We are pleased to announce that Drs. Banashak and Lundy have been invited to present an all-day "Interspirituality Institute" at the Spiritual Directors International Conference in St. Louis, MO, in April 2018.
Their program titled, "Interspiritually Present: Exploring the One Heart of Spiritual Direction" will be offered as a pre-conference institute on April 26.
In recent years, there’s been a dramatic rise of seekers who identify themselves as “interspiritual”—meaning, having direct spiritual knowledge of the Divine beyond one tradition; embracing the universality of religious experience.
What does this growing trend invite us to as spiritual directors? How can we embrace perennial wisdom, yet stay faithful to our identity, to our tradition? How do we transcend personal bias to offer pure presence to seekers of all persuasions? Exploring these questions, we will learn skills and engage in practices that have the potential to build bridges where once were impasses."
(The conference is open to members of Spiritual Directors International.)
Spiritual Directors International is a 7,000 member strong body of spiritual directors, guides, and companions who learn, grow and come together once a year to explore ways to expand our knowledge and practice of holding presence for others on their spiritual journeys. SDI is "...an inclusive, global contemplative movement that contributes to peace, justice, and living in right relationship with all creation ... changing the world through the contemplative action of spiritual direction."
