Here's how SDI's Organization Membership works:

  • Formation programs, retreats, workshops and webinars can add descriptions to the Guide so potential students can make a better choice of where they want to learn. The "enhanced" and "premium" options provide longer descriptions, photos and even videos. (See below for pricing.)
  • The easy-to-use Seek & Find Guide is already one of our most popular webpages - seen as the “go-to” place to find a spiritual director on the web. (We have more than 6,500 members in 42 countries.)
  • The SDI Guide is a one-stop resource for anyone interested in getting training in spiritual companionship or finding a retreat or a workshop or any other educational program.

Inclusion of all faiths and traditions - including no tradition at all - is central to what we do at Spiritual Directors International. We believe all people and all programs are welcome in the public square of spiritual direction. We celebrate diversity and the mutual respect that can unite us all.

So please, whether you are a formation program or you offer other spiritual education services, join us and make your listing available to the thousands of people who visit every month.

Are you available to provide spiritual direction?: You do not have to be a spiritual director to become a member and receive member benefits.

My basic information can be published: Only members who are available to offer spiritual direction can be listed in the Seek and Find Guide.

Automatic Renewal?: Sign up for automatic recurring billing to conveniently renew your membership every year. Your card will be automatically charged on your renewal date.

If it is difficult for you to afford membership dues (for example, in case of illness, unemployment, retirement with limited resources, or other crisis), please let us know that you would like to apply for a scholarship for the coming year. We value your participation in our community and want to make it possible for you to stay actively involved with SDI through your changing circumstances.

Diversity Scholarship Fund: The scholarship will pay for tuition costs for a 2-year program. It will be awarded to a student who will add to the diversity of our spiritual direction community - someone who needs financial aid to obtain this level of training in spiritual companionship.
