Frequently Asked Questions
How often do you meet?
We meet September through June at the Franciscan Spiritual Center in Milwaukie, OR - typically on the second Friday and Saturday of the month. On Fridays we gather from 1-5pm and on Saturdays we meet from 9am-5pm.
Is this an in person program or may I participate online?
Because we are a highly experiential training program and do a lot of things “hands on” and in community, it is always best if you can be here in person and we highly recommend that if at all possible, you be present. However if you live far away you may participate online using Zoom Video Conferencing. (Due to the COVID crisis all of the present cohort for 2020-2022 has been participating online.)
Are there any scholarships available?
We DO have scholarships available. But we also encourage you to consider what you can pay...and prayerfully invite others to invest in your training and development by helping to support you as you learn and grow. Whether you do this with a personal ask or a GoFundMe type approach - any donations that you gather will be designated for your training. If you want more info, please contact Eileen.
Are payment plans available?
Yes - here are some options. Feel free to ask if you have other needs.
Annual - you can pay all at once - $2,000/year.
Bi-annual - You can pay 2 yearly installments (4 total) - with $1,000 due in September and $1,000 due in January. That would repeat in the second year of the SDTP.
Monthly - $200/month (for 10 months in session)
