Each participant is required to maintain a spiritual practice, preferably daily, but absolutely no less than an average of five days a week. Participants must also keep a daily or weekly journal recording the practice, when practices are done, and a description of the experience that has personal meaning. Such descriptions may also include artwork, poetry, or other expressive ways to describe and document the practices.
The beginning and end dates for the spiritual practice requirement vary for each student and depend on your start date of the on-line program. Support is available to assist participants in creating a practice if so desired. Participants are asked to submit a description of their spiritual practice as homework early in the program.
Your spiritual practice journal is handed in on the assigned date, reviewed, checked off for completion, and returned. The required number of entries must be complete in order to meet requirements for graduation/ordination.
