ABOUT THE RETREAT

The First Spiritual Exercises are a form of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius newly presented by Jesuit Michael Hansen SJ in his innovative book, The First Spiritual Exercises (see www.fsecloud.life for more info).  This retreat, “Inner Peace in Divine Love” is a four-week retreat (plus a closing session) made in the midst of daily life, created for the gift of inner peace and for those with a desire to experience divine love.

The retreat involves:

  • 20-40 mins of structured daily prayer and spiritual exercises from Monday through Thursday;
  • An additional spiritual exercise on the weekend;
  • Weekly meetings where…
    • Presenter Eric Watson, S.J., will introduce an aspect of the First Spiritual Exercises and give you an experiential taste of the week to come;
    • You will gather with skilled small group facilitators and other retreat receivers, for sacred listening and spiritual conversation.
