What’s your story?  It’s a question we are often asked in everyday conversations, and one that is of primary concern to those of us in the ministry of spiritual direction.  One of the primary reasons that people often seek out a spiritual director is they need help making meaning of their story, that is, nurturing awareness of how God is at work in their lives.

In this workshop, Dr. Diane Millis will introduce us to three different stances for mining the meaning of our life’s story, and the role that a spiritual director can play in facilitating movement from one stance to the next. 

We are the story we tell ourselves.  If we aspire to be more fully alive, we must learn to tell a more life-giving story.  During our time together, we as spiritual directors will begin by examining the story each of us is currently authoring about our lives and then prayerfully consider a more life-giving story waiting to be told.  Please join us!

The training will be from 9am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday.

Mining the Meaning of the Stories We Tell led by Diane Millis.
