Perhaps you’re wondering – just what is an SDI Community?
It’s an SDI-sponsored, locally-run group of spiritual companions. These people gather either regionally, or based on a shared commonality, on a regular basis to connect, support one another, network, share contemplative time and practice new skills in spiritual care. An SDI Community can operate anywhere in the world.
Let us know if you’d be interested in joining an SDI Community and we will connect you. You can email our Communities Coordinator, Larry J Morris III, here: [email protected]
