goal at the Spiritual Guidance Training Institute to provide education and opportunities for deepening this understanding so our participants and graduates can kindly companion and offer compassionate, insightful presence to people from all walks of life and spiritual inclinations.
"I am thrilled to be a part of this training program. Our leaders, Drs. Banashak and Lundy, are amazing and I feel they have carefully crafted a unique and enriching program that is ripe with possibility for me personally and as a future spiritual guide." B. B., California
