Introduction to Spiritual Accompaniment

Fully Booked
Wednesday 01 - Friday 10 Aug 2018 (4:00pm - 3:00pm)
Published on 31 May 2017

The aim of this eight day course, which will run twice each year in 2017 and 2018 is to introduce participants to the basic principles of Ignatian Spiritual Accompaniment.  

It will include:

  • Listening skills
  • Discernment of spirits
  • A model of Ignatian accompaniment
  • Spiritual conversation
  • Ways of praying

The course will help deepen and improve one-to-one pastoral ministry, using Ignatian principles based on the Spiritual Exercises which will be valuable in a variety of pastoral settings. This course will also introduce some of the skills necessary for spiritual direction but, while the course may reveal a gift for spiritual direction, it does not provide sufficient training for people to offer spiritual direction.

Course requirements:

  • Commitment to one’s own prayer life and some familiarity with Ignatian approaches to prayer.
  • Experience receiving spiritual accompaniment on directed retreats or ongoing spiritual direction.
