Event Date: 
Friday, November 4, 2016 (All day)

Only one week left to apply for the 2017 New Contemplative cohort!

Do you know an inspiring spiritual companion under the age of forty? Think of the young people in your network—who might you reach out to?

The 2017 New Contemplatives Initiative is a scholarship and bursary award that creates opportunities for spiritual guidance and contemplative formation for those in the first half of life; people under age forty.

New Contemplatives will receive a full scholarship and bursary for Spiritual Directors International’s Seeking Connection conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 20–23 April 2017.

If you would like to have SDI contact someone and ask him or her to apply, fill out this short nomination form.
