Soul Space Retreat Leaders Formation Program with Barnabas Ministries

This program is for those who sense that God is calling them to grow in their own contemplative formation and in their capacity to generate environments for others to experience and reflect on the Spirit's presence in their lives. It is experientially based and offers an option of one or two stages of training. The first stage focuses on the gifts/skills needed to facilitate quiet days, the second on leading longer retreats. The first stage includes five 2-day residentials. More details on their website:
