A One-Day Ignatian Retreat for Women
We all carry Sacred stories. When our Sacred stories are not heard or undervalued, as the stories of women often are, we lose connection to who we are – to ourselves, to the Spirit, to others, and to creation. We forget what we know to be true.
Reflecting on questions such as “How does God see and hear me? Where is the Spirit leading? What gets in the way of my response?” will help us tell our story. Sharing our Sacred stories, we will accompany one another in remembering our identities as beloved daughters of God.
The day consists of presentations, prayer, and spiritual conversations. We draw from the wisdom of Ignatian spirituality, to discern the movement of the Spirit in our everyday lives.
