NEW!! Discernment Class on Skype with Teresa Blythe
Sometimes you are at a crossroad in life and you need help discerning your way.
Where do I even begin?
Spiritual directors are trained to assist people in spiritual discernment. Discernment–especially vocational discernment–is a special interest of mine.
I am offering 3 one-hour classes by Skype on discernment. These will be confidential, one-on-one classes with a lot of interaction. If you are new to the concept, the classes will provide introduction and will take you through a process that helps you with a question you are seeking clarity on. If you are in need of a refresher, we’ll start where you are and move forward.
Class #2 We discuss, in depth, your discernment question.
Class #3 How you can assist others in their discernment (individuals or groups).
The classes are booked to fit your schedule and are $60 per class ($180 total).
Contact Teresa Blythe at email@example.com to book your sessions.
