Ignatian Spirituality course

The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola and the Art of Spiritual Direction (ISC for short!)

A few places are still available on this course, which is due to begin in late September... so if you've been thinking about it, now's the time to apply...

A three year course (held one day a week in the City of London) formed around the teaching and practice of Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises, written 500 years ago and still full of wisdom and insight for our contemporary society and each individual’s spiritual journey.

The course is taught largely on an interactive and experiential basis, with frequent opportunities for group discussion and participation. Alongside learning the skills of spiritual direction and an in-depth study of the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, the course works deeply on the individual participants as they have the opportunity to explore their own journey and spirituality. During the course participants who have not yet made the fulll Spiritual Exercises are expected to make them (either in daily life or as a 30 day retreat), go on an individually-guided residential Ignatian retreat and complete a number of assignments designed to deepen their experience and learning.

The three year course gives participants the necessary skills and competence to give the Spiritual Exercises, their Adaptations, and to offer on-going spiritual direction. The first year can be taken independently as a foundational course in Ignatian Spirituality and spiritual direction.
