Foundations in Spiritual Inquiry Primer: (first semester of the first year only)
During their first semester, first year students are required to take Foundations in Spiritual Inquiry, a spiritual counseling curriculum designed to support you in launching your own counseling with greater ease, confidence and skillful inquiry into matters of spirit. You are assigned a Foundations Counselor from our in-house staff and the 8 session non-refundable fee is included in your first year Tuition Plan.
Counseling & Supervision Fees: $100-$200 per month for 4 months per semester (paid directly to providers)
After the first semester of your first year, you will begin to see pro-bono Spiritual Counseling counselees and are required to participate in monthly supervision sessions (4 sessions per semester). Additionally you will need to be engaged in personal spiritual counseling for yourself (4 sessions per semester). These supervision and personal spiritual counseling fees are paid directly to the providers with whom you work. We have a diverse range of qualified spiritual counseling and supervision providers who have agreed to offer their services to our students at a discounted rate, ranging from $50-$100 per session.
After completing the four semesters of work, graduates participate in a special commencement ceremony held in New York City’s historic Riverside Church.
Students are responsible for purchasing required texts and training manuals as well as supplies required for their coursework each year of study. Most are available commercially and those not can be purchased through One Spirit.
