Date: October 2017
Duration: 5 hours 1 minutes
With brilliant insights and exceptional teaching, this course will enrich your spiritual life.
The Spiritual Exercises is the greatest guide for discernment ever written. 500 years after its publication, it remains a vital resource for hundreds of retreat centers, schools, and religious congregations around the world. St. Ignatius’s manual for spiritual growth has given guidance and joy to countless retreatants and learners.
This 12-lecture course explores the Exercises with fresh eyes. Award-winning author and Boston College professor Tim Muldoon delivers lively presentations that speak to the hearts of men and women from all walks of life. Grounded in Ignatian spirituality, it draws on wisdom from remarkable men and women across religious traditions, giving you innovative and practical methods of discernment amidst the bustle of modern life.
You’ll explore lives of mission whose examples will inspire you to lead a life given in service to God and others, giving you greater purpose and love. You will also discover fresh approaches to daily practices of reflection, prayer, and contemplation. Like Ignatius, you will heal past pains, notice God’s ever-present work, make more life-giving choices, and observe the daily movements of your consolations and desolations.
Discernment is not only a practice but also a journey towards self-knowledge. Step back from today’s distractions and see the flame of joy alight in all things.
