Spiritual Formation Workshop

Pointe Vierge offers formation and guidance in facing the complexities of a lived life; business, career, beliefs, decisions, and critical issues. We seek to establish an “ensouled” foundation.

Events in the international and national scene point up the need for ongoing grounding in our values and establishing alignment between our personal inner core and our concrete daily lives.

We believe that this alignment is essential in developing a mature response to life’s issues of ultimacy and intimacy. It is core to spiritually grounded decision making.

Our founding partner, Vic Pergola, has spent years in preparation (ongoing) in building a competency in a number of fundamental disciplines to this effort: depth psychology, theology, scripture, Western and Christian history, and the traditions of spirituality.  Please join us!
