Event description

This is a Professional Development Day presenting, Transforming Through the Wilderness of Grief in Spiritual Direction

Individuals in the wilderness of grief often turn to Spiritual Direction. How do we transform through loss and grief toward peace and hope? Grief is often experienced as a wilderness of searching for God, the promised life and healing. This seminar will explore the various human pathways and dilemmas encountered after or during loss. Whether that be death, divorce, job loss, health changes or other loss, by understanding and embracing the unwanted gift of grief we can better walk with and guide another toward transformation. In the wilderness we will find “the way”.


Rev. Dr. Tim P. VanDuivendyk, DMin, MDiv, BS is a retired Chaplain and Vice President for Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy with the Memorial Hermann Health System in Houston. Also, he is a retired Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist. Tim is the author of The Unwanted Gift of Grief and has supervised in Spiritual Direction Case groups for more than 30 years at the Cenacle and now Emmaus Center.
