Graduate Diploma in Spiritual Direction
Dayspring offers an experience-based program which is linked to peoples’ journeys and academic training. This involves training in spiritual practice which allows you to begin at your particular level, but encourages you to journey further.
The belief in spiritual direction as a significant aid to our spiritual journey has led to Dayspring offering professional training for people responding to recognized gifting in spiritual direction. The Graduate Diploma in Spiritual Direction is specifically designed for this purpose, offering practical training opportunities in practicum contexts.
Our course is Nationally Accredited through the Australian College for Advanced Studies. The Dayspring Graduate Diploma in Spiritual Direction is a recognised program that meets the requirements of the Formation Guidelines of the Australian Ecumenical Council of Spiritual Direction.
