Ruth Haley Barton has been a student, a practitioner, a teacher and a leader in the area of Christian spirituality and spiritual formation for twenty years.

Many Christians are longing for more in their spiritual lives. They want more than information about God; they want transformation in God's presence. They want more than externally imposed "oughts" and "shoulds"; they want a way of life that is congruent with their heart's deepest spiritual desires. They want more than momentary inspiration; they want to experience the spiritual disciplines that open them to God's transforming presence.

Ruth Haley Barton speaks, teaches and provides guided experiences on spiritual formation themes and practices, spiritual leadership and community-building and discernment to help churches and Christian organizations become communities of authentic spiritual transformation.

Each of the events listed on the right can be presented in a variety of formats—plenary addresses, one-day conferences, or weekend retreats that include time for guided experiences. These events, led by Ruth Haley Barton, are based on her books with expanded content that drills deeper into the topic.
