Learn Day: The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius
18th February, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm£28
David Newman leads us in an exploration of the Spiritual Exercises and Ignatian spirituality.
The convalescence of a wounded Basque soldier in 1521 initiated an extraordinary spiritual and missionary movement that has made a huge impact on the church and countless Christians ever since. The spiritual disciplines that Ignatius of Loyala developed for himself and then for the group of fellow students in Paris that became the Society of Jesus, have become a significant means for individuals and groups to renew their relationship with God and discern His purpose for their lives.
In this Learn Day we will look at the background of the exercises, and the key themes and principles that are contained within them. We will consider how we can engage with them today, not just through the four ‘weeks’, by which they are set out, but in other varied and more informal ways. We shall give time to practise some of the exercises that are explored.
Our Learn Days are teaching days, but with time for consideration of what you are learning and the opportunity to share with others in group work.
