Abstract
The presenting problem was to provide skilled and mature spiritual directors, grounded in Anglican sacramental theology and the Catholic contemplative tradition, for the Anglican Diocese in New England. To address the problem a two year training program, drawing upon the spirituality of the Christian contemplative tradition, was developed. The course included training in listening skills, prayer, meditation and other spiritual disciplines, group spiritual direction, and reading and writing assignments. The outcome of the course was to produce thirteen spiritual directors for the diocese, who meet with a combined total of 40 directees.
