Spiritual Directors' Peer Group Supervision>
Collaborating with peers for supportive and non judgmental supervision is an ethical standard for people who work in therapeutic practices. Peer Supervision creates a safe, learning environment where the members relate as peers in an atmosphere of mutual respect, honesty and shared wisdom. Peer Supervision is necessary to develop the inner supervisor needed for accountability in the solitary setting that is Spiritual Direction. Stillpoint offers Peer Supervision to Spiritual Directors who are currently companioning directees, and who have received Certification from a recognized Institution, or are Interns in a Formation program.
Dates: Tuesdays: Sept. 9, Oct. 7, Nov. 4, Dec. 2
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

November 7 & 8 Introduction to the Enneagram
The Enneagram is an ancient and unfolding system of knowledge which describes nine universal patterns of human personality. It is a powerful tool of discernment that can help free us from unconscious and destructive repetitive patterns that dictate our worldview and prevent us from reflecting “the face of God” which we are all gifted to express.

Who Should Attend?
At Stillpoint we offer the Enneagram primarily in service of the Spiritual Life. It is recognized by contemporary spiritual teachers as one of the greatest aids to the transformational work of spirituality. The Enneagram is a tremendous tool for employers, teachers, therapists and all who work in service of human relations. It is one of the best psychological helps for anyone seeking to understand self or others, and very useful to understanding conflict in relationships.

November 10-13 BorderLinks Delegation
Inner-Outer-Inner– that is the rhythm that Ignatius suggests for a Spiritual Life. Spirituality is personal but never private. A true spiritual life leads us inward to encounter God, then outward to the needs of others, and back inside to reflect and renew. Our planned visit to BorderLinks provides the opportunity to interact with our neighbors in the U.S. - Mexican border. The plight of immigrants is central to the three great Abrahamic Religions, where hospitality to the stranger was given highest priority.
Dates: Monday, Nov. 10 through Thursday, Nov. 13
Cost: $290 per person. Includes Dormitory–style accommodation; Transportation; Meals; Facilitators; and all expenses during this unique experiential learning delegation.
Travel: Delegates are responsible for their own travel to and from Las Vegas / Tucson.
Registration: Places are limited to 11 first applicants. A non–refundable deposit of $75 is due by Friday, September 12th.

December 14 Advent Day of Reflection
Advent is a beautiful liturgical season that is frequently forgotten in the frenzy of pre-Christmas preparations. The real meaning of Christmas gets lost amidst the tinsel and baubles. Stillpoint offers this retreat annually to provide an oasis of quiet in a noisy world, a still place in the busyness, a small moment to reflect on the big promises of Scripture for The Reign of God in our lives and in our world.
