Do you want to be part of a global contemplative movement that contributes to peace, justice, and living in right relationship with all creation? Your membership supports networking opportunities, publications, educational programming, outreach, and more.

Together we are changing the world through the contemplative action of spiritual direction. Everyone is welcome to become a member of SDI. You do not need to be a spiritual director to join.

The SDI global learning community is a group of compassionate listeners who are committed to peace and justice.

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.
