The Jesuit Institute offers various levels of training in Spiritual Direction: (In total 5 consecutive years of training)

  • Level 1: An Introduction to Spiritual Direction:
    • Ngi Hamba Nkosi: This is an introductory training in facilitating an Ignatian Parish retreat in a township context. Previous experience of a Tsoseletsa retreat is a pre-requisite for attendance on this course.
  • Level 2: A three year training in Spiritual Direction
    • A three year course offered in 8 four-day modules over the first two years (these are offered at Lumko, a residential centre, to enable people from all over Southern Africa to attend) in Johannesburg, with an extra year to complete the practical requirement of 50 supervised hours of spiritual direction in a pre-agreed variety of modes and settings.
      Acceptance on the course is determined by previous training and experience. The course is offered from an Ignatian point of view, but is designed to be of benefit to people whose dominant spirituality is not necessarily Ignatian. See the Spiritual Direction Training Prospectus
