SDI is offering a rare opportunity to get training with Lucy Abbott Tucker for less than 1/10th of the price of her normal residential workshop. Lucy is one of the best teachers of spiritual direction supervision in the world. She usually does 5-day residential workshops. Now, with the publication of her new book Spiritual Direction Supervision – Principles, Practices & Storytelling, SDI wants to make her teaching more widely accessible.
This 4-part introduction to spiritual direction supervision will touch on all the key themes that make supervision an essential part of the training and on-going professional development of any spiritual companion. We call it “A Taste of Spiritual Direction Supervision” and we hope you will consider joining us.

WHAT: 4 live “learn-by-doing” digital sessions – 90 minutes each
WHY: To give spiritual companions an affordable intro to this essential part of companionship
HOW: Practical teaching offered with a sense of humility and humor

Session 1 – Why?
Why is it important for you to talk in supervision? Lucy will guide participants so they can explore their own answers to this key question.
Session 2 – What?
What is your own definition of spiritual direction supervision? Given that definition, what did you intend to do in any spiritual direction session? Did you go off track? These questions bulwark more experiential learning.
Session 3 – Who?
Who needed the “what” that you chose to do as a spiritual companion? Lucy will use open-ended questions to help even practiced deep listeners towards self-discovery.
Session 4 – How?
Lucy will show you how to use principles, practices and storytelling to move forward in both spiritual direction and supervision.
