Going Deeper

The spiritual life is all about going deeper. But how to begin? As we develop Pace, courses, resources, events and other materials will be published right here! In the meantime, check out our Going Deeper downloads… at home, at work, on the train… in iso!


Pace is super excited to announce our very first Spiritual Direction Formation Program starting March 2021! This program will be led by Marie Thompson, experienced spiritual director, teacher, theologian, counsellor and Past President of the Australian Ecumenical Council of Spiritual Direction. This is a formation and training experience for those who feel called to the ministry of spiritual direction – of serving others as a spiritual companion. Details soon! Interviews in February 2021. If you’re interested, drop us an email from our Contact Us page and we’ll be in touch!


Keen to learn more about Pace and the contemplative life but not sure where to start? Check out this fascinating interview with Pace Companion, Marie Thompson. Marie has decades of experience as a contemplative, spiritual director, counsellor, theologian and Past President of the Australian Ecumenical Council for Spiritual Direction. Daniel and Marie discuss four key questions they encounter regularly in their work with those on the spiritual journey:

  • What is a contemplative presence?
  • Why live a contemplative presence?
  • How do you nourish a contemplative presence in daily life?
  • What do you see as the relationship between spirituality and peace?


  • What keeps you from lingering with your experience?
  • If you lived a more contemplative presence in your life what would be different?
  • How would you be different?
  • When are you most authentic?
