On October 15, 2012, Susan Landau-Chark and Rabbi Anna Maranta launched their Jewish Spiritual Direction Training Program.  This program is the first of its kind in Canada.  Comprised of eight units, the program will prepare individuals wanting to become spiritual directors with in the Jewish wisdom tradition.  Two units guide students to deepen their spiritual journey.  The four units that follow address specific issues that spiritual directors may encounter as they work with their clients.  The eight unit is a mandatory exam unit for those who wish certification. 
For Jewish individuals who want knowledge and skills to work in interfaith settings, there is an optional unit that introduces students to this information. For students wishing to become Interfaith Spiritual Directors, a full training program will become available in 2013.
