The Center is expanding . . .
Its ripple effect is now extending to Asia!
CenterQuest (CQ) - is an ecumenical hub for the study and practice of Christian spirituality. CQ began in 2013 and launched the inaugural cohort of its hybrid School of Spiritual Direction (SSD) training program in 2015. After the end of the 5th cohort in March 2022, CQ took a contemplative pause before resuming cohort 6 in 2024. In between this period (2023-2024) is when we are running the CQ Asia-SSD pilot program.
CenterQuest ASIA just officially launched its pilot offering in Baguio City, Philippines this past January 25-30, 2023.
After seven years of laying the foundation and establishing fruitful networks and collaborative relationships with key contacts from various Asian countries, our CenterQuest Asia core team has finally witnessed our shared vision of field testing our international School of Spiritual Direction (SSD) program in an exclusively Asian context materialize.
"The CQ School of Spiritual Direction is such a rich venue where theory and praxis cohere tightly together within the context of a supportive community. My own experience was transformative and that would not have been possible without my mentoring group. I have been involved in several training programs in spiritual direction and I can confidently claim that my mentoring group experience is unique to CQ. There, hospitality and compassion are offered and the contemplative-evocative approach is modeled. Within that kind of environment one learns by osmosis."
