VNC offers deep study of Christian spirituality

Posted: Friday, September 5, 2014

Victory Noll Center, 1900 W. Park Drive, is offering an extended program that will delve deep into the study of Christian spirituality. "Foundations of Christian Spirituality," is a year-long reflective study of the Wisdom Tradition over the centuries. Participants will meet on 10 Thursdays from September of 2014 to May of 2015 for day-long sessions from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided each session.

The program will explore the classic elements of monastic and contemplative life.  The program offers a reflective personal and transformative process for all who desire deeper life in Spirit and more intentional living of the Christian life in Christ. The rich and inspiring teaching is centered on the saints, mystics and spiritual teachers of the Christian centuries, personal contemplative prayer practice and the writing and living of a personal Rule of Life.

Each session will be a separate topic and have required readings.  Participants will be introduced to the practice of contemplative prayer and spiritual discernment. Those completing this initial program may apply for Phase II of the program, “Spiritual Direction Program and Practicum," in which participants will engage in a two-year formation to prepare them to become spiritual directors.
