Spiritual Direction is especially helpful to persons seeking to develop a relationship with God, when one wants to explore new methods of prayer, or when prayer becomes difficult.  It is also for those who need help in discerning the call of the Spirit or who need a companion on the spiritual journey to walk with and listen to them.

Formation Courses for Ignatian Retreat–Giving and Spiritual Direction in a Community and Institutional Context

Module 1  
FOUNDATIONS OF IGNATIAN RETREAT-GIVING AND  SPIRITUAL DIRECTION


Foundational to the ministry of retreat-giving and spiritual direction is a deep experience of God’s love and the experience of accompaniment that helps one to notice, relish and respond to God’s person and action in oneself and one’s world.  Hence, every applicant to our Directors’ formation modules are required to go through an individually-directed retreat preferably guided by a CIS staff or senior associate.

TARGET PARTICIPANTS
This course is designed for those who desire to experience an individually-directed retreat in preparation for training and formation for the ministry of accompaniment. This will also benefit lay, religious, and clergy leaders in the ministry of accompaniment who proceed from different spiritualities and who wish to immerse themselves into the wellspring of Ignatian traditions of prayer and retreat-giving and spiritual direction. The CIS staff may recommend waiving this Module as a prerequisite to Module 2 for participants who have recently gone through an 8-day or longer individually directed Ignatian retreat and present evidence in the interview that they already possess some equivalent of the module course objectives for Module 1 as described below. As we need to ensure a common foundational experience of prayer and accompaniment, the CIS staff members reserve the right to recommend that an applicant
go through Module 1 if they deem it more helpful for both the would-be participant and the class he or she will join.

The Joys And Pains Of Singlehood

I once heard a single friend of mine say, with tears in her eyes, that perhaps the reason why she is single is for her to be a “lover of the world”, that not having a family, a husband and children of her own, she could be family, a lover and a mother of the world.  It was obvious that this realization of her purpose has sustained her in all her pursuits as an educator and motivational speaker.  When I first heard this from her, to me it seemed a halo suddenly appeared...
