Contemplative Group Spiritual Direction via Zoom

March 26, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Contemplative Group Spiritual Direction via Zoom
A conversation with spiritual directors Carol Fryer and Lindsay Boyer
Saturday, March 26th, 2pm to 3:30pm Eastern Time

Group spiritual direction can be a wonderful experience for contemplative practitioners who would like to go deeper into their practice. It can be easily adapted to the Zoom format. Spiritual director Carol Fryer will describe her experience of leading group spiritual direction on Zoom with participants from Zoom Centering Prayer groups. She will present her format and group guidelines and answer questions about how to get started and how spiritual directors can collaborate with Centering Prayer facilitators to set up spiritual direction groups. Our hope is to provide a template that might be helpful for people who are considering doing group spiritual direction online, encourage those who are experienced at group spiritual direction but are hesitant about using Zoom, and provide a forum for others who may already be doing group spiritual direction online and have wisdom to offer the Contemplative community. A representative of the Shalem group spiritual direction program will be on hand to answer questions about their program. We will begin with 10 minutes of Centering Prayer.
