Spirituality Retreats

SFTS offers a series of retreats designed to deepen the spiritual practice of individuals restless and wandering; fatigued by work on the front lines of ministry, care, or activism; or experienced directors and new inquirers seeking opportunities to explore practices, communities, and ways of thinking that enrich their life and vocation.

These retreats nurture spiritual formation and deepen capacities to engage the world with compassion and justice. These retreats can be taken individually or build toward a certificate or diploma. In addition to contemplative listening and foundations of spiritual direction, retreat topics can include:

  • Wilderness spirituality
  • Practices of discernment
  • Buddhist-Christian compassion practices
  • Spiritual practice and social justice
  • Lives of women mystics

These retreats may be taken in conjunction with a Certificate in the Art of Spiritual Direction or a Diploma in the Art of Spiritual Direction.
