Invitation to an online consultation on

supervision of spiritual directors

Spiritual direction is a sacred trust. Life-giving, ethically
responsible spiritual direction is fostered when spiritual
directors have access to supervision.

The Australian Ecumenical Council for Spiritual Direction (AECSD) invites you to an exciting and ground-breaking conversation on spiritual direction supervision, to inform the development of Formation Guidelines for Supervisors of Spiritual Directors. Whether you are a supervisor, a spiritual director receiving supervision, involved in a supervision formation program, or have another interest in this evolving area, we want to hear from you!

When: Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th August 2022

9.30am-1pm AEST each day

Facilitator: Carey McIver

Over these two days, we will review and discuss the draft initial Guidelines developed by AECSD’s Supervision Working Group. We will then hear about some of the different pathways to becoming a supervisor of spiritual directors. We also seek your feedback and ideas to inform the next phase of the Guidelines, which will identify criteria for recognition of formation pathways and programs.
