Sustainable Faith Year One Training in Spiritual Direction (SOSD) is now available On-Line! But Seats are VERY LIMITED! Don’t Delay!
Without a doubt, COVID-19 has affected all of our lives in dramatic ways. Like every other school or learning institution across the country, we here at Sustainable Faith, have had to adjust our in-person gatherings as we finished up our 2019-2020 school year. Moving our in-person cohorts to on-line experiences has been quite a shift for all of us, teachers and students alike, but just as it is with so many challenges in life, with great adversity and change comes new opportunity as well.
So this fall (the 2020-21 school year) with the uncertainties of COVID-19 still around us, the Board of Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction has decided to release some of our teachers to oversee Year One training opportunities designed exclusively for on-line students, and Sandy & I are inviting you to be part of this exciting new opportunity.
Our curriculum and class goals will still be the same. You will still receive the high-quality training in spiritual direction you’ve come to expect from Sustainable Faith. But rather than meeting face-to-face for our five weekend cohorts, we will be meeting together via Zoom.
Know that we’ve been working diligently here at Sustainable Faith to re-work our curriculum and the way we teach it so that you, the on-line student, will still receive the quality education, practical experience, and personal attention you’ve come to expect from Sustainable Faith, now the largest training school in spiritual direction across North America. Click here for an overview of our Year One coursework and costs.
The two key advantages to this on-line learning experience:
- With the uncertainties of COVID-19 throughout the 2020-21 school year, you know you will have a safe and consistent learning environment that you can control.
- In the past, Sustainable Faith trainers have only been able to come to cities where there was a minimum of six to eight people wanting to be trained. Now, with our on-line training, as long as you have access to fast & reliable internet service, you can join one of our cohorts without the extra fuss and cost of travel. Plus you can wear your PJ’s and still look presentable! :0)
So, here’s the plan:
Sandy & I are scheduling two ON-LINE YEAR ONE COHORTS for this fall (dates below are still tentative) and, in order to keep things intimate, we plan to limit our class size to eight students per cohort.
Tentative On-Line Cohort Weekend Dates/Times for the School Year 2020-2021 running on US Central Time Zone (9 am to 5 pm).
ON-LINE COHORT ONE: Fri/Sat – Sep. 11/12, Fri/Sat – Nov. 13/14, Fri/Sat – Jan. 15/16, Fri/Sat – Mar. 19/20, Fri/Sat – May 7/8.
ON-LINE COHORT TWO: Fri/Sat – Oct. 2-3, Fri/Sat – Dec. 4-5, Fri/Sat – Feb. 12-13, Fri/Sat – Apr. 9-10, Fri/Sat – May 21-22.
If you are interested, go to the Sustainable Faith registration page, fill out an application, which is a non-binding agreement. When you signup for one of these two cohorts, this will begin the application process and after we’ve had an opportunity to chat with you directly, answering your questions, etc., you may place your $400 deposit which will hold your spot for the on-line cohort of your choice.
