Policies and Principles
Attendance at all sessions is a priority. Community is created best with a stable, consistent group that can rely on each other. If for any reason you cannot attend, please notify your facilitator immediately. Resonance Exploring sessions are the second Saturday of each month, September – May, from 9:00 am – noon.
Confidentiality is a core value of Care and Counseling Center, and Resonance. We ask that when you are outside of these walls, you refrain from discussing any personal information from any fellow members. We all choose to create trust with a commitment to value confidentiality.
Assignments will include a variety of materials including books, articles, podcasts, videos, etc. It is expected that students will create time to review assigned materials in order to fully participate at each session.
Participation will include discussion of ideas presented in materials, sharing of one’s personal experience and perspective, as well as actively engaging with others in a compassionate and respectful manner. Everyone’s learning is enhanced by exposure to different experiences and outlooks; we are hoping you will experience a sense of safety, allowing you to be bold and honest.
Spiritual Narrative is the story of your own spiritual journey. Each student will craft an expression of their own narrative before the end of the Resonance Exploring program. Creativity is encouraged; students may present in music, visual arts, storytelling, writing, etc. It is key for participants to value and understand their own subjective spiritual experience as they move through a broader community.
Personal Spiritual Director relationship is required for participation in Resonance Exploring. For students who are not already in a Direction relationship, your facilitator can help you find a good fit.
Tuition payment is to be submitted before August 2107 in order to begin the Resonance Exploring program. Installments can be arranged depending on date of registration.
Diversity and Inclusivity
Care and Counseling Center and the Resonance Spiritual Direction Training Program are passionately committed to respecting and celebrating diversity and inclusivity in all areas
It is our expectation that all participants will share an enthusiasm for connecting with others, both alike and different from themselves. There will be no tolerance for language or behavior that disrespects another person.
Resonance does not promote a particular faith position, allowing participants to find their own language and understanding for their own journey. We welcome those who are active in an established faith tradition, and those who are in the process of discovering where they might fit.
