A Retreat in daily LIFE
Note: Although this video mentions 2022-2023, I am taking applications for the upcoming September - May time period.
- Do you want to go deeper with God?
- Would you like to experience Jesus more personally and powerfully?
If so, the Spiritual Exercises may be God's invitation to you in this season.
The Spiritual Exercises are a collection of meditations, prayers, and contemplative exercises that deepen your relationship with God as you journey with Jesus through imaginative prayer, entering into the Gospel stories and allowing his story to speak into yours. The Exercises were developed by Saint Ignatius Loyola to help people have a personal experience of Jesus, walking with him through his life, passion, and resurrection. For centuries the Exercises were given as a long retreat of solitude and silence, but today the most common way people experience them is through a "retreat" in the midst of daily life, combining daily meditations, prayers, and exercises with weekly meetings with a spiritual director.
I am certified to lead the Spiritual Exercises with individuals or groups and now am accepting applications for Fall 2023-Spring 2024.
I offer both a nine-month Retreat in Daily Life for individuals (an immersive, transformative experience) and a condensed group experience called Lightworks (a wonderful introduction to the Exercises).
