Institutes & Intensives

 Full Day Institutes & Intensives 

 Half Day Institutes 

In-depth, hands-on learning.


Practical wisdom that can encourage your development both personally and professionally.


Spiritual Directors International is pleased to offer full-day and half-day institutes and intensives on April 23rd, 2020 as a lead-in to the main conference. Seven of the Institutes are full day offerings happening congruently, so you may only register for one. The exception to this is Roshi Joan Halifax's morning institute and the Writer's afternoon institute, which can be paired.


Institutes and intensives are an add-on cost to the conference; you may choose one when you purchase your conference registration.
