Emmaus Supervision Program 2022/23
We are excited to launch our Emmaus Supervision Program!  This program has been developed in response to the demand for professional supervisors in individual ministry – priests, chaplains, spiritual directors, spiritual health workers, pastoral carers etc. It is a program for the formation of competent, experienced professional supervisors. The program draws on the encounter of the two disciples with Jesus on the road to Emmaus.

Emmaus is studied part-time over eighteen months.  It comprises a number of four-day intensives (in the Victorian school holidays) and 2 x 14-week seminars, followed by monthly gatherings to continue supervision input and practice. The program begins in February 2022 and concludes in June 2023. For information, visit our Emmaus webpage.

Taster Session, 11 September 2021, 9.30am-11am AEST
Our recent Siloam Taster Session was a great success and we were blessed to meet many fellow pilgrims, some of whom are considering studying our Siloam Program in 2022.  We have decided to hold another Taster Session in mid-September, giving attendees the opportunity to briefly learn a bit about Heart of Life before breaking into groups for an experience of either the Siloam Program, the Emmaus Supervision Program, or Let the Heart Listen.
