Ignatian Spiritual Exercises

Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556). Spanish founder of Jesuit Order. Counter-Reformation. #1ab.
What Are the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises? 

The “Spiritual Exercises” is an intensive Retreat offered by the Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate of Vancouver. It lasts almost 9 months. It is individually directed (each participant has their own personal Retreat Director; so each person’s retreat is personalized & unique). It was composed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits.

This Retreat focuses on facilitating one’s actual Experience of God – and a practicum of Discernment involving finding the Lord in the deepest areas of one’s soul.  By praying through one’s own life and the life of Christ, one experiences God’s presence, healing, and call to salvation and vocation, including any major life decisions.
