Our major training program in giving the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is a Three-Phase Program. Each phase is an entity in itself. Candidates apply for each successive phase separately upon successful completion of the previous phase.
Phase One, component two:
Exploring the Heart of Ignatian Spiritual Direction
November 13 – December 6 2019 *
If one has previously made the Spiritual Exercises and does not feel called to do so again, one may apply for component 2:
Approximately four weeks of seminars; includes study of the Spiritual Exercises, Discernment of Spirits, the life and wisdom of Ignatius, training and practicing skills in listening as spiritual directors. Space is limited.
Phase One is an intensive educational experience, not a practicum in Spiritual Direction.
