Welcome to Module 15!
In this module, we will engage with John Mabry and his book, Starting Spiritual Direction. This module is set up to be very practical – we will answer questions such as: What is spiritual direction? How do I prepare for and what happens during a session? What doesn’t happen during a session? What will I say, and what are my expectations?
While Mabry’s book is written for seekers, it also serves as a resource for emerging spiritual guides due to its pragmatic point of view. We will dedicate time during our April residential institute to discuss this book more deeply.

Once you leave a comment or question, be sure to put a check mark in the box that says you wish to be notified of responses. When someone comments on the module, you will receive notification of their response in your e-mail inbox. We will be checking in regularly to address comments.
Please try to post module-based questions here, rather than sending us a separate e-mail. It will be easier to keep Q & A in one place, so everyone benefits. Of course, if you have a question of a more personal nature, please e-mail us.
We hope you will check in once each week to let us know how you are doing and to connect with your classmates.
Let the conversation begin! We welcome your thoughts and look forward to chatting it up with you!
Waking up this morning, I smile.
Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live in each moment
and to look at all beings with
eyes of compassion.
