We are privileged to offer this online advanced training intensive for spiritual directors who desire to hold sacred space for the healing and wholeness of all people.

With a focus on healing, guiding, sustaining, and reconciling persons, spiritual care is a response to their emotional, relational, and spiritual needs. Spiritual direction is an art through which these attributes may be nurtured, held, and sustained.

This course is designed to deepen the spiritual director’s awareness and understanding through consideration of broader contexts including not only the oppression of individuals, but also oppressive systems and structures. These may include but not be limited to racism, sexism, genderism, ableism, classism, orientations to silence, approaches to the Divine, contemplative practices, and generational trauma. To hold sacred space effectively and avoid harm, it is important that spiritual directors become acutely aware of these areas of differences.

This course will include readings, reflection, and discussion using some of the case studies from the texts. Pedagogy will be contemplative to include virtual immersion opportunities, in-class practice using Zoom breakout rooms, and a writing project.

Our presenter is Reverend Ineda Pearl Adesanya, the editor and co-author of “Kaleidoscope: Broadening the Palette in the Art of Spiritual Direction.” She serves as Associate Minister of Spiritual Life for the Allen Temple Baptist Church in Oakland, CA and as President and CEO for The Interfaith Chaplaincy. Through her private practice, Rev. Adesanya provides spiritual care for faith-based institutions, clergy, and lay members of the community at large. A highly sought-after pastoral counselor and spiritual director, Rev. Adesanya is currently a Ph.D. Candidate at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA. Rev. Adesanya holds a BA in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley and worked in the land development and construction industries for twenty-five years. She is the recipient of the 2021 Luke Mowbray Award, the highest ecumenical and interfaith honor given by the American Baptist Churches USA.
