We have two new spiritual direction groups beginning fall 2017 - one for men and one for women (TBA).

 Spiritual Unfolding for Men
Tending the Male Soul 
 
 

Are you looking for a way to deepen your spiritual life among a small, dedicated group of men? If so, you are invited to join with 4-6 men as companions along a shared path—intentionally tending to spiritual unfolding in men.

When: Fourth Fridays of the Month beginning in September 2017
Where: Bread of Life, 1260 Fulton Avenue, Suite A, Sacramento CA
Time: 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Cost: $40/session (a sliding scale is available)

If interested, please contact office@breadoflife.org or call (916) 648-1803. We will connect you with our facilitator to arrange a phone interview to discuss the planned format, whether it would be a good “fit” for you, and if you would be able to commit to a monthly meeting for at least six months.

Please be thinking about what draws you to meeting with other men in a safe, confidential small group.

Facilitator: Lew Robinson is a spiritual director with Bread of Life and Franciscan Living. He was trained in the art of spiritual direction at Bread of Life and is a semi-retired university professor


Tending our Souls in Community
A Spiritual Direction Group for Women

Are you looking for a way to deepen your spiritual life in a small dedicated community? If so, we invite you to consider joining with 5-7 people for a nine-month spiritual direction group.

When: 3rd Monday of the month beginning October 16, 2017
Where: Bread of Life, 1260 Fulton Avenue, Suite A, Sacramento CA
Time: 1-3 PM
Cost: $40 - $75/session paid quarterly in advance (sliding scale; no one will be turned away if costs are an issue)

Interested? Please contact office@breadoflife.org or call (916) 648-1803. We will connect you with our facilitator to arrange a phone interview that includes the following questions with an exploration of the planned format and how it might or might not fit your stated interest at this time:

  • What draws you to this work and this group at this time?
  • What ways are you already engaged in actively tending your own soul? What’s life-giving about that? What ‘more’ do you seek?
  • Are you able to commit to a monthly meeting for nine months? (We will likely skip August, depending on the group consensus).

Facilitator: Carol Abbott is a spiritual director with Bread of Life, and a member of the faculty for Bread of Life’s spiritual formation program Listen to Your Life. Carol was trained in the art of spiritual direction at Bread of Life, and is a retired educator.
