I have for more than thirty years offered spiritual guidance and provided academic education in spirituality in a cross cultural context. For the last twenty five years I have formed and supervised spiritual directors. For the last ten I have trained and mentored supervisors in the US and more recently at Manresa Jesuit Spirituality Centre in Ireland, encountering students from across the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Ireland, the UK, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, and Holland. I have contributed of essays to books and journals on the topic of spirituality and spiritual guidance and am currently at work on a book on supervision. I am touched deeply by the natural world, and the Ignatian sense of finding God in all things accords beautifully with my own experience. The fruits of my own 30-day silent Ignatian retreat remain with me decades later as do the graces of accompanying others through the long retreat and a sustained inner exploration afforded to me by psychoanalysis.

Together in the Mystery is a hybrid supervision training program for experienced spiritual directors involving 2 residencies with a year of long-distance supervision and mentoring in between. In 2019 I've offer this training in Portland, OR; Dallas, TX; Greensboro, NC; and Dublin, Ireland. (In Ireland, people participating in the program can receive an Advanced Diploma in Spirituality (Supervision) accredited by St. Patrick's College, Maynooth.)
In 2020, we will begin new cohorts in Oregon and Ireland -- and perhaps some places as well. I am willing to come to you if you have at least 5 experienced directors ready for supervisor training. Please contact me about that or see our site: togetherinthemystery.org
