compass-rose

This is for you if you are interested in exploring or deepening your calling to help others through a ministry of prayer guiding.

The 2018 course will probably take place over eight Saturday mornings, followed by two residential weekends early in 2019, plus one further Saturday morning following the residential weekends. Unfortunately we have had to cancel the course planned for 2017. 

It is essential that you are able to attend all Saturday mornings and the two weekends. 

The course looks at various aspects prayer accompaniment within the context of Ignatian spirituality, including:

  • The Ignatian journey
  • The place of desire
  • Listening skills
  • What are we listening for?
  • Images of God
  • Consolation and desolation
  • Discernment
  • Supervision

Following input on these areas, participants work in groups of three (triads) with a member of the course team to practise listening and discernment together. You'll also have opportunities to watch role plays and to ask questions in the full group sessions.

You will need to have made an Ignatian retreat either in daily life or residentially prior to joining the course.
