Stillpoint at Ghost Ranch brings Stillpoint’s highly regarded Art of Spiritual Direction Formation & Training Program from southern California to the exhilarating landscapes of the historic Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. This program is rooted in the deep contemplative Christian tradition and honors the sacred listening practices of other traditions, as well.
Participants who apply and are accepted in the program will travel to Ghost Ranch for 4 one-week residential intensives (two separate weeks each year). An experienced staff of distinguished spiritual directors will facilitate the sessions, using presentations, role-plays, discussions, demonstrations, spiritual practices, contemplative exercises and prayer. The Stillpoint program is noted for engagement and is a practicum. We pursue the art of spiritual direction with hours of practice with participants and staff so the graduates can experience and perfect their gifts in being spiritually present to others. Participants find that their lives change as their gifts of deep listening and presence emerge.
