About the event
Mid-Winter Fire - Exploring the Dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola 'Whatever you are doing, that which makes you feel most alive...that is where God is.'- St Ignatius of Loyola Join Sister Eveleen Retreat House and Ignatian Spiritual Director Colin Renouf for this 2-night silent retreat exploring the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola. We will begin by reflecting on: Who was Ignatius? And what are 'The Spiritual Exercises'? Then we will consider some of the key themes of the Exercises: Radically Loved, Profoundly Broken, Desire and Intimacy, Contemplating Christ and Awareness. The goal of the Exercises is to grow in union with God, thus gaining inner freedom and becoming more like Christ who was free to love and to serve.
