Academic Year : 2022
About this course

What is spiritual care and direction?

For me, it is a journey of longing and grace. For the spiritual carer, it is a journey of longing to know God deeper as one loves God and neighbor in the doing of spiritual care and direction; and to one’s delight, experiencing God’s abundant grace for both self and people in the process. For the people, it is a journey of longing for wholeness as a person and of encountering God’s grace on the journey in and through the person of the spiritual carer. The focus of this module is essentially lay counselling. It is broad and practical-oriented. The spiritual carer will be introduced to a process-based counselling framework as well as embark on a journey of Spirit-controlled self-leadership of their inner world so as to provide care from the inside out. Attending and spiritual listening skills will be introduced and practiced.
