The First Spiritual Exercises: Inner Peace in Friendship with Jesus
In the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius Loyola gave instructions to give his Exercises in two ways: the Full Spiritual Exercises (30 days or 30 weeks) and the First Spiritual Exercises. In his innovative book, Australian Jesuit Michael Hansen, SJ presents the First Spiritual Exercises in the form of retreats on inner peace accessible to anyone without getting away from ordinary life or meeting daily with a spiritual director. This four-week retreat (plus a closing session) involves 20-50 minutes of structured daily prayer four days a week, weekend spiritual exercises, and weekly meetings for sacred listening, spiritual conversation, and discernment. Whether you are new to or familiar with Ignatian spirituality, join this retreat to receive the gift of friendship with Jesus that gives meaning and real joy in life.
Cost of the retreat is $50 (book included) or $30 (bring your own book). Partial work scholarships available. Register by April 2, 2018.
