The Annand Program for Spiritual Formation

A gift from the Berkeley Divinity School to the wider YDS community, this endowed program prepares students for lay and ordained ministry through the integration of spiritual and intellectual life. Annand programs are intended to foster personal spiritual formation, provide experience with a variety of spiritual disciplines, and offer students a broad view on trends in spiritual expression. First-year students are invited to participate in small groups designed specially to support spiritual growth while making the transition to Divinity School life. The Annand Program also offers individual and group spiritual direction, quiet days, workshops, and a variety of small group programs. Open to all YDS students, the Annand Program can be an especially helpful resource for M.Div. students in fulfilling spiritual growth and formation expectations for their portfolio.
