book coverJoin Hebrew College March 23, 7:00-8:30 p.m. (EST) for a conversation with Roslyn G. Weiner PhD STM, a spiritual director at Hebrew College and in the Greater Boston community and author of Seeking in the Company of Others: The Wisdom of Group Spiritual Direction, published by Spiritual Directors International Press, November 2021.

Moderator: Rabbi Or Rose, Founder & Director of the Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership at Hebrew College

Respondent: Dr. Claire Wolfteich, Professor, School of Theology, Co-Director, Center for Practical Theology Boston University.

This fall, under the auspices of the Miller Center and the Center for Practical Theology at Boston University, Weiner initiated a spiritual direction group for future clergy, both Jewish and Christian. The evening will include several respondents commenting on the use of this group work in Interfaith settings and from different faith perspectives.“I wrote this book to share the fruits of 18 years of convening small groups of persons who want to notice more fully the sacred elements of ordinary life. The practice we explore and cultivate is an ancient one called spiritual direction. I have created an innovation to that approach which is universal in its applicability and suitable for people of any religious tradition and/or spiritual leaning.” (Roslyn Weiner)

Roslyn G. Weiner, PhD, STM, a spiritual director and psychologist, has been leading spiritual direction groups and accompanying individuals for nearly two decades. She communicates her passion for the practice of spiritual direction through writing and teaching, but primarily by listening closely for the sacred whisperings within her own soul and the souls of those who invite her to witness their seeking. A member of Temple Emanuel of Newton and the Jewish Community of Amherst MA, she received a PhD in psychology from Yale University and an STM degree from the Boston University School of Theology. Her book, “Seeking in the Company of Others: The Wisdom of Group Spiritual Direction” was published by Spiritual Directors International Press in November, 2021. Read more here

The event is co-hosted by the Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership of Hebrew College and the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College.
