    Looks good. I did my training with SPIDIR see their website for a course starting in September. spidir.org.uk.

    1. Yes, this course is really an out-crop of SPIDIR. Rev. Joanna Gallant and her husband Nick Gallant now teach the SPIDIR training course for spiritual directors (which I also did myself). This is a sort of second year follow-on, with a particular emphasis on historical spiritual writers, looking at their writings, and applying it in practical direction situations.
