Our Upcoming Events
Dates: Wednesdays, Apr 21, 2021 & Apr 28, 2021
We are excited to have Brother Don Bisson join us to provide a training on supervision. This workshop is appropriate for people who want to become supervisors (along with five+ years of experience in spiritual direction), supervisors who want to deepen their skills, and spiritual directors who want to know how better to prepare themselves for supervision sessions.
Here is Don’s description of the workshop:
“Spiritual directors have an ethical duty to regularly participate in one-to-one or group supervision. Supervision is a ministry of support for both director and directee.
These two morning sessions are an ongoing formation experience for those called to the ministry of supervision. From a Jungian- Christian perspective the program will propose ways of dealing with unconscious shadow projections which will disturb the direction relationship. In service to the freedom of the director, different models of supervision will be proposed with confidential case material.”
Brother Don Bisson, FMS is, first and foremost, a spiritual director and is widely respected as a specialist in the training, formation and supervision of spiritual directors.
A Marist brother based in Esopus, New York, he has graduate degrees in liturgy, spirituality, and transpersonal psychology, and earned his Doctor of Ministry at the Pacific School of Religion specializing in Spiritual Direction and Jungian Psychology. With more than 90 live audio recordings available, Brother Bisson is internationally recognized for his lectures, workshops, and retreats on the interrelationship of Christian spirituality and Jungian psychology.
Both days will be facilitated by Brother Don in the morning, 9:00am-12:00noon (CST), with optional afternoon practice sessions and discussion facilitated by Kalyn Falk, 2:00pm-4:00pm (CST)
Don has asked that participants read "Supervision Of Spiritual Directors: Engaging In Holy Mystery" Edited by Rebecca Bradburn Langer and Mary Rose Bumpus" before the workshop which is available for purchase in our resource section.
