Time: Saturdays: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm ET
Wednesdays: 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm ET
Format: TOL Certificate Workshop
Audience: Clergy, mental health workers, members of the helping professions
Description: Spiritual Mentoring offers the opportunity to hold another in a space of love, compassion, and acceptance as they seek to align with their own inner Divinity. A spiritual mentor creates a space in which a mentee will be seen, heard, and guided on their spiritual journey. This profound opportunity to guide another makes the mentoring process a sacred opportunity to sit with another and experience the Divine Beloved within the mentee.
The Spiritual Mentoring Certificate Program is especially designed for those wanting to cultivate the inner presence and skills necessary for offering mentoring to those in need. This program is open to ordained clergy, seminarians in training, as well as to mental health counselors and other helping professionals who may desire to incorporate a spiritual focus into their practice. If you are interested in this program but do not find yourself in one of the above categories, please contact us to discuss your particular situation and, together, we can assess the appropriateness of this program for you.

Define and describe spiritual mentoring
Name and explain three basic skills used in spiritual mentoring
Demonstrate the use of expressive therapies and spiritual practices for mentoring
Describe how mental illness, physical illness, and marginalized identity can impact the spiritual journey
Create a vision and plan for their own spiritual mentoring practice
The class will be structured to be available in dual-mode, allowing participants to be either in-person or online via Zoom.
