Sursum Corda Spiritual Directors' Formation Program
I spent last week at the first residency of this program. It was an amazing experience of being accepted in all my woundedness in a group and of experiential exploration of spirituality. I'm very much still processing it all. But one of the high points was that Saturday morning at breakfast I said to someone that I felt I was being turned into a (minor) expert and I didn't want to be one. And then the next session answered my concerns. Shaun McCarty spoke on the spiritual director as mystagogue, exploring a shared language for mystery.
I found online an article on one of the topics we explored, centering prayer, by Shaun McCarty, one of the faculty.
