Enrollment is closed for the 2020 cohort. 2021 enrollment will begin next Spring.
Pricing Because we are hoping to attract a broad base of participants, we are trying to keep pricing affordable for as many students as possible. We recognize that the global pandemic and economic repercussions have made finances a challenge for some of our spiritual family. If price presents a hurdle for you at this time, please do not hesitate to contact Executive Director, Debonee Morgan. We do not want students to miss an opportunity for spiritual growth based on hard times.
This breaks down to a little over $100 per session for the instruction/direction time, group interaction, and guided learning through the assigned materials. There will usually be one book required each month which should be less than $20. Your relationship with your personal spiritual director may include a fee.
Total Investment for your Exploring experience = only $1,000.
Policies & Principles Course Policies
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. Zeitgeist Exploring sessions are the second Saturday of each month, September – May, from 9:00 am – noon.
Confidentiality is a core value of Zeitgeist. 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 material including books, articles, podcasts, videos etc. It is expected that students will create time to review assigned material 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 Zeitgeist 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.
Diversity and Inclusivity: Zeitgeist Spiritual Direction Training Program is passionately committed to respecting and celebrating diversity and inclusivity in all areas
Faith, spiritual tradition and expression
Ethnic and racial
Gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation
Physical ability and neurodiversity
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.
2. Theological Stance:Zeitgeist 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.
All sessions for the 2020/21 Exploring school year will be held via ZG Zoom. Students will receive the recurring link upon registration.
In the future, (when safety is no longer an issue) students may have the option of gathering at the ZG headquarters office (shown below).
