Praying with Ignatius: Breathing into the Examen and The Prayer of Imagination
Presented by Fr. J. Michael Sparough, SJ
Friday, May 18: 7 – 9 pm
Saturday, May 19: 9 am – 4 pm
Ignatius considered the Examen the most important daily personal prayer practice one could do. Many of us know of this prayer. Few practice it consistently. Fr. Michael takes us through the basics of this fundamental prayer experience, and then breathes new life into it by opening its form and meaning. Re-encounter a familiar prayer you thought you knew.
One of Ignatius’ distinct contributions to our spiritual heritage is teaching how to pray with our imaginations. Fr. Michael takes us deep into this experience with breath work, body postures, scripture dramatizations, and guided meditations. There will also be time for journaling, small group sharing, and reflections on how to lead others in this form of prayer.
Registration will open in February 2018.
