I approach supervision as a practice where we take a contemplative loving look at God’s movements in your work with directees. For seasoned directors in peer supervision we celebrate sightings of God you see unfolding in you and your directees as I hold a safe place for exploration, accountability, and consultation while you consider barriers and challenges in your work. For directors-in-training, supervision includes the above, yet with greater emphasis on discerning your call, questions, instruction, skill building, and attending to how direction is shaping your experience of God. Supervision work is on behalf of your directee/s and for your growth and nourishment as a director. We consider together the mystery and fullness of what is transpiring for you and your directees.
Contours of supervision:
Supervision is a process that can include education, consultation around questions you bring, and self-reflection. Sessions will typically be scaffolded by self-reflective supervision tools you complete and send me ahead of time. (I will make these forms available to you). During our times together we will consider what you notice about yourself as you reflect on the session you bring to supervision, how the session unfolded, and what you feel you are learning about yourself and spiritual direction as we reflect on it together.
I meet directors in our Tree House Prayer Cabin or
via zoom on Tuesdays-Thursdays, 9-5 p.m.
Standard fee for individual session: $85.
Flex fee option: $70.+
Group session: $50 per person (2-3 directors)
The flex fee moves in both directions, helping even out our system's unequal access to economic resources. Assuming a minimum supervision payment of $70, an alternative to the standard fee is to add $15 to the amount you receive for the direction you provide. If you receive $50 per session, compensate me at $70 per supervision session, if you receive $80 per session, consider a $95 payment, etc.
