In the words of a former staff member, Catherine Maine: “The Jubilee program breathed new life into my being. It offered me deep connections… wonderful grounding and a lovely sense of soaring. It helped me name and understand the Holy and my spiritual life in a completely different way.”

What is spiritual direction?
Spiritual direction is a process of accompanying people on a spiritual journey and helping them grow closer to God (or the sacred, the holy, or a higher power). Spiritual direction helps people learn how to live in peace, with compassion, promoting justice, and as humble servants of that which lies beyond all names.

Practical learning in spiritual growth, soul development and the art of spiritual direction
The program is about:
- Understanding oneself and others
- Being faithful to one’s inner soul life that sees no divide between heart and intellect
- Opening to the world of spirit while being grounded in the Christian tradition
- Practicing forms of service, meditation and prayer that can transform our lives
Empowering the human spirit to live into its inherent potential
The aim is to experience together a spiritual journey that awakens the human spirit to the influences of creation, western culture and Spirit in our lives.
With a wide variety of teaching tools and spiritual practices, the focus is on the art of listening, contemplation, imagination, and discernment; to broaden understanding of soulful living as the basis for true right action.
The program offers mentors who support and supervise learners, helping them engage as catalysts in creating contemplative communities and providing spirit-filled leadership wherever their journeys take them.
Ontario Jubilee offers Sabbath rest and a rich network of companions for the journey.
The next cohort is scheduled to begin June 2018
