Interfaith Spiritual Director Interns

updated January 2018

The following individuals are working to complete their field work as Spiritual Director interns before they are eligible to be certified by The Chaplaincy Institute.  Interns are available to provide spiritual direction at no charge to their directness.

Providing Complimentary Spiritual Direction sessions

Students enrolled in the Interfaith Spiritual Direction Certificate Program provide complimentary spiritual direction sessions to clients to develop and hone their spiritual direction skills. This contextual learning gives each student the opportunity to integrate the concepts and intellectual constructs into the flow of lived experience. This is where each student can test their wings and begin to grow their skills within the supportive structure of our learning community.  Sessions can be done in person or virtually.  The following are current interns:
