Spiritual Guidance Mentor Certificate
Earliest start date
The Spiritual Guidance Mentor Training (SGMT) certificate was developed for individuals who wish to mentor and guide others on their Spiritual Path and learn more about themselves. This mentoring is a kind of holistic coaching that engages body, mind, and spirit. Students will learn how to provide support, encouragement, and direction to spiritual seekers while obtaining the necessary skills and experience to serve others. A spiritual guidance mentor operates within a focused set of issues that most seekers face at some point. A spiritual guidance mentor is not a psychotherapist or licensed counsellor but rather acts as a wise spiritual advisor or an experienced guide along the Spiritual Path.
A useful spiritual guidance mentor is someone who is actively engaged in a set of spiritual disciplines, who has a clear sense of personal ideals, regular prayer and meditation life, and an ongoing study of one’s dreams. People already working in these professions find great value in the SGMT certificate program: counsellors, social workers, psychologists, teachers, art therapists, yoga instructors, energy workers, clergy, health care providers, nonprofit professionals, and those in community and prison outreach. The SGMT certificate can also enhance one’s own spiritual life and foster personal spiritual growth.
