Learn from People who Knew Henri Nouwen
Henri Nouwen was one of the most famous teachers - and practitioners - of spiritual direction in the 20th Century. He was passionate and compassionate, insightful and encouraging - a Catholic priest, professor and author of more than 40 books (8 million copies sold and counting). But in spite of his popularity and fame, he's perhaps best known for his humility and humanity. (He referred to his own spiritual direction as "spiritual friendship" or simply being a "soul friend.") Nouwen taught at Yale and Harvard Divinity Schools. And one of his students, who received spiritual guidance from Nouwen and also took Nouwen's course on spiritual direction, is our co-presenter for this webinar, Michael Christensen.
